This pic is lighter than the others, so you can see more constrast. I think the first one's look good, but the wood gets lost in the black background (might be photo only not in person). I think this setup with the add'l plants would have been really good if we saw some of the wood in the middle and lower areas, but overall very nice.
Is the bolbitus in there? That's a tough plant to use in a small space. I used it a couple of times in my Mini S (3.5G), but it was tough to make it work.
Yeah, when I was the newer pics I had different camera settings and was just messing around trying not to overexpose a ton because of the freshly washed super white sand.
The bolbitus was placed in the very back middle. Very hard to see as it is the darkest toned plant.
Sweet tank! I've only used Finnex lights way higher above the substrate. At issues with algae at all? I tried leaving it on top of tank like everybody else but I think it's too high light without CO2! What do you think?
