|Couesfanatic||Lets see some pics. Looks good, I have the same light. What are you doing with your tubing?, are you going through the top of the stand? What microsword is that?|

|ramen lover||Re-scaped and added fish/shrimp to my low tech nano tank|

im going to re-arrange the stones again because im not too happy with them. i did get a shipment of fissdens in yesterday that im using as 'carpet' for part of the tank. they are on 2x2 pieces of mesh. it'll look better once it grows out. still deciding on the shrimp though. not sure if i should ucse RCS from my 55G or get entirely different shrimp. looking for something colorful/hardy.

|andrewss||a few broken up smaller pieces of the ohko might look good but really its not bad at all as is|

|bitFUUL||How's the tank going? It's been a while since you've updated.|

Thanks man, I appreciate the love for my tank.
Like Brian_Cali said, it is ultimately up to you, if you like it, then that is all that matters.

One more thing I'd like to add Ramen is that you go with your gut instinct on this one, you're the one that's going to enjoy it everyday. When i first started my GLA 6g, and i took a picture of just the yamaya stone, people were telling me (in the AA forum) that my stones were too sparse and small, to add more or larger ones. I decided to ignore the recommendations and go with my own vision. Now that it's put together, i get tons of compliments, which i greatly appreciate because it validates my risk as a job well done... My tank still has a ways to go because it's still sporting the ugly Fluval pipes (hence my want for your lily pipes).
So for the small fish, won't you need a heater for them? I decided to get CPD's after my soon to be acquired red rili shrimp come in.

I love the stones, I love the slope, but to me I feel like you aren't getting the most out of the tank if that makes any sense? I feel like the stones are also throwing the perspective off a bit. Smaller stones would go a long way into helping the tank feel much larger than it is perhaps.
(p.s., click my sig to see my latest tank, it is currently dry starting, but i think i did a decent job with keeping the perspective in tact?)

and nope.. no inline heater right now. maybe later. it'll be primarily a shrimp and moss tank.. and i think they both like colder water. my house is pretty well heated.
i'll move the rocks around and take some pics to see which way looks best.
i love your tank though. i can't really afford/have time to do co2 though.. so no Ray 2 or co2 for me right now.. maybe later on!

Slopes are my preference. They add more dimension. I don't think the positioning of the stones are bad. Perhaps you can try other arrangements (with pics) so you can have options that others can vote on to help you?
BTW, I want your lily pipes!
Are you getting an inline heater for your fauna?

|ramen lover||Thanks all for the comments! Do you think I should have the substrate sloped? Or do you think the substrate should be more flat? I am using 3 stones.. small, medium, and large. not sure how to really position them.|
