First, here is the very slight difference with the blue on vs. off, then just the blue

Blue and white


White only


Blue only


I do also have white LEDs projecting onto the white background which is evident in the blue only pic, that may influence the color slightly, but for the two pics, same settings, just blue on vs. blue off

Here are a few more pics, HC is hanging in there, the Co2 will help with that, but I have to wait for drop checkers as well so I don't suffocate my shrimp

Fred still likes the pagoda

And I'm still liking Fred in the pagoda

Getting a little more jungley, bought some new dwarf sag that had wider leaves and looked in better shape, I moved the java moss to between the rocks, so with a lot of trimming, hopefully I can get it bushy down there. Eventually there will be Co2 but until then the drop checker will stay blue and the HC carpet will probably just stay the same, some small growth, but not nearly what it could be.

HC doing its thing... Slowly, good roots though


And Fred looking at himself

Looking good. Fred isn't bothering any of the other inhabitants at all?

Hehe, he acts like a cat... Sulking around and sleeping a lot... He is getting old... 2 years now, nope, never bothers anyone, he did follow a tiny shrimp the other day and I was worried, but he lost interest quickly... I am sure he is keeping the shrimp population smaller than it could be though.... Tiny Shrimp are hard to resist

Damn, I really wish my local meijer had this tank. How much was it? If the price is right I might have to start driving to all the ones in my area.

I've been meaning to ask too, no Meijers this far down south... but is that the acrylic SeaClear line they carry? Didn't know there was a 5g.

This is actually all Glass!, it was $30 but I think totally worth it, the silicone on the back half and bottom is top notch... I could never find the manufacturer... I dont know who supplies them, and I have never seen them on their website either, they have a 4 and a 5 gallon version... both have a half acrylic top that I didnt use and a cheapy in tank filter I still have in the box as well... I think I got really lucky with it
