thanks kman. using pieces of the main filter sponge is a great idea and I wish I had thought of that sooner.

Tanks are looking really good! Proud to say I just picked up my Spec V earlier this week. I'm pretty excited and have been lurking these forums 24/7. I'll post pics as soon as anything gets put into the tank (probably going to use the DSM). Thanks to all for the inspiration and information.

What's the name of the plant that has slim leaves and is planted in the right corner?

Thanks!

I wanted to do a java moss wall for a while, so here's how it looks. I'll post an update in a few weeks if everything goes well!

^^ Nifty! I look forward to seeing if that does well with just the stock LED light. I'm totally stealing the idea, if it does!

That wall will make a nice background! You'll need some tall rocks or wood to break up all the green if it does.
