I WAITED 2 YEARS FOR MY 220 GALLON PLANTED
AQUARIUM. 220 PLANTED TANK what’s up everybody? Dustin and Dustin’s fish
tank is here. Episode 2…that’s right, number 2. This is
my 220 gallon fish tank so I am gonna tell you guys all about it. Let me start with the history of this tank,
okay… This tank was bought for 500 dollars a 2 and
half years ago and you know what happened, for two years. TWO YEARS, this tank sat in
my garage. Do you know what it’s like to have a 220 gallon
fish tank in your garage for two years? It’s like giving a kid a toy and telling him
he can’t open it at Christmas. It’s ridiculous.
But, I made it through and I was tough and now we are dealing with it so …aaaa! Wanna
point out what’s goin on here. For starters everything I did in this tank
took forever, okay? Like it took two years for even let me have
it in the house coz we were re-doing our basement. This log right here was sent from the heavens.
This thing is so sexy. I found it with my boy Jolly in a lake and I literally drug it
on to the boat and was like…yo! guys we are bringing this with me so deal with it.
He has fish tanks; he understands hope you guys will later on too.
So I wanted to point out some of the things that are going on and we are gonna continue
talking about aaa! I have a set of plants and plants are number
one. Honestly, the fish died it’s probably because
I am screwing with the plants and I’ll give you examples of that too but you know plants
is whats it all about. Plants put to the water, they look good, they
make your tank look natural. They are just like the beginning and end for me. So everything I am gonna talk about has to
mainly deal with the plants and a little bit with the fish. As you can see, I use dirt and clay in my
substrate and I have a whole episode on clay so I won’t bore you with it now. But the results
from it are just fantastic, like this plant was in my other Aquarium which you can’t see
that I just pointed out and It had like no relatives and now down in the clay it has
relatives. So I am really gonna emphasize that the soil
is very important. The soil…they say: that the plants absorb forty times more of iron
through their roots so it’s very important to have a good substrate.
You guys are gonn add iron to your tanks, keep adding it, you are doing good. But it
is not as good as a substrate. So umm… just wanted to talk about 220 a little bit and
we are going to keep rolling these things around.
So..This is the intro of the 220. Thanks for checking out my baby and if you
have any questions, I’ll l answer them all. Take care.
