Wow! Thats a very nice and complete nano set. All that glass looks makes it look like a mad scientist lab kit. The new logo looks futuristic.

I put a dinner plate in my aquarium and slowly poured water on it.
Substrate got messed up a bit, but it hardly noticeable.

I've heard of using garbage bags or the little supermarket bags.

Have to agree that new logo looks really nice.

10gfornow, wouldn't your 2211 need a P-1 inflow for the lily? The 10mm out vs the 13mm out.

shrimpnmoss no i did a little DIY kinda thing so it works with the lily i have. i'll take a pic of it later.

Well i started a dry start on it today, will try to get pics of it but it is really humid in there so the glass is all foggy. my filter elbows still haven't come so i can't fill the tank until they do, but a dry start will allow the hc enough time to firmly root itself, i think i'll dry start it for two weeks.

so let me just make sure for the dry start, i do not need to dose anything into the water for spraying right? just regular tap water is good?

End of Week 3 DSM

have some good growth on the HC, the browning is from it being in the bowl for 4 weeks before it without light and CO2, but it's becoming rooted really well and is starting to take off. I am pretty sure i'm either gonna have CPDs in here or OEBTs still haven't decided yet.



some moss growing on the rocks:


close up of growth:


some plant that hitch hiked in on the rock in probably a seed
