-Forest Grove ADA 60-P & 45-F

6/25/14 Update
Recent FTS pg. 2

Yes, yes I know another 60-P. I swear they are breeding like rabbits right now, but this is my third go at it. I plan to fill it sometime during the winter holidays.

I made a time lapse of scaping and planting.

Not much of an update for the 60p but I got a 45f. I want to do a low maintenance iwagumi and have it in my built in cabinet. It will probably be a few months before I do anything with it, but I have the light, filter, heater, and plants already. We will need to modify the cabinet a bit to fit it. I am also thinking to have it be shrimp only, no CO2 and hopefully a lot less work than the 60P.

Nope, no pics. It looks the same as last week, and there has been a blip with getting my reactor shipped so it's not filled yet.

I finally ordered the parts needed for the reactor, and maybe I'll fill it soon. I must say, I'm enjoying this low maintenance thing. I also did a quick photoshop job to illustrate better the scape and location for the 45-F.
