This is my first rimless tank and third planted tank. I will be doing a dry start. I just hooked up the filter and filled the tank to check for leaks. Glad to report all is well. I should be ready to start planting by the weekend. I have to give credit to micrO's 12g tank. This is what sealed the deal for me to get this going.
