Been thinking about another tank for a while. My 2.5 I have decided is cursed, plus I never liked it from the beginnning, wife picked it out. So I picked up a Mr. Aqua 7.5 gal. Cube to replace the 2.5. The tank is a little bigger than I thought it would be, but I'm happy it is. It is a good looking tank, there is some slight offsets in the heights of the side panes, but there are small enough I couldn't capture them with my camera.
Plans are MTS capped with CaribSea - Peace River. Been slowly working on some MTS, winter and keeping it in my garage is making it a slow process. Plan on using some petrified wood I have as the hardscape. Going to try and use cholla wood to hide the filter intake and other equipment.
I am trying to decide between an Archeae 27W Clip on and Catalina Compact Lighthouse 26W, 12-inch.
I plan on filling it with crypts, nothing fancy. I am still learning and am scared to death to get a pricey plant and kill it. I am trying to come up with a nutrient sponge plant to out compete algae. Thinking Rotala Rotundifolia so I can get a little red mixed in. Anyone have suggestions? Also will throw in a couple Anubias.
Probably will be a month before I put it together, going to wait for temps to come up before ordering plants for it, but I was really excited to see it when I got home yesterday.
