I posted this journal on the nano tank section, but then found this section so I did not know if I should move it or what, so I am posting this here instead of there lol. So, I will just copy and paste what I had on the other thread...
Figured I should start a thread on here on my rimless 6g build, I have a thread on another forum that has it from the beginning, I wish I could link it but I can't. I will pretty much start this in a nut case. From first decided scape to what it is currently, it is currently using DSM (dry start method) and has been for about 4 weeks now. It has a Finnex Ray II light and will have a Fluval 106. I have all of the galssware (NAG-Aqua "Music Note" diffuser, Cal Aqua Labs 13mm glass lily pipes, and Cal Aqua Labs nano drop checker) already in the tank. I will be using a 2-way manifold splitter to split the CO2 tank with my 60g and this tank once I flood it. I have ADA AquaSoil Amazonia Poweder Type as my substrate, and a white sand "riverbed" through the center. I am using some Yamaya stone and Manten stone I got from ADG and AFA, says they are ADA stones...flora is just HC and DHG Belem - I got both plants from TPT member nilocg - awesome plants man! Once I flood the tank I will stock it with some Painted Fire Red shrimp from the colony I am starting - also got these shrimps from seller rostick555 - great shrimp! I have the 106 currently on my shrimp tank, getting it cycled before I flood the tank. I plan to flood it on the 8 week mark, and at the rate the plants are growing that should work out very well. Will dose PPS-Pro ferts as I am with all my planted tanks, and thats about it I think! So, starting now I will start updating this thread too, so I hope you all enjoy
Very first scape ideas...
I thought I had finally decided on this one below, until my dog ate and hid the DW from me
So I ordered the Yamaya and Manten stone and made this scape!

I got the plants, and planted it. Here is Day 1
And now to day 33. (took this pic on day 29 but not much has changed)
I like where it is going. I do have an issue though, I have been seeing these little tiny crawly bugs in there and some gnats, but I am concerned mostly about the little bugs...here is a pic of them. they are the tiny white dots - a fraction of the size of a single HC leaf so they are tiny!! I circled them
Does anyone know what these are and if they are a harm to my tank, and how I can get rid of them? Thanks guys! Dan
Here are some updated pics (Day 38)
