Having ammonia and cycling issues
Hopefully have it sorted out today

Finally got everything planted last night after 6 hours of playing with anubias petite, moss and thread
Pretty happy with the results, now to figure out a lighting schedule, dosing, finish the cycling, and get a C02 setup going.
Will have pictures later

Few hours and many sore finger tips and it looks much better
God those last two inches of the top rim literally took about an hour. This was where i broke the last one so i was extra careful.

Received my light, filter and timer in the mail yesterday
tank is derimmed and reseamed. Hopefully it holds water and stays together
Plants have been ordered.
I think all is in order to get this tank running sometime next week.

Just in thinking, I'd say consider PMing Rachel if you have a stock list, even if you're not considering purchasing from her.
The Killis are pretty neat. They -- as I heard it put once before -- do certainly look like little submarines. They're also the first fish I've ever had reproduce in my waters

Thanks for the compliments and suggestions MABJ. Least killis look like pretty cool little fish, they will be on my consideration list.
You may very well be correct about otos. I have seen people with 2-3 living healthy in 5 gallon tanks on here so I just assumed I would be able to keep one in a 2.5 for algea control and their appearance. I have a specialty fish distributor a few blocks away from me and will be consulting him on my stocking options just to ensure i will have a happy healthy tank.

Love the look, and I'll be following along.
You could always stick a few Least Killifish in. I've got them in a 2.5 and their swimming patterns don't indicate they need a bigger tank.
My 2.5 is 18" long, but still.
I might be wrong, but I thought ottos were regarded as needing a bigger tank.
MABJ's iDevice used for this message :p

I'd just trim the excess, which is maybe 1/4" or a bit more. I place the razorblade at one end of the seam, sink it in the silicone to the glass, and slide it firmly to the other end using the glass itself as a guide, and my finger as a spacer, so I don't cut any closer to the joint than intended. Then, I use the razorblade to remove the trimmed strip, which usually comes in one piece. Just scrape the hazy leftover like it was algae, and you're done.
Good luck with the project. Layout looks promising.

Your welcome, simple and clean looking can be very nice.

It's easy and ends up looking a lot better than it does now. Takes around half an hour and maybe 3 razorblades for a 2.5g.

Id like a few chili rasbora, but i think its just to small to have a healthy school. I'll have to save them for when i get my 5 gallon going
