!shadow! Something about an empty tank that i enjoy seeing. Maybe it's the infinite amounts of possibilities that can happen within.

!shadow! Not sure what to do with this tank,still in the deciding stages of the layout.

!shadow! Thanks I actually got the tank planted this past saturday. I wanted to let a few days pass before I took pictures so the cloudiness wouldn't affect the quality of the pics. I am extremely happy with the outcome and am looking forward to seeing the growth of the moss and bolbitis in the coming months.I'll post pics in a few hours. stay tuned

IWANNAGOFAST Looks great! jealous of your 60H, i got the 30cm one and I really wish I had more depth.

Hardscape update

Ok so as promised here is a small teaser. The rear i'm undecided on completely sand or soil and just grow tall stem plants like rotala sp green, green cabomba or vals. I pretty much just want something that looks nice and has that nice lush green color that compliments the entire scape. I was thinking dwarf hairgrass or blyxya on the rear. Plants i'm going to use for sure are bolbitis, needle leaf java fern, spiky moss and maybe some fissidens. Anyways here are the pics

update 2/17

Small update. I finally got the tank about two days ago. Had to move a couple of things around including lay the 48g on the floor since I don't trust putting it anywhere else for the risk of cracking it. I did pick up a panorama fixture from my lfs. Supposedly they say it's 40% more intense and judging by the looks of it, It sure does seem that way. I bought me a ecoxotic controller as well to make sure when I work my plants get the needed amount of light without the worry of a extended photoperiod. I did change my plans up as far as the hardscape AGAIN lol. I will take pics of the pre-hardscape on tuesday but in the meantime here are the pics of the controller.

!shadow! Yup the tank is actually on it's way finally after about a 2 1/2 month wait. A bit disappointed since the crate wasn't included due to the mistake of a smaller tank I had to dish out about 120$ for the crate to safely ship the tank. Thought i'd get it for free or something since i've been so patient with them. Oh well atleast I will finally get what i've been waiting for. Never thought it'd take this long but at the same time i've been taking other projects like re-arranging my room to better accommodate the tank. I did want to experiment putting the tank near a window where the sun seems to shine down on it perfectly and create that sunrise to sunset feel. I know i've read about how it'll cause algae but i'm running low light plants and will do my 50% h20 changes weekly. As far as the baby danios they've gotten pretty big about an inch compared to a cm before gonna probably move them in the 30-c one of these days. I'll give you guys a teaser pic of how the wood will be arranged tomorrow.
