Co2: Aquatek Basic co2 regulator w/paintball adapter
Substrate: Ada Aquasoil
Rocks: Don't know the name
Light: 16" Finnex Ray II

I will post pictures as soon as I get my plants in and everything set up.

Bought some more aquasoil and might make the slope a little higher.

Got it locally at a landscaping place for only a dollar a pound. I might pick up some more on my day off and add it to the tank

I don't know the real term for the stones but the landscaping place sold them as bowl rocks. My lfs has the same rocks labeled as China rocks or something and sells them for 3.99 a pound.

Heres an update:

1 ray2 wasn't really bright enough for the tank so I ended up getting another fugeray. The hairgrass is growing really slow in this tank, looks almost the same as the first day planted-_- So now I just have to wait for this tank to fill up with the new light.

Changed the scape due to the belem dying on me






I rescaped it so now the hairgrass is closer to the light and hopefully this tank will be low maintenance.

Is that rock inert/did you do a vinegar test? $1/lb is a steal!
