roybot73. 4 Gallon Finnex #2.1

Uh-oh. I've been sitting on this setup for a while, and well... what's that saying about 'Idle hands'?

The wife doesn't know about this one yet

4 gallon Finnex
27W 10000K Archaea PC
Zoo Med 501
Marineland 10W Mini heater
PowerMen ebay 10mm Lily knock-offs
ADA pollen Glass
ADA bubble counter
DIY CO2

Tourmaline BC
Bacter 100
Aquisoil™ Amazonia
Green Brighty Step 1
Brighty K

Not quite sure about the scape yet, but I've got lots of sweet self-found rocks, and tons of Manzanita branches. We'll see what happens

Muahahaha. Nice man! Good luck with the wifey, looks like it would make a nice christmas gift for her. Looking forward to seeing it come along as you're definitely honing in your aquascaping skills with each setup.

It looks nothing like this now... It's a moss choked swamp! Maybe I'll dig into it later today

Quality is good -- a little short on the outflow, so you have to make sure the water level is topped off.

If I were you, I'd go with at least a 2213 on a 45-P. A ZooMed would quite cut it...

No problem! Just use the stock in & out with the ZooMed until you can get the 2213 -- no sense in buying temporary glassware. Get the 13mm PowerMen in & out for your 2213! That's planning ahead
