|VincentK||Thanks! I got the wood from Manzanita Burlworks at www.manzanita.com, they have a $25 dollar package for nano aquariums.|

Got rid of the old rocks, I didn't really like the flatness of the old setup I had. Still not sure what plants I want to put in here.
I also ordered a 27w Archaea light, but it's currently out of stock, so it should be here within a couple of weeks.

But then I figured I was doing something wrong, as most of my HC started dying off, so I filled it and got my co2 going (first paintball setup ).
I think it's doing alright, it just got cloudy, but I figured that would happen.
Some of it seems to be growing out of the dead/dying plants. Gosh, this sure is familiar huh? Seems like just yesterday that I was watching new plants grow out of my dying HM with algae everywhere.
Finally, a full tank shot:
I'm still a bit iffy on the hardscape, I could use some opinions.

Well the plant on the far left looks like it needs iron. Brightwell Fe should help. It contains- Iron oxide, iron sulfate.
I think some Ludwiga to separate the Rotala indica and Stargrass would make the plants stand out. For the Rotala indica and Stargrass both have pointed leaves.

Here's my cube, it's looking nicer. I got rid of a lot of the algae and reduced the light to about 7 hours a day.
Here's my messy 20 gallon long, I'm still trying to get things figured out in this tank.
Just planted in the Myriophyllum, not sure if it will do well in low tech or not.

Hilde, I have 26 watt CFL over both tanks, but currently I'm not dosing anything, but I will start again.
Acula, the bumblebee goby is doing well, I've read that there are two species; Brachygobius doriae, and Hypogymnogobius xanthozona. Brachy. doriae is brackish only and has broken bands. The other species, H. xanthozona has solid bands, and will do fine in either brackish or fresh.

|Dr. Acula||How's that bumblebee goby doing in there with what I assume is fresh water? I saw a couple of those guys at the LFS and was crazy tempted to get one or two, but always thought that they needed brackish. Or at least that it was pretty preferential.|

I see the Rotalla in the 10 gallon is pinking. What light, fertz do you dose, do you have.
The cube looks like it could use some KNO3.

10 gallon is doing well, I added those pieces of wood because I needed something to tie my Fissidens onto.
My cube, which is growing the moss very well, I think I may have to trim it, which I'm not really looking forward to. Also, it looks like there's a lot of algae on the side walls, but there isn't, I promise.
Finally, a pic of my female betta, which I really like a lot, it's in my room and swims up to the glass every time I come to look at her.
Thanks for looking.
