This looks 10x better with shrimp, for sure.

HC looks like it's growing in pretty well, too.

Must. Resist. A. New. Tank.

Shrimp > Fish any day.

Let's see...amazing ADA tank...or a ton of money?

Wish I could have one, but my mom probably wouldn't agree with the price. I think everyone cringes at the price too despite the quality of the ADA products.

The rescape adds a lot of depth to the tank and hides some equipment, i like.

Nothing Ventured. Nothing Gained.

looking great!

for the par30 bulb you just screwed it into the lamp directly?

What lamp is that? the home depot Hampton bay one?

also on the vuppa did you put any extra media in it? and how is the flow?

Do! Aqua 20C - "pointy"

Love this little tank. I'm setting one up soon as well. It's great how you can reacape it and have fun with it. That's the beauty of nanos IMO.

By the way, did you use Aquasoil "normal" or "powder"?

I'm going with powder only.

Thanks! The bulb is just screwed into the lamp, I have no idea what brand the lamp is because I bought the bulb and lamp from someone else. The vuppa just uses the standard bio-cubes that came with it, the flow is good, for this small of a tank it's perfect as the only filter.

Thanks a lot! I'm using normal on this tank, I used powder in the last scape but it was way too expensive and I already had the normal type.

Looks great. I actually really liked your second layout. I am going to say what everyone else said, I just may have to go pick up this tank next time I am out in SF.
