In part due to the difficulty of its dimensions, and the need to upgrade the lighting. The dwarf hair grass is not doing too well in the back, so I may need to get a better light if I decide to keep this tank.



Its extremely hard to scape as I've now been told, that the dimensions do not allow for a perfect 'rule of thirds'.

My advice is if you really want to get into aquascaping, do not buy this tank, but go for one of the more expensive cubes.



My favourite view is always on the side of the tank.



Currently, it has the stock light and a short Fluval light in the front, attached to the plastic divider.

There are about 15 mosquito rasboras, 3 shrimp and 5 tetras.

Substrate is Fluval.

Tropica canister CO2


Nice. How do you keep everything suspended upside down

Substrate: MTS with Fluval Plant and Shrimp Stratum cap
Lighting: Stock (Put a screen over it as it was giving me hair/thread algae and since then have not seen it come back)
Photo-period: 7 hours
Co2: None
Filter: Stock Sponge with Seachem Matrix Bio Media and Purigen
Ferts: Thrive all in one (Bought @ NilocG)
Scape: Ohko Stone (Bought @ Buceplant)
Fauna: Neocaridina davidi var Yellow and Amano Shrimp
Plants: Monte Carlo (Bought here) and Bucephalandra Little Red Star (Bought @ Buceplant)

Up and running for a month now. Only planned on using the Monte Carlo but for some reason got the buce as well. Wasn't sure what to do with it so I stuck it where it is right now.

This Is Marley, my black orchid betta and his home. I'm thinking of trying a carpet plant in this scape. Anyone grow any with the stock light(I believe it to be the newer brighter model)?

O I c. Have you thought of putting up window frosting on the back glass? I'm thinking of doing it to mine. It give a translucent feel while hiding background objects.

I don't mind seeing it through the tank! And the tank will move in the next few months anyway so it's not a big deal to me
