The idea is to have enough plant mass that it doesn't need a filter. Just bi-weekly water change of 1 gallon to keep the water clean. The Mini Pellia in this tank grew from a few patches to about enough to cover a large dinner plate right now. 6 months of growing, plucking and replanting here and there Very easy for me to maintain at the moment. I would have a thicker HC patch on the right side but a 2 week vacation, my mister died and they dried out. This is what's bouncing back from a 90% wipe-out

theone29 Does having an empty work in progress tank count? . I am still gathering equipment and will be moving in 3 months so I am going to set it up after I move. Btw, cool sticker, I would really like one.

MsNemoShrimp 12G Members! I don't see many have the 12G Club sticker to represent for your beautiful tanks. PM me a full tank shot of your current 12G tank and I'll give you a free sticker. Sticker is only 0.75"x1.5" so it's not intrusive at all, especially when the background is clear so you can see your tank. Limited time offer

Filter Advice

Any recommendations on HOB or corner filters for a 12G long? We don't have a lot of room for the larger filters, so the more space saving we can get, the better.

We are thinking of setting up a low-tech, low-current hillstream setup. We're aiming for something to make the hillstream loaches happy, but not blow the CPO away.

When the tank fully cycles itself, we don't do water changes; we just top off the water. A good amount of biomedia storage in the filter will be helpful!

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

- 1 CPO
- 2 Sewellia lineolata or Gastromyzon sp.

swoof Looks like Marine Depot doesn't carry Mr. Aqua anymore. They have a different 12L/22L from AquaMaxx Aquariums.

MsNemoShrimp Curious to see the update on this one!

The rocks and driftwood are from a nearby river. I soaked them in a bucket for a few weeks, checked water chemistry before and after and they seem to be safe.

Yesterday I planted about 100 HC seeds for the carpet. they are already starting to sprout. The carpet is the only thing I plan on doing from seed, since I couldn't justify the expense of root plugs.
