Is this the same tank as vincenz's "Spawning Pool"?

I love the dimensions, and the 'scape is nice.

Quick pics from today. Definitely seeing some growth. I've replaced the dwarf sags with blyxa and I also took out some crypt parva (replaced with stauro).

Some changes to the tank over the last 3 weeks. I decided to switch over to LEDs and get rid of the best lights that I have used (ATI Dimmable). Reason for the change is that the ATI lights were a bit too powerful and I did not utilize them to the full potential. Instead, I picked up the Finnex Planted+ fixtures that sit on top of the tank. Decided to go with three 36 inch set ups. Not sure whether I like it yet since the tank looks totally different with lights sitting directly on top instead of hanging like it was before. At the same time a large piece of driftwood was taken out since I needed more space for plants. To be honest this thing sort of runs itself and I barely pay attention to it. Only time when I do anything is the daily fertilization which takes 2 seconds and the weekly 50% water change.

Quick pics...still waiting for everything to grow in before I take really nice closeups. The water looks murky but it's really all the pearling happening after the water change.

Beautiful and filling in very nice. I envy you and Don with these big cube tanks. Great dimensions and wish I had a place to put one.

Video (make sure to change to HD)



Some fisheye pics to show the whole room and how the tank is situated (ps. Don't mind my Home Depot curtains...everyone gives me crap about them already...I purchased them to make a point with someone so it's an inside joke).

Tank has been sold to a member here....I am sure he's going to get it up and running soon. It has been a fun journey.
