100g & 10g

100g

FishNeedIt T5HO (2x54w) light
Hydor ETH inline heaters
FX5 canister

Built the stand using 4x4's, 2x4's and 1x10's. Pretty minimal but it matches the furniture in the house. It was heavily influenced by hydrophyte and his industrial stands. It was stained/sealed using Polyshades.

Now we are in business! Lucky me, bulk reef supply is only a 15 min drive away.

Sold the 55g setup to make room for my 100g rimless tank. Drew up a stand design that is basically Hydrophyte's design but no steel brackets and I added doors. Either going for a darker stain on the doors and black painted frame, or all black...I really like jcardona1's stand for his 190g tank, but with my uneven floors it is much easier to level something with 4 support legs.

Takes about 2 months. Weekly trims take about 15 minutes...I can't imagine having to do that on a large scale in an iwagumi setup.

Moved the 10g in preparation for the new 100g coming in. For some reason I get faster growth with the HC submersed...also, no heater in the tank either and the HC does just fine at 62F

Yep, people still have dialup modems. I'd rather warn those who fall in the minority and boost the ego of those who download the pictures in milliseconds when they see the 56k warning as a challenge.

After giving away a bunch of HC to other planted tank people here in MN, I added some rocks to the 10g and decided to go back to an Iwagumi scape. Once it fills in I will have to decide whether to keep the black background or go with white...

Will add pics tomorrow.
