Long time reader, first time poster.
I've had a desire for a long time to do a rimless tank, I've been slowly collecting some parts and finally have a few nice slabs of glass and an led light that makes me feel like I can play with the big boys.
I'm facing a first time challenge on this tank for me, it needs to look good from two sides, a front facing side, and the side facing my bed.
Before this tank gets wet, I'd like a pressurized CO2 setup, (A first for me, I've only ever done DIY before)
A hopeful change will be to switch out the little corner filter for a Eheim 2213 with if money allows, stainless steel lilly pipes. The less equipment in this tank the better. Aqua Soil Amazonia Powder will eventually be added to the tank,
I think UG may be the only plant in this tank.
I'm really wanting to have a serious go at shrimp.
(But who really knows how this will end up.. I sure don't)
Here is the scape from the front (the less important side to me)
Here is the side I'll see from my bed, and the side I favour in the scape,
Things to "do"... purchase
