Added the rocks minus the HUGE rock that I'm scared will tip over. For instance, once wet, how can Aqua Soil support such a massive Ryuoh rock? I want it on an angle like what Amano does but I'm not sure how? Does he just will it into place with a stern look, follow by the equivalent of "rocks do not move" in japanese?
I'm also a bit worried that the middle rock will contrast once wet, it was a bit dark under the water. I got all the rocks (minus the big one) from the same source.
I also got some clear tubing for the Eheim 2215 but can't bare to use their Out/In pipes. Green must be a mighty popular colour in Germany. Speaking of Germany quality made products, the Eheim are made in China. When did this happen? Regardless of the fact, the filter felt extremely well crafted. Maybe they just sent a bunch of Germans to Chinese factories.
Good looks at a reasonable price. I like how you can see all your high tech equipment without opening the door. I hope the lights are enough for whatever you're planning to grow? Where did you get them?
I got the lights at Ikea for 10 dollars each, I'm trying to grow some HC Cuba carpet and maybe DHG too. I filled the tank with water already so I'll snap some shots of the rocks again. It's not that small, in my opinion, you get a sense of a larger of scape with smaller rocks. Besides, any bigger and I'm scared my clumsy hands made tip it over.
I left the Co2 running at around 3 - 4 bps near the output, some of the HC is pearling but at a slow pace. I got a mix of top grown and submerged HC, going to test which gives me a better result if Co2 is not limiting.
