So I want to learn more about aquascaping and wanted to have a new tank for new year 2014...It took me a few months to gather everything needed and thought about what I'm going to do with this tank (a 30 gallon cube). Special thank to my brother (Riversun) who gave me the idea and helps me with the scape, and also local friends who supported me to put up this tank on the forum.
It's been more than 2 months since I got this tank running. I moved things around and played with the scape very often. So the tank is still new and need more suggestions to make it looks better and better.
Rimless 30 gallon deep blue cube (24x24x12H in)
4x24W T5HO lighting fixture (3 white (10000K) and 1 pink)
Pressured CO2 system
Canister filter and sponge filter
Heater (temp is around 72F)
2 bags of 9L Aquasoil
1 bag of 2L Power Sand Special S
