So I decided to just try to do a more natural looking tank. I was vaguely trying to go for a river-ish scene, that just doesn't look like a mess in my living room. What do you guys think?

Lol. Not all tanks have to be high tech to look good. It could be simple and as long as you take a liking to it, then it already serve it's purpose. I see the beauty in simple setups too, nothing wrong with that. Great job!

Great method. Yeah I noticed they like it better when it's 1/2 way and not more. Somehow when they DSM, they don't like puddling. Lol. But yeah, looks very healthy and lush! Be careful with CO2, they tend to give a very easy rise for algae :/

Low Iron glass is clearer. Some people prefer it over traditional aquarium glass and is a little more expensive.

Garnkrevor Garnkrevor I sure hope so, the low iron one is a bit out of my price range at the moment.

swoof They might have run out of the regular and only have the LI in stock.

Garnkrevor Garnkrevor Am I going blind or did Marinedepot stop selling the 12G regular and only sell the Low Iron version?
