Sadly its been overrun by guppy grass and duck weed, and my neglect due to a new lady friend.

But its just fluval shrimp substrate and a CF bulb i had laying around in a swing arm lamp. I think its 6500K.

I have a pump going from the 38 to the 2.5. Since the 2.5 is slightly higher than my 38, water flows back down to the 38 from a mini overflow i built. Hope that helps.

Bluek24a4 Big fan of that little scape. I also kinda like the green on the rocks. Speaking of which, what kind of rocks are those?

kwheeler91 Looks good. Love the use of the pepsi can as pump stand
Personally I like a little algae growing on rocks and wood, gives it a natural look.

Wicket_lfe Its gotten overgrown with guppy grass, random moss and duck weed. All from the random shrimp packages I've received. I really need to clean it up, but the DHG is growing well. lol

binako This looks great! Any updates on this? What kind of plant/moss is that in the front?

I made a little overflow box from a specimen container, with a sponge to trap any shrimp that get sucked in.

Here is the 2.5 gal

Here is the placement of the pump and the overflow box
