vvDO Last update before I moved, unfortunately my betta went to fishy heaven. This gave me the ability to get more fish.

Added 6 Cory pygmaeus and 6 bororas (exclamation point). One Cory died soon after purchase. Then found a great deal on chili rasboras and added 10, since then I can count 7-8 but they move so fast. I had issues with my CO2 valve turning up without adjustment probably due to my son messing with all the tubing and who knows what when I'm at work. Will post a more recent pic once the lights turn on again.

parrottbay You think if you get enough cherries that he wont be able to eat as fast as that they can produce?
09-29-2013 06:21 PM
vvDO Yes, I have, but I'm sure my betta will turn them into lunch.
09-29-2013 02:56 PM
parrottbay AWESOME, I heard about it in a few threads but I hope they have more sizes than the ray2 like 12" lol.

Have you thought about shrimp for this tank?

vvDO Hold out for finnex's newest LED, planted+. It should be somewhere in between a fugeray and a ray2. Expected release was Oct last I heard.

parrottbay HUMMM... that is a shame that the fugeray doesn't put enough out . I am looking for a light for my cube like yours but want to do HC. BTW I am subscribing so keep up the good work and posts, please!

vvDO Not sure if HC would grow well. HM and DHG are growing well just slow. I'm using a fugeray 12" which give low light, but it has CO2 which helps.

I am planning to turn this into a med-high light tank. I recently purchased LEDs off eBay and am awaiting delivery.

parrottbay So is this a high light tank? Could it grow dwarf baby tears?

vvDO New Stand...

Some new plants...

And new fish...
Betta baby all grown up, turns out its a double tail...

Also added 2 rosy loaches, if I can find more, I would definitely add more. Very cool fish but the need more company....

vvDO Thanks. Rams came from a Bay Area hobbyist of CG. I removed 3 rams and transferred them to my 20L. Turns out I only have 1 female.

I<3<*))))>< Wow, this tank looks amazing, great job! Love the contrast in the plants as well, and the fish choice is spectacular. I was this close to going Rams myself.
