Is that Washington the state or DC? We here in WA state have potential for huge earthquakes but they happen so infrequently we forget about em!

This forum is great everyone. I am seriously considering setting up a 12gal long at my office. Major problem i see with this is over the weekend. Does anyone have an office set up in which they leave on timers over the weekend? Has anyone attempted this?

Thanks and i love all the great info your guys have provided.

I have a 12 long that I leave over the weekend and it is definitely set up on timers. I have my dosing schedule so that I does on Monday Wednesday and Friday over the weekend seems to be okay. The only thing I need to make sure I do is top off the water on Friday because my office environment so dry that by the time I come in on Monday I need to add a little bit more. There is a good amount of evaporation

TANK: Mr. Aqua 12 Gal Long
SUBSTRATE: Eco-Complete Substrate Fluval Stratum Top Layer
LIGHT: Catalina Aquarium T5 Solar 2 Bulb
FILTRATION: Fluval 106

MISC: Sieryu Stones or Driftwood. Maybe both. Still thinking it through.

This is the start of my planning on what the initial materials will be. I will think about Flora once i establish the setup. Anyone have any comments on my starting materials though?

Also thank you @nerdariostomp for the good information on office dosing and evap.

No problem. I like the single addition approach but have seen tanks with both wood and stone that look nice. HC is pretty common as well as dwarf hairgrass, but its really up to you and your vision of the look you're going for.

I was trying for glosso and will be swapping that out for staurogyne repens and probably some low growing crypt and I have some Anubias nana petite as well which looks cool

You may want to rethink the filter too. These things are rough to get good circulation in and a more powerful filter or a power head will help

do you think the 206 would be enough? or go with a different brand completely?

I wanted to do one but its at work so simplicity as the recipe. It'd be awesome to have one of these in a two level rack with a sump/riparium underneath in a 33 long (48x12x12)
