3 month update to my 6 gallon edge (pics and vid)

I made a quick video to show my progress on my tank. I also decided I wanted to keep a magnifying glass out to be able to see the shrimp and fine details of the tank. but the problem I had was any reasonably priced glass was cheap plastic and ugly. so I made my own out of the same wood I collected for my hard-scape for the tank. I think it displays nicely with the tank and the best part is it is a functioning tool that blends in with the theme of the tank.


Here is the video (I hope it loads)

Ok so not sure if that's going to work so here is the link

Yes I'm using diy co2. The air line run in the top right corner is how I have had it the last month. I just let it collect in one big pocket in the corner. But I ordered a diffuser so I will be installing that soon. I hope it makes for more growth

Yes I added a 10 watt compact florescent light and a 16" finnex fugeray light bar. I actually just upgraded the finnex to a Ray II for a higher intensity light.
