Thank you! It's been a joy so far. Easy Maintenance and the shrimp, cories and fish are so entertaining.

|Hiddentanks||New scape looks good! A credit card works well for removing algae from glass and wont scratch it.|

|frrok||I also added 2 chili rasboras and 1 boraras merah from my mini-m. They are loving life. The only algae that I have is on the glass. And some places it's really hard to scrap off during my water changes. I'm hoping eventually it will go away. Anyone have any tips. Right now I'm trying get at it with a toothbrush. It's super tough.|

|frrok||48 day UPDATE. growth is slow and steady. The moss is looking really good for a low tech set up. I left the tank alone for almost 2 weeks while I was away on vacation. No issues whatsoever. Think I'm going to switch to 2 week water changes now.|

|hitmanx||Greaaaaaaaaaaat... your new aquascape has given me an MTS relapse... I was gonna decommission my mini-m to make room (and time) for a new super wide but shallow riparium tank, but now I also wanna try an island... thanks|

Yea. I have thought of that. I may cut my light period... We shall see. Thank you!!

I'm interested in how well the fugeray-r will light this tank while keeping the algae at bay... it's a great light and I have one on a 5.5 standard but with at least 50% floater coverage, and another on a mini-m which had a lot of stems but now almost 100% floater coverage. .. I have yet to experience much algae at all
But this island style doesn't look good with floaters and usually has less over all plant mass than traditional design... it will be interesting to see how successful you are... I'm rooting for you

frrok's Aqua Pro 25cm Cube
And yes, it's lava rock. I actually had to use some other granite type rocks to hold the wood down as well. After I scaped and planted it, i started to float up as I added water! Total noob mistake. Lol. I had to redo the whole thing. I am adding more plants this weekend. Some anubias nan petite and more plants in the middle. I would love to add c02 but I have shrimp and tbo id rather not deal with dosing and doing weekly water changes. Need this to be as low maintenance as possible.

That looks very nice! I look forward to it developing... I like it
I like the island design in these cubes... I almost did one too but decided on corner driftwood with emerged wood and riparium plants...
Is that lava rock? I used that too with diced fissidens 1.5month dry start...
