Nice, that HC is really starting to fill in well!

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

The glass U I got off ebay from some store in Hong Kong. I don't sell the lily pipes but there is someone on here that does. I want to say its onefang or something like that.

Just did my first trim. Still battling diatoms but it seems like they are getting better. They weren't as noticeable before the trim. I also added about 15 red cherry shrimp a week or so ago. A few decided to try and hang out under the HC which made it start coming up . I fixed that today when I trimmed.

Nice! Good to see your HC lush and fighting back those diatoms. Where are the RCS's in that shot?

Thanks! The Micro Swords have really shot up and the HC is definitly looking better but still needs improvement. I ended up taking them out because I cleaned my filter today and there were 6 of them that had been sucked in there (still alive). I might just get rid of them because my other 5 gallon has supreme reds and CRS and my 20 Long hasn't finished cycling.

Wow great job man. Your stand looks amazing. Where do you get the pipe to hold the lights? Does it come bent?

Keep your sleeves wet!

Thanks! Will look even better once I get those rocks the pipe is electrical conduit that was bent with a pipe bender. It was then drilled so the power cord for the light runs up the wire, through the conduit and plugs into the back of the stand.

Well this tank has officially been torn down but I'm currently in the process of redoing it. Will post a link to the new setup once I get everything together. Micro swords are currently for sale in the for sale/ trade section.
