Couesfanatic I ran mine without a heater.

Andromeda01 Anyone here using a heater on their DB 3.2 gallon? If so what size/brand?

I have a Marineland 25 watt stealth on mine and there is too much fluctuation with the temp. It fluctuates from about 73.5 to 77.5. My guess is that happens because the heater is too big and heats up such a small volume of water too quickly before shutting off. Or maybe the heater is just faulty. Whatever the reason I'm looking for a new heater.

It's frustrating, the small heaters have no temp control and are unreliable while the reliable heaters are too big.

Couesfanatic Looks great! Let us know how the growth is with that light. It looks like the front to back spread is good. I've been thinking about switching my Beamswork for that finnex fugeray, but just for emersed growth stuff. Might be too much for submersed.

Here is my 10 gallon Deep Blue Professional tank. Stargrass and duckweed are the only plants currently. I have 8 CPD's in there, 1 Scarlet Badis, 1 Otto, 5-6 cherry shrimp and some pond snails. And thats a brine shrimp hatchery to the right of the tank. It requires no air pump or light. I feed these fish a mix of NLS and baby brine.

The floaters give a bit of a green tinge to the tank. I pull floaters out periodically and thin it up.

I purchased a 18" Fugeray to replace the previous LED setup & will be using AquaSoil substrate (previous setup was w/o any substrate).

The plan is to DSM an HC lawn. The background planting will be pygmy chain sword. The DSM period will continue until just before the entry period. When the tank is finally flooded, will add accent plantings (driftwood pieces w/anubias & java ferns) to complete the scape. Hope this works, wish me luck!

Started DSM.

Nice tank! That's the look I'm going for except w/ pygmy chain sword along the back during DSM. Like your Beamswork LED but too wide for my OTS filter pipes so, went w/ Fugeray.

When the HC is planted, will post pics.

MABJ Nice good luck with cycling! Keep us posted here.

Jennalyn It's a 16" long 5 gallon. Still pretty bare-bones, but I have plants coming tomorrow and other essentials (heater, thermometer, etc) coming the day after.

I'm in love with the background, though. Once the flourite cloud settles, it's really going to shine. Already looks way better than the pic after just a couple hours.

MABJ Yeah I love it! I do both now, rimless and DBP.

I'm between two tank brands. DBP and AquaTop. You get your bang for your buck on both fronts.

P17 I don't have this specific DBP tank, but I bought their 10 gallon a while back and I'm happy with it. I haven't set it up yet, but I'm loving the heavy, black framing. It gives it this cool geometric look that really stands out with how many other people seem to be gravitating towards the rimless/ seamless look.

MABJ Guess who is pulling his DBP long out again?
