Did some work on my 2.5

Got my light in today (huge thanks to Sugardaddy1979), and since it's designed for a rimless tank, I had some work to do.



I had some seeded filter media sitting in there in the first pic, and the huge red wendtii crypt dead center in the tank is in quarantine before going into the big tank...might leave some of it in there, I'm thinking I like it being a primarily crypt setup. My daughter loves it; it's kind of the centerpiece in her room now. Next project is my 40B, which will be a riparium setup (huge thanks also to hydrophyte for the RAOK!).

I haven't had much luck with crypts in my 2.5 gallon since the conditions change a lot in mine; changes in temp and water parameters since the water volume is so small. They are constantly melting, but they do fine in my bigger 55 gallon. I'm not saying it can't be done but keep that in mind by working hard to keep the parameters as constant as possible.
