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