Benji's Rimless Desktop Tank

Had a diatom outbreak but I cleaned it up a bit. Please excuse the diatoms that are left.



Bit of a new angle

Added some Amanos, hoping they clear up the rest of the diatoms.

Blyxa and MU, whoever can spot the Amano in there first gets a prize!

This tank uses the LFS' RODI water which the shrimp tank there uses, so I just punctured a hole in the plastic bag they were in and let them sit for a couple of minutes, then dumped them in.

But here's a little preview I made for this tank, sorry for the low quality, it's my first "pro" video.

I think you mean a WiFive.

People are too often merely stating an assumed truth from flawed observation.

Well, I rescaped. I went on vacation and most of the plants died and there was hair algae everywhere. So now its really low-tech, only sand and LEDs, maybe later I'll put in some Java Fern and Anubias.
