My 12gallon long
Took these pics today. I'm about 5 weeks into the dry start. It's looking fantastic! I'm very please and excited for the baby tears to carpet the entire bottom. Let me know what y'all think

|shift||It's 36x12x13. Essentially a big brother of the 12g long. I got it at a local pet store. Was there display one (last one!). A little over priced but I jain loved the look of the tank with bent corners|

|bigd603||I agree, beautiful tank! How tall is it? My biggest trouble with the 12 long is finding short enough plants. Where did you get it?|

|dirtydonato||It seems this thread is dead and that's a shame because I just got my 12gallon long and I wish we could all discuss them more. It seems the posts are few and far between now|

New to Planted tanks, New to 12G long
I recently saw a planted tank at an acquaintance's place and was hooked before i could say plants! I have background in reef tanks as well as Hydroponics (yaay for growing veggies in the backyard!) I guess it was just a matter of time...
So i have been reading up as much as i can and i have come up with the following list.
*Tank - Mr. Aqua 12G long low iron - ordered
*filter - Eheim 2215 - have not ordered it yet but seems like this would be enough.
*lights - I have a 36" Sunblaster T5ho with a reflector (6400K)(39w) lying around and would like to use that at the start. Might do a custom LED setup at a later point. This is a high PAR light will need to adjust the height from the substrate.
*Substrate - ADA power sand and ADA Aquasoil amazonia - will pick up locally
*CO2 setup - GLA GRO regulator, atomic inline diffuser, check valve, Cal Aqua clip drop checker and 5lb tank - ordered
*flow - i have looked at the ADA and Do!Aqua flow pipes. most probably i will go with the do!Aqua, at least to start with and will replace if it doesnt work. Would appreciate comments if anyone has used either on this tank
*Hardscape - some variation if iwagumi. havent decided the kind of rock yet.
*Plants - dawrf baby tears or the dwarf grass "belem" havent thought about anything else yet
*fish - not sure, if i can get away with not having any fish, i would like that but not sure if thats possible?
*Ferts - EI system, though i would like to modify it such that i dont have to dose everyday, i am out of town a lot. any suggestions?
it has been a pleasure checking out all the tanks in this thread and i am looking forward to contributing all comments and guidance are welcome.

|dirtydonato||Two 18" Finnex Ray 2's attached together and 1 36" fluval 5200k full spectrum dry starting my baby tears.|

|dirtydonato||Should I be running my 36" finnex aswell as the new fluval LEDs? Is there too much par I can give to dwarf baby tears? Thanks guys!!! I'm so happy to be a part of this awesome club|

|dirtydonato||Here are 4 more pics of the tank as of right now. I just took these.... I had a little die off of the baby tears...can I leave the top just open like this during the dsm? Or should I cover it with plastic wrap all the time? I use it one day then I take it off... I dunno.,|

Hello everyone, I have also recently joined the 12 gallon club.
I'm rocking a Mr.Aqua 12gallon ultra serene Low Iron tank.
Dwarf baby tears is the only plant which I am currently doing a DS to root the plant properly.
I have 2 18" finnex ray 2's ... The new LEDS
And I also just bought a 36" full spectrum 5200k fluval led. Give some nice color to the tank... And hopefully it grows some of the baby tears... Any input on this light for this tank?
