Beautiful tank. Subscribed.
The AQUASKY looks great, can't wait for the new larger ones to come out next month.

Nano tanks are awesome.

Great tanks, good job. I was wondering how your dwarf puffer does with your shrimp and cpds? Do you just have the one puffer?

Sorry for the late reply, the puffer does very well with the cpds, but he has become more aggressive towards shrimp as he got older. He has been biting the shrimps heads off if hes not fed twice a day lol.

My tank is looking pretty neglected because Ive been dealing with setting up a 50 gallon SW reef tank which was a total headache and everything went wrong at first it seemed. I have to get my Mini M back into shape because it looks terrible and I dont even want to post updated pics, but I will anyways. Also heres a pic of my SW tank

He lives! Sorry you've been having such a rough time though. I've had my fair share of crap too.

Been there, done that. :/ I'd consult with Frank first. He's been helping me through the ups and down of my Mini.

Certain aspects of the M are perfect. Just bring the rest back to par and you're golden. If you ask me, restart the carpet. That stem bush in the back right is brilliant.

My dad's in SF right now, I had him pick up a Do!Aqua 20C for me. Can't wait! How's yours doing?

I ripped out all the the carpet and trimmed everything back, just gotta get some new glosso to fill the bottom of the tank.

Mines doing just fine, Im considering doing a rescape. Ill post some pics tomorrow, I really love that tank though such a great size.

It really is an underrated size. Did you see my 20-C's journal?

I decided to do something with less maintence, moss only tank. Here is the start of the scape I only have one piece of flame moss. Im planning on putting more flame moss around the back of the rocks, X-mas moss down the side of the cliff or Mini pellia and then Fissidens on the for ground.

Simple goodness of sand, rock and moss. Never a bad choice. What fish are those?
