Updates! With real photos!
As I mentioned in the last post, I'm really liking how the tank is coming along...I'm only having minimal algae issues (some GSA and a wee bit of BBA that I've been nuking with Excel) and finally today got around to hooking up my DIY Co2 (don't judge...I work 2.5* jobs!) so hopefully that'll change.
*I draw for $$ along with my two other jobs
Anyway, on to the moment you've all been waiting for, Pics!
Hopefully this manages to convey the awesome cave I've got going on with the driftwood better than my bb pic in the last post. As soon as I bought this tank I thought MUST HAVE MANZANITA! but I rather like the hardscape it has going now so I'm pretty sure it's gonna stay that way...unless I get bored with it in 6 months.
The "cave" up close:
Look at how much space I still have to work with:
SWEET. I'm planning on doing a real-deal foreground with this. Maybe not as awesome as HC or glosso, but that little tuft of microsword in there? I hope that guy covers the whole floor. Ideally I want a blyxa "barrier" between the taller plants and the forground for some variety, but we'll see what happens.
Uh oh...what's that over there? Lil baby tank. Fluval Chi. Will have a thread for it in the nano tanks section following this update
Tank from my level:
Tank from below:
Duckweed is a horrible horrible monster. I net out and throw away so much every day I want to bang my head against the wall...but I still thought this pic looked cool.
Anyway, now that it's starting to come together...comments, critiques please?
