This is a great little tank! I have a question, when you go submerged will you be adding pressurized co2 for the wabi kusa?

So I went a little overboard and did a little scape with some seiryu stones and 7 balls. Curious to see how you guys like it. Pics soon.

The trouble is, it's a bit of an algal mess at the moment...

Okay, okay, I know... This is a bad photo, lighting is poor on this side of the room. Real photos tomorrow, okay?

Looking great.

I love the way sand looks in small rimless tanks.

Here's a closeup. Sorry about the algae.

Plants consist of the two HM (Hemianthus micranthemoides) on the left and right, and the central ball consists of a ton of plants including but not limited to Alteranthera reinkii, Persicaria kawagoenum, Pogostemon stellatus 'narrow leaf,' Ludwigia palustris 'red,' some unidentified crypts, and Bacopa caroliniana.

Yep! Thanks. I might not end up using CO2 at all. It's doing well as it is and I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible.

Thanks Jake. I agree with you regarding the sand. I've never tried a tank with a light substrate before, and I really like this!

It is an Azoo Palm/Red Sea Nano filter. Small, cheap, effective.

They're awesome filters. I've got one, I'm about to get another.

Where are the shrimp? Or if you want to keep it simple, your one show shrimp?
