loucas6290 10/29: Day 27 DSM

Throughout the ongoing journey of my first journal, I've found frequent DSM updates to be a waste of everyone's time, so I've been trying to space them out.

Growth has been outstanding. who knew a 2x2" mat of UG would go so far. I just planted some micro swords in the back left portion. Enjoy!

FTS:






Root Growth!

Umm, that wasn't me who suggested that. I like the more aggressive slope in the second set. As for rattling HOB's... I know what you mean.

For filtration i was planning on an Eheim 2213. I have the 2215 and 2217 running on other tanks, and IME you cant go wrong with them. HOBs always end up going from trickling to rattly for me.

kribkeeper888 Good start, when you do your hardscape keep your substrate line straight. And as for nose at night i have uh....5 tanks in my room LOL
