Week 19 Update

Well, I finally have my own camera! A Canon 60D with a Sigma 17-70mm Macro to be exact.
I actually only have a few photos of my tank, from the morning when the sun was shining in. I'll get some more good ones later, but for now, I thought I should at least have some new photos up.
Enjoy!

I hate your tank... I hate it because it is awesome. Really nice carpet and those stones are just amazing. Wish I could find stones like that.

That's a bad attitude! It's not a competition, so no one needs to feel threatened or belittled by others success. If others are successful, it's only to your advantage, because you can admire them and learn from them. That's what I think anyways.
Thank's for the compliments though! I bought my stones right from AFA.

Great tank and very inspirational! I unfortunately have Spiro in my shrimp tank. I want to try the algaefix method you used after I remove the shrimp. Are there special instructions you used to rid your Spiro?

Lots of hand removal! Other than that, along with algaefix, just time I guess. I didn't necessarily do anything special.

Amazing journal with an amazing setup! I'm planning on getting the 45-f tank as well and start up my first planted aquarium. I'm currently in the process of purchasing all the necessary parts for the tank and I noticed that I'll be doing the same setup (in terms of setting up the filter and CO2 in the IKEA bookshelf). Out of curiosity, what size CO2 tank are you using for this setup and how long does it last?

It's great. Haven't had any problems. once you get it locked in it's solid.

Wow that's really cool to hear. Can't wait to see it. I'm using an Atomic Nano V2, which is GLA's nano system that has a solenoid. I really love it because it looks like it fits nicely under the tank in the shelf. It's been lasting me 2 months at least on one tank, so I get good mileage out of it.

No it's a 92 gram disposable cartridge. The paintball canisters would probably fit but I like how small this is. BPS is around 0.3 or 0.4.

I was a compliment! Hate is the modern day compliment LOL. If someone is hating, it prob because they are jealous. Which is what I was jokingly saying LOL.

ADA tanks, while ridiculously expensive, are amazing. And you have done a great job.

What is AFA?
