Ok so this is my first attempt at a dsm and iwagumi style tank. So life for this tank started about two months ago when I seen a fluval chi for sale at my lfs for $10 it was missing the light and filter and was just the rimless tank. So i bought it and it sat in the closet for two months why i tried to figure out what to do with it. On 4/21/13 I finally setup the had scape and planted all the glosso. And we will see where it goes from here. I still need to get a filter for this tank any suggestions?
Tank: fluval chi 5g
Substrate: safety sorb
Hardscape: dove grey stone from local stone yard
Lighting: 23w cfl 6500k
Fauna: eventually shrimp
tank as of 4/21/13
tank as of 4/25/13 add a rock and slopped substrate a little more add some more glosso from my main tank
quick update glosso is starting to spread nicely really cant wait for it to completely carpet. i refuse to fill it till i get a thick carpet so i have a good looking tank from the day i fill. I still need a suggestion for a filter for this and what shrimp should i get i have pfrs in my 20 looking for a different neo for this tank
Update glosso is really starting to spread seeing a ton of new growth its been almost 2 weeks now probably will be another 4 weeks before I fill because i think we are gonna be moving and i really want this to get a good carpet before it is filled
I really was tempted to fill it today because i wanna rescape my 20g but i resisted the urge. I did re arrange the rocks in the front i was afraid the glosso would over take them. In the process i did mess up some of the glosso but oh well it will grow back.
