prostudent4life I've been working on my edge. Its stocked with shrimp, Ruby and Ember tetras. The micro sword is looking better since adding the Planted+, it even appears to be spreading now.

boguz Hi guys
I am an edge tanks lover. I like its design a lot. And finally got one 6months ago. As i like planted tanks, i have been trying some low tech designs. I tried tying mosses to small rocks but it didnt go well. So, i am now trying tying to small nets. We ll see if its work or not.
And yes, lightining is poor, hope to get 42led soon.
Do you have any ideas for growing well mosses at this poor light ?

caffeinetherapy Just finished my latest rescape on the Edge in my daughter's room. Definitely my most challenging one so far. Water's still cloudy. Better photos coming soon!

brendan Hi guys new to this forum I love the edge tanks I have owned a few of them I'm now down to one unfortunately lol. I've moved a few times in the last few years so it has limited me as for now I'm doing a fresh water planted tank. Jscape style in the 12 gallon fluval edge tank I have the stock led's on the tank but they are getting old . So my question is are there any links on this thread to easy to do retro fits for better Led's or does anyone have a already made led that they use on there tank that fits great under the cover with not to much modding let me know what u guys have also here are a few pictures of the tank

lighting options

I just purchased a 6g edge. I was planning on doing a smaller planted tank, and then I encountered the design of this and purchased it for the aesthetics before really doing my research. I appears like many people mod them, but I am not handy at all when it comes to building things, so I wanted a quick fix. It seems like many upgrade to the 48led fixture, but what if I were to do this instead? If I used this Finnex to plop on top of the tank,
Amazon.com: Finnex Stingray Aquarium LED Light, 16-Inch: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Finnex Stingray Aquarium LED Light, 16-Inch: Pet Supplies
would this be good enough light to grow low to moderate level plants without having to use pressurized co2?

XRamboX First post, and here's my Edge:




Up till now, I've focused on fish, but starting to add plants (the one embedded in the red rock, the rest are fake for now).
I have a dwarf gourami, four tetras, two ghost shrimp, and a few nerite snails. Technically, that's slightly overloaded, but I keep close tabs on water quality, and haven't had any issues. A year ago, I replaced the stock halogen lights (which burned out incessantly) with the 12g 42LED array.

I'll be removing that gravel and replacing it with Eco-Complete substrate. For now, I'm dosing the plant with API Leaf Zone, and it seems to be fine, albeit growing slowly (no surprise there).

Previous aquascape:

*Daylight:


*Nightlight:


I realize that amount of aeration is overkill, but it actually saved my fish through through a massive cyanobacteria bloom. I treated that with erythromycin, so now the tank is sparkling clean. I'm more careful with my feeding since then, and the problem hasn't resurfaced.

Beardie White leds only

White and blue leds

Blue leds only

Here is where I cut the holes for the canister filter tubes. You can see the slot where the light arm would normally be at the top of the photo, but the light was not on the tank at the time.

kman Very pretty. Be careful of algae, with that wood so close to the very intense lights, but I like the arrangement, and those stripey rocks are very cool.

Do you have a shot of the mods you did for the light to fit?
