12" cube Mr. Aqua

Got an idea.



Had a few clippings.




Bought a few more.






And later added some shrimp.

Thanks for the kind words. The driftwood is from the Mississippi. Given enough walks along the river one can pick up a lot of fantastic pieces, even within the city.

Re: 12" cube Mr. Aqua

Does the LED bulb bother you when sitting in the room? I have a single cfl over my 12" cube in my living room and I must admit it's a bit annoying as the bulb isn't recessed enough. I was debating doing a PAR30/38 bulb like yours or getting a fugeray

Thanks. There's about a dozen Crystal Red shrimp in there now with 2 Amano's. The Hydrocotyl 'Japan' is growing really fast, almost needs trimmed already under the LEDs.

That's one cool way to weigh down / sink some new driftwood. Looks great!
Send me some of your trimmings!!

$20 shipped. PAR 38, 6000K. I use them on all my terrariums/planted aquariums and even for full sun burst on my marine enclosure.
