|bawigga||Any updates? How's the new scape, and did you ever figure out a CO2 solution?|

So this tank has been running for about 2 months now, give or take. It's not progressed any, at all. I took the Ott-Lites off it, and have just been running the LEDs. I can't really figure out a CO2 solution that would work well in here, especially with the HOB so I'm thinking I'm going to do a rescape with this, get a good bunch of rocks and some manzanita and toss in a bunch of Anubias nana 'petite'. I'll eventually set up the Mini-M as a planted tank with Co2, but probably not for a while (at least till I move out of this apartment)
On the bright side, I've only sustained one causality, one of the cories a few days back. The shrimp & oto are keeping this crystal clean and the CPD's are more acclimated to this and hang out in the front now as opposed to behind the rocks & under the filter sponge haha

|krishanu||Good looking tank! Keep us updated. FYI hairgrasses are all Eleocharis sp. - I'm going to guess that you have either E. parvula or E. sp. 'belem'.|

|GMYukonon24s||You have a good start here. I agree can't wait for it to fill in.|

Ramos' Fluval Edge
After a fairly long hiatus, I'm getting back in the game
Started this up about a month ago, it's the new LED Edge's. Here area couple shots from today.
2x 13W Ott-Lites
Edge HOB Filter (Aqua-Clear 20 I believe)
Eleocharis sp. 'belem'
3x Celestial Pearl Danio
3x Hasbrosus Cories
3x Amano Shrimp
I plan to add 3 or so Emerald Dwarf Rasboras if my LFS gets them in next week as they said they were. If not I'll add another 3 CPD's. Some of the plants I had in here to cycle came from my brothers tank that had a massive hair algae outbreak, I thought I got clean ones but it brought some with it it would seem. The Amano's have done a great job clearing it out so far though, had them 3 days and it's almost all gone.
As far as CO2 goes, I'm contemplating how I want to add it in here, and also how I'll actually get it to work well in here. I was going to do DIY until I get my hands on an actual system, and I've found some of the mini ones but none include a solenoid so I'm kind of thinking I might build my own.
