Thanks CmL



Cheers clau! I like your quote!
Version 4 was blacked out for over a week due to CO2 issues so I'm getting all the plants back to health before I rescape, lights came back on yesterday. The rescape may not happen for a while though, I have to see if I can do it with just the soil that's in the tank, cause there's no more AS powder or normal left at AFA or ADG and I'm pretty sure my next design would need at least another 3 liter bag if not 9l. Went to place the order yesterday and was so pissed If anyone has some spare powder AS please let me know.

And yeah it's not a popular dimension because of the 30"... you pretty much need a hanging light fixture. I only have a 75P instead of a 90P because I bought this thing back when I was 14 (turning 20 soon) and that $100 difference was huge back when it was all the money I had and more (especially since it was for 6" and that's it, no other difference). If I were to buy a tank now it'd be a 90P for sure, I'd love that extra 6" of width to work with. The 30" really is perfect for a 150w MH though, and I just love MH shimmer. One day I'll have that 90P and some LED pendants for shimmer and extra space. For now the 75P is more than sufficient.

You'll have a lot of fun with this tank if you keep at it, the dimensions may seem a little strange be really do allow for a lot of creativity.


EDIT: version 4 is only using about half or a little more than half of the Seiryu I bought, so I still have new hardscape to play with. My goal with v.V is to create as different of a scape as possible with the same exact materials. Sieryu, HC, Xmas moss, and Eleocharis.

ya the lighting for its dimensions are the deal breaker for most im sure. wow only $100 more? woulda been $200+ more if i went 90-P?

id offer to sell you my leftover AS powder, but i doubt it would be worth the shipping costs over the border.

good luck on the new scape when you get er going, i'll be following that for sure! btw roughly how many lbs of seiryu is in v.IV?

Hi ,
Tank is very beautiful, plants and stones are a good choice.

to fill or not to fill?

been a month and 4 days since planting, surprised with myself how patient i've been, until now. really want to fill it......still no CO2 in my tank though. considering filling it and doing a temp 3-4 x 2L DIY system until I get my tank filled...that is asking for trouble though

I had wanted to submit this tank/build to this years IALPC, not to win but for the experience. with 8 days left and no H2O, i think that plan has left the building not matured enough anyways, just wanted the experience.

here some pics from last night:



cant get over the RR growth, really surprised more do not use this stuff for foreground

Looks amazing. Have you considered a lower foreground plant though? Only reason is your stones look more powerful and have more presence in your initial pics. I do like it as is but just thought that may be an improvement. Either way it will look really great. Love your stem choices as well.

Tank looks great and plants grew alot since initial planting.. whats was your light and misting schedule like?

I noticed in the beginning you had too much water, its good you lowered it.

Thanks! I have considered a different foreground, but trying to get away with one that doesn't need constant trimming. Im done with HC for that very reason. The current foreground will drastically change its look when I flood, but also might get a bit taller...not a good thing. The rocks dont appear as bold in the newest pic due to the light being farther forward than normal, takes away from the bold shadows it creates, but I do agree with what your saying.

thanks! light and misting sched. is all over the map

ya i had originally overfilled it to initially saturate the soil and help compensate for the slope.

How does one fill a tank like this? lol It looks SO great! But I would be afraid to fill this thing and ruin a part of your scape.
