Well, decided to finally spend the money and get started the right way. Finally got an RODI system and a proper water conditioner.
Standard 20G Long
2x Tetra Air Pumps
2x Double-head sponge filters
Hydro Sponge Filter
Sunsun 302 Canister Filter
DIY CFL Bulb Fixture (saving up for a Finnex Fugeray)
I think Mini Rose moss
Clump mix of java, x-mas, taiwan, and willow moss
Soon to be S-SS CRS
Possibly some type of Neo, leaning on Blue Diamonds for contrast against the red/white.
Indian Almond Leaves
Driftwood w/ moss
Pyrex Feeding dish
Got my RODI system for $68 shipped from purewaterclub and am using Salty Shrimp GH+.
Gonna wipe down the hard water stains on the back-glass and get a black background. Waiting for some SS mesh from Han to get that huge clump of ugly in the center more organized.
Thought I should start a log of my water parameters, too:
Now here's an overly edited picture from my phone. lol
