Penguin's Chi

Hey Feller TPT'ers!

So PetSmart had a cool sale of the Fluval Chi for 50% off so went out and got some!

Using RODI with Mr. AquaSoil
Flora: Micro Swords, Java Fern and a Barclaya bulb (hoping it germinates!)
Fauna: 5 peewee RCS. So far no problems with deaths due to ammonia!
Also some Ohko stones.

Here it is upon setup:

Here it is after sediment settled:


03/04/12

Eventually I want to add some BKK or something of the sort.
Thanks for l@@king!

OK copper, you got me!

Great set up! Love the driftwood. I bet BKKs would look sweet in there. Hope the plant germinates that you want to, good luck and looks good!

Once you get some plants in there it'll all come together. What size tank is that?
