That looks great! I remember this tank from last spring.
Nice tank. How many bags of aquasoil did it take to fill the 25g?
I'm pretty sure it was just the majority of one of the ADA 30# bags, but it may have been bigger as I also used it to fill a couple planted betta tanks since. It's whatever their standard size is for the Amazonia.
Are those Sulawesi shrimp in there with your rainbows? If it is that will end up turning into an expensive meal for your fish.
Yup! The bigger rainbow committed suicide just after adding them, and the smaller one (female) is too docile to eat them. Have had two jump, but the rest are doing OK so far. Will see what happens. The cherry shrimp have multiplied like mad, counted 26 babies last time plus the couple grown ones.
Wow that kessills doing good for your HC. Whats the measurement from the light to the substrate? Im wanting to try these on a 120g build and was wondering.
It's an 18" tank so assuming about 22" from light to substrate. They have taken off, I was shocked.

They make three different designs, but the one I have (F2) definitely needs to be above the water to stir the surface and get the scum down to the filter. It does make it somewhat sensitive to water level on an open top tank (due to evap and water level change) but this tank still makes it several days before needing a topoff. The pipes themselves are insane build quality, beautifully packaged, and work like a charm. Never had a second guess about the money they cost.
