|sockfish||I just noticed member Notorius93 has a "12 Gal Long" in the For Sale section here for $50. San Diego. That's all I know, but it might be a chance to grab one if you're in the area.|

Ive added some plants and a few fish will get some better photos soon and update! Can anyone identify these two plants, I should have paid attention when purchasing, basically just asked for low growing low tech plants, I think the foreground is glosso and the plant in the bg is type of grass... will get some better photos soon

Felt like sharing mine. Wishing I'd taken better photos right now, these are from when I just set it up last Sunday. It's been running for 7 days and amano shrimp have been really busy shuffling sand around since then.

nothing wrong with positioning it like that. Most people keep the spraybar under water to reduce noise.

Okay, I'm about 3 weeks in on my 12 gal saga. I added my White Clouds sooner than planned because our evening temps had dropped below 50.
Any how, the mound failure wrecked havoc on my layout, but I'll leave it for now. I trimmed the plants today, as seen in the most recent photo. The hair grass is filling in nicely. I'm training the hydrocotyle to grow low and thick. The pearl weed may be removed, I'm not sure I like it.
The hot-mess of smaller rocks will mended later. I'll wait to see how the plants do.

Hello all! I am new to fishtanks and stumbled across this forum and thread! Looks like a great source of information, I have what I think is a 12g tank.. being in Australia we use litres... the tank is 900mm x 220mm x 250mm I was chasing a Mr Aqua 12g but not easy to find where I live. Anyways the tank is perfect for the space I am using it in, right next to my couch in a small apartment. So far I have put down some soil and positioned some drift wood and rocks purchased from a store in Perth. Here is the set up at the moment... need to go out and buy some plants this weekend, going to keep the planting minimal and easy to maintain without Co2
I have a question is it ok to position the filter outlet as shown in the photos below the water level? The instructions show the outlet streaming into the water but it is rather noisy in my small living room, I will deal with the noise if it is recommended that I have the filter outlet streaming into the tank... any advice would be great.

Update on my 12g setup. Slow progress. I got as far as staging the rocks and after looking at the pic, it needs adjustments. Plus I realized I need infrastructure for the big mound. Making those tonight.
I'm switching to a smaller rock on the far left. The rocks on the right are not really touching, it's a bad camera angle. And a couple of these will be partially buried.
Concurrently, I've harvested and prepped the plants for placements once I settle on the 7 rock formation.

|BruceF||I thought I had dimmed the light and was only running it for about 6 hours. Guess I was mistaken. Anyway I removed the anubias and put it in another tank to recover. Trying out some other plants now. Once I figure out what works I'll post another picture in a few weeks. Trying some elocharis, rotala and alternathera at the moment.|

Hi, I am setting up a Mr Aqua 12g long this week. I bought it a couple months ago and did not have time to collect all the support systems...including a stand. Found a stylish industrial-look table on Craigslist yesterday, so now I can get this party started.
I wish I had found this thread sooner as I had posted a filter question in the Equipment forum. I've narrowed down my filter options and will hit up the LFS tomorrow.
Anyhow, I'm happy to find like-minded folks and I'll share photos as i progress.
So far I have the tank plus:
A stand (table)
Foam pad to cushion between the tank and table
Earthquake straps attached to wall
Rocks for hardscape (thinking Iwaguni-style)
Plants-dwarf hair grass and Monte Carlo (I already had them in my plant-nursery container)
New set of scape-tools
ADA Colorado Sand
Black Tahitian sand
White Clouds (outside in the pond for the summer)
I'm super excited to complete this set-up. The wait has been an exercise in patience.
