Why people like to have DSM? I always fail at DSM and always get a very nice grow with flooded tank. LOL if you got CO2 just flood your tank and let it grow.



Please forgive me for my grammar mistakes!

Tanks are looking good. I don't think that is dwarf hair grass. It looks like E. Belem hair grass. Got any closer pics?

40 Breeder in progress...

Sorry for the delay!

The Mini L,





Bought 2 nano tanks today from a LFS (Wetspot Portland, OR), 4g cube & 3.5g (mini s style). Super cheap $$ (i couldn't resist , great quality, low iron and high clarity!



Prices at my LFS were lil cheaper compared to online. For those who are interested,

2. http://www.truaqua.com/aquarium-high...be-hcc-10.html

Sorry for the bad pics, using an iphone 5 / editing via instagram (follow www.instagram.com/daizor ^^)

Great tanks - and great new (cheap) tanks.

I'm looking forward to reading about your experience with those Tru Aqua/AquaTop high-clarity tanks, as there seems to be little information on our forum about them at the moment.

Looking forward to seeing layout photos for your new cube.

Your Mini L is going to be awesome once the carpet grows in.
