AP...great job. I know how small those maculata are, so to look at the full tank shot, it looks like a mini 90 gal! The scale is very nice...not an easy feat.
The HC loves that environmant to boot. I love the fauna too.

Excellent tanks

I had a question for you - how were you using the CO2 in the 2.1 gal Nano tank? I'm confused how that worked and what equipment you used.

In the left "pocket" i had a 500ml bottle with DIY yeast CO2 - with a co2-line going in under the powerhead from the filter making it a mister.

The 14gal is undergoing some seriuos aquascaping and is currently looking like this:

Anti-Pjerrot, I have to say you really are an artist. I am amazed at how quickly you can create a masterpiece, just tear it down, and magically create a new one. I have absolutely no eye for aquascaping. From the moment I first put a plant into an aquatic substrate, I have never gotten good at it (I haven't really tried for a while I admit, but I definitely don't have an eye for it).

I, as well as many others here, are eagerly awaiting your updates. And if you have any aquascaping tips/rules of thumb for the not-so-great aquaplant artists, I'd appreciate it.
