It looks like a typical Aqueon or similar 20L. Derimming isn't hard, but it is time consuming - the silicone is often really bad.

I love this tank. I love the simplicity, and I love the new wood.

gorally Great setup and great turf you have. Can I ask if the UV sterilizer help reduce hair algae?

skystrife I really like the wood placement there! (I think I prefer it compared to the rock scape before)

Much more depth than before.

minicrazy592 Quick look at something I did today...

ACFishTank Great setup! I like the rasboras..

minicrazy592 No I just trim the hairgrass flush with the tops of the HC. I actually need to do it again.
01-06-2013 09:33 AM
Ben. Looks so lush! Are you having any problems trimming the HC since the hairgrass is also growing in the same area?

minicrazy592 So long over due update. Since my last post, plants have been trimmed a couple of times. Also built a new stand out of Ikea bits as I was tired of looking down at my tank. Don't mind my heater, it's a bit cold in Austin these days.








Normally the CO2 tank would be here, but it was getting refilled.




Easy access to valves and filter's power strip for feeding time.




And the plants:
