Hey shift, can you give us an update on your tanks? Your fluval chi is what I'm interested in. What light are you using? Also how is the growth on the bottom of your tank? Any luck w the shrimp breeding?

It's flora max. It's alright, not that great to plant in. It feels kind of like crumbled up lava rock. I have it in a nano paludarium capped with sand. Works pretty well there too.

I noticed that a ton of people took off the filter and light that came with, I really like the look as in the shape, but don't know if just the tank alone is worth the price? I assume probably best to scour for a used one and put better lights in from there.

I bought my Chi of Craigslist for 20 bucks and removed all the filter and light crap. Looks much better now.
