How is the tank looking these days?

Striving for aquatic success through many failures. And algae will not defeat me!

10/21 Update

Hey everyone, I've been really busy moving into my new apartment and all, but things have settled down, and it's finally time for an update!

So I really neglected my tank, and didn't dose it much, didn't trim it for over a month, and basically things went wild.

Surprisingly, even without the dosing, everything continued to strive (except for my dowonoi, it's been growing, but very thinly).

Unfortunately, the hairgrass took over the ENTIRE tank, and the HC remains hidden underneath all the HG. I guess it's my fault for not keeping up with the trimming.

Pardon the quality of the pictures because it's been taken with my phone, and it's right after a trimming and water change.

Anyway, here they are!











Thanks for looking!

Wow how did I miss this one. I love what you did with the hg, hc, and riccia. Combining them all makes it look really natural.

Tank: 20 gallons, 62 watts t5, DIY CO2

So, my RCS has been doing very good, babies everywhere, but my CRS has died... So instead of making this a CRS tank, I'm just going to make it a peapuffer/rcs tank. I don't mind rcs getting eaten, they're breeding faster then they're getting eaten, so I'm fine with that. I got 3 peapuffers, getting along together just fine. Here's a quick cellphone pick

Thanks, natural is the look I'm going for.

I took a few pictures with my camera, so I'll post some since I've been lazy and been just posting cell phone pictures.

Here goes:

Peapuffers! I love those guys! Too bad they would probably eat my shrimpies.

So, originally, I had a 40 breeder full reef tank before getting into planted tanks.

I sold my 40 breeder and all parts that requires a reef tank, and got the 60P (smaller and more convenient for my new apartment).

I just fell in love with these planted tanks, and couldn't help myself but start up another tank (getting into the multi-tank syndrome).

So I just got myself a ADA Mini-M yesterday!

So far, I have:
ADA Mini-M
27 watt Archaea light
Archaea CO2 Pro system with Paintball adapter
Zoo Med 501 Filter
Aquasoil
Driftwood which will eventually completely covered with Mini pellia.
HC from my 60P.

I wanted to keep this tank as simple as possible, and I don't plan on making a stand for it, so I needed the equipment to be minimal as well (since I can't hide it in a stand).

I ordered a glass diffuser for it, so still waiting on that.
Also, if anyone knows if there are lily pipes the size for the zoo med filter, please let me know!

Anyway, just set it up last night, so still a little cloudy with the aquasoil settling in and everything, and it'll be a while for everything to grow in, but here are a few pictures!









And here's one of the 60P today:


Thanks for looking!

I decided I didn't want to use the pierce co2 system, so I went ahead and purchased the archaea co2 kit with solenoid, and the paintball adapter. I also ordered glass lily pipes, glass check valve and bubble counter. Can't wait for everything to come in~
