Here is my edge so far: Lighting:
Upgraded LED lights
Ikea LACK lights See Detail Picture Plant list:
cryptocoryne willisii x3
Anubias nana x1
Java moss all over Otherstuff:
Java moss "wall" in the left corner (just placed, needs to fill in)
seachem flourite red substrate, with seachem flourish Livestock:
Nothing yet, still cycling
I plan on adding maybe another anubias nana in the right corner, and also the additional light under the hood. As far as livestock, i plan on adding some cherry red shrimp, about 5 galaxy rasbora (celestial pearl danio is the new name) and an otocinclus. I also hope to add the in-filter heater and reduce the length of the filter "snorkel" to get a cleaner look.
I have learned that long tweezers come in handy for placement, the branches were soaked for 2 weeks prior to placing them in the tank to eliminate tannins, but made them a bit more flexy to fit through the tiny hole. I also have a feeling that my lack of access to the glass will be a bit of a problem in a few weeks when algae starts showing up.
