Oh Ok I was curious about that too :P I have some photos for you all! I'm about to start the video so that'll take some time.
Here is the tank with the soil...and the mess I made on the carpet.
This shows about how much dirt I put in...around 1.5 inches
I've got my plans in front of me...even though I didn't have any plants and pretty much had it memorized (not too hard for a 5g like this).
Believe it or not this is after a couple of water changes...
Sorry for the blurriness. This shows a more aerial view of the carnage of dirt.
It's looking much much clearer
Needs a bit of glass cleaning but at least the water is clear
My desk currently...I am now completely surrounded!
Also, a bit of a surprise. When I checked my mailbox for my paycheck I found this (as well as my paycheck and a rejection letter from the SAO internship...honestly no surprise there)
So yeah I'm really really excited to start setting this up when I get back from break! I've got the moss in my 10g for break. The shrimp sure like it
I'll get working on the video. That has a better description of the process and what I learned from it. Let me tell you that this was not as easy as I was expecting...although I did mess something up (i explain in the video).
Thanks for checking guys!
