This is the first time I am working with a tank this small, but the great thing is that due to its size, a lot of addition equipment is a lot cheaper like the lighting.
. Anyhow it's been a while since I've posted anything on this site. So here it is.
First off everyone knows this is the Fluval EBi, I got one heck of a deal on it form a LFS, for a whopping $80 out the door.
As you all know, it comes with a decent set of toys. But the light fixture and filter has to go.
Here it is in all it's glory, with a nice 3D background in all, too bad its comin off.
All I had was a dull razor blade and it took me a very long time paired with some serious elbow grease to get this silicone off.
Plant of choice is the infamous HC. Baby tears.
Planting done, and testing out the light to see if I like it. I think the light is nice, but I am going to go with something else.
Now the hard part was the hardscape, it was tough finding some rocks that I really liked. Seiryu stones were my first choice but I could not find a package which made me happy. So while walking through a LFS I stumbled upon the dreaded Pagoda Stones. I have always hated these things because they were hideous. But right away I was able to find a few very nice pieces which did not even resemble pagoda stones.
So here it is, as it sits until the HC fills in. Excuse the paper background, its sitting on my desk in my bedroom.
For lighting I will be using the praised 10W LED Floodlight, and heating is powered but a Hydor 200W inline heater.
