- Wow this tank made you want the Finnex? That's....well that's awesome! Thanks very much. In answer to your question I'm using Amazonia substrate. It's what they happened to have at the LFS when I got it, and so far it's served me well.
DIY Co2 is definitely cheaper than paintball to start with, but as a personal preference I don't like mixing yeast solutions. I like the consistency of pressurized so I always recommend the paintball option. You can get into it for about $150 total. That's for a paintball cylinder, diffuser, tubing and a cheap regulator with built-in solenoid.
Thanks a lot dude. You're right about them growing fast. I have to trim and replant every week, but it's therapudic. These last two posts made me kind of laugh. Here you have one guy who says that my Finnex inspired him to get a tank. Then, the very next post, you have the guy (well one of them, between you and Craigthor) who inspired ME to get a tank. I just think that's hella cool that they were in that order.
That moss/MP on the wood looks even better now that it's grown in. I'd love to see it on a jagged landscape like you described. Sounds awesome.
More pictures since I had the camera with me yesterday. Oh, and I got some close-ups of a pregnant Amano for you VincentK
, if you happen to read this. Nothing has really changed. Added some Fissidens but that's about it. It's fun experimenting with what type of shots I can get in such a small tank.
