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

Weekly maintenance just finished, the tank is looking great, I didn't think I'd like how this would turn out, but I love it now. So simple, so easy, so beautiful. Pics to come.

Sorry, I didn't see it. I won't be using CO2 in this setup. I was debating whether I should or not, and have decided upon the latter. It's just not necessary for these plants and would add a layer of complication.

Here's the update.



The whole tank.


Closeup of the Wabi Kusa.


One of the two smaller HM Wabi Kusa.


Location, location, location right?


Waiting a few more days to put these in. Will make for a quick Glosso carpet!

So if you can take a minute and imagine the scape with me, within a few weeks I'll have the two bushels of HM on the sides, the main Wabi Kusa ball in the center with the assortment of plants, and Glosso carpeting the front; I need to come up with something for the background. Suggestions are welcomed! Thanks for reading.

No problem. Yes, this one in fact contains a few small crypts. I have access to a wide variety of crypts, too

Glad to see some shrimp in there!

Me too! All I need now is some fish. Considering either Endlers or white cloud mountain minnows. What do you guys think?

For the price, you can't beat this tank. The silicone matches ADA's quality exactly. By far one of the neatest little tanks I've owned.

Whoa! The flooded WKs look great! Why no CO2, if I may ask? Fairly easy to manage and would make the transition from emersed to submersed that much easier...plus better growth in the long run. Plus, there's my text.

Thanks! Since I'm trying to prove a point that this can be low-tech and still work at the same time, I'm going to exclude it for the time being. I agree with what you've said, though. I'll need to do a high-tech Wabi Kusa setup soon. A 45-F, perhaps. Got your text, replied

Tanichthys micagemmae, maybe? Though, they tend to do better with more room to swim. Gorgeous little fish.

It's a shame Pseudomugil furcatus are too big for this cube.

If it were me, I'd load it down with Pygmy Cories. Heh.

I've been trying to get my hands on some pygmies. Is the PFS too sharp for them, though?

PFS is what a lot of Cories are kept in.

With pygmies, the Wet Spot here in Portland has them. I'm thinking about a dozen in my Mini S. They ship too, they're 10 for $18
