They're Red Sea Nano filters, as mentioned in the first post.

Nearly identical to Azoo Palm.

Cubes are clearing up:



Had to lower the water level because the clips of the light fixtures were creating a siphon and causing water to drip down the back of the tanks. Gonna have to figure a way around that mess.

Really enjoying the beginnings of this tank:





Not so much a fan of this one yet:



Needs something while I wait for the moss to develop. Anubias? Small Crypts? Something.

nice.. im feeling the double cubes! i feel like these small nano cubes haven't been really explored in terms of scaping yet. so many possibilities.

what are you using for the foam thing underneath the tanks? did it come with the purchase?

Using squares of foam that came with it coupled with an extra layer of foam liner.

Tossed in another piece of wood with Christmas Moss on it for the time being:



Just couldn't stand all the emptiness.

Those probably wouldn't look horrible...
Hey Jake I use the Wavepoint 16 watt on my 12 gallon, and I love it.
Plants are thriving. Also it gives a really nice shimmering affect.
My 2 penny's. Hope it helps,

Glad to hear it.

Think I'm leaning toward the small units for these little cubes as soon as my hobby budget allows.

Added a couple baby Crypts:




They tagged along with some larger ones I purchased today for the 45-F.

After a bit of tank maintenance last night:




Love the first, don't hate the second.

Re: Jake's 20cm High-Clarity Shrimp Cubes

Looking great! Love these little cubes! I'm curious to see how Aquatop's larger high clarity tanks are. Too bad they don't ship. Anyway, what are your plans on the 45-F? We just got the 60-F so it seems we have similar taste.
