Update?

Any update on this tank. I am very interested in the Ray2 LED transition. How did the HC do?

Hi guys!

sorry I haven't update mostly because we moved to another house. And since we moved (December 25), this tank has been forgotten lol. For some reason some of the HC survived the grueling below freezing temperature nights few weeks ago.

picture cheers!

Until I'm bald haha!

I'm not sure. This time I will make sure to flood the tank before it start dying like last time with HC. So maybe 2-3 months until it carpeted.

Do you plan on using Co2 for that UG? I might try some but I'm fearing that the money will be wasted cuz I'm not doing Co2.

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

Definitely need co2. Now that you've mentioned it, I'm going to pump co2 for this method. I'm not sure if its a waste of money, but just to boost up the co2 level lol.
