Why don't you just get a chiller for your HK tanks? I think that is mandatory with the hot Asian summers. I don't think any Bees or Tigers will do well with HK summer weather. I wouldn't risk expensive shrimps due to the lack of equipment.

If my tanks was in Asia....I would have a PRL or PBL tank for sure...
I want to keep my tank as low tech as possible, and I don't want to raise CRS that much to want to get a chiller. My fish have been surviving the summer and winter of HK without chillers or heaters. I think the cherries will too, not sure about the tigers though, I will find out what I get back to HK.

What is PRL and PBL may I ask?

That light you are getting looks awesome, is it powerful enough to grow dwarf hair grass?

The light arrived today. Surprisingly small in a good way, however not enough light to grow any plants besides moss/anubias/ferns. Still thinking about planting some DHG in the background separated with a partition to prevent it from spreading to the foreground. Do you guys think DHG will grow in this tank?

Light thickness compared to Bic lighter. Slick.

Attachment 31481

Took out a ugly moss wall from another tank to help the cycle. House is to weigh it down. This moss and mesh is temporary.

Attachment 31482

First plants in this tank. X-Mas moss and Duckweed

I believe you have the chair positioning wrong, it should be directly in front of the tank

Oh, and where did you find that rock?

I picked out the rock in person at AFA last time I drove through SF. I tried finding a couple other smaller ones of the same type but they only had big ones. The chair is for my kids so they don't try to climb the stand.

Coo-el rock - looks like the moon. Is this the TT tank? They will show very nicely on that dark grey.

Yes, shrimp whisperer...this is the final destination for my TTs. Now where can I find some fire orange Neocaridinas to make this tank all orange? If I find some...I dub this tank...Agent Orange...
