I've got two Fluval Chi 5 gallon tanks. One started 1.5 years ago, and a new one tonight. I'm going to share photos of both, in various stages. On to the pictures.
grew up a bit, and got a sword plant from PetSmart, as well as a few other changes.
changed to a hanging cfl in a work light, and things started looking pretty good.
Here's how that tank sits currently. The moss ball, and the argentine swords are doing well, but i've got a good amount of algae going. I've changed photo periods, and have been more aggressive with water changes, and it's starting to clear up a bit.
...and then, I found a deal for a second Chi at PetSmart for 49 dollars, and picked it up. I got bored one weekend, and built a light tower for it out of balsawood from Michaels.
here you can see what I intended on doing with it....even tho I never really used it.
I made a DIY here: DIY - Fluval Chi hood / CFL stand
So I've since gotten rid of that lid, and here I am, trying a DSM with dwarf hairgrass.
That's all I've got so far. Cheers.
