When I first started planted tank back in college, I remember visiting this site almost on an hourly basis. After graduating, I have to drop the hobby completely due to the numerous moves and job changes.
Recently, I was bit hard by the fish bug after visiting Aqua Forest in SF. I started going over all the tank journal on this site and realized that there's a whole new line of tanks from Mr. Aqua. Finally, I can get the looks of rimless tanks without selling my kidney. It turned out that a lfs was doing a pre-order for Mr. Aqua tanks, and I immediately jumped the gun on a 12 gallon long. 3 weeks later, I have yet to receive my tank. So I went online and order a 7.5 gallon cube to relieve my urge to tank. It arrived 3 days later, and now I am finally able to start a journal of my own.
Tank: Mr. Aqua 7.5 gal cube
Light: Mr. Aqua (Hidoli) clip on led
Substrate: ADA Amazonia
Plants: Dwarf Hairgrass, Subwassertang , Anubias nana - gold
Fauna: Probably shrimp?
The tank was packaged really well, there was no chance it would've break.
Mr. Aqua clip on Led
The light has 9 white led and 3 blue. Not sure if I like this light...it's definitely thin, but wish it was made without the blue leds. It gives out almost a purple color when viewed in person. Might be a good think for red color fish/shrimp??
The piece laying down actually has a lot of characters (holes of various shape and sizes), it would be a find hide out spot for shrimp in the future.
Decided to go with dry start, first time for me. Eventually, I want to turn the Subwassertang into a mini bush and probably have some stem plants on the rear right corner.
Thanks for looking!
