cyfan964's 2.5 gallon nano

Whelp I've officially bit the bullet and am starting a 2.5 gallon nano. I spent about 1.5 hours yesterday making the tank rimless and cleaning up the silicone. I ran a water test last night and... SUCCESS!! No leaks.

I am going to be using ADA Amazonia powder for substrate with a small Hydor heater and a Red Sea nano HOB filter. Lighting is 27W CF daylight and I plan on using DIY CO2.

I plan on having a carpet of some mini-pellia, downoi for midground, and Red Crypts for background.... with some moss covered Manzanita somewhere in the middle coming out of the surface of the water.

I plan on stocking with 6-7 RCS.

I am currently in the process of painting the back pane black... I'll post more pictures when that is done.
