Fluval Edge Journal
 
Hello TPT'rs,

I've had some fun with this little Fluval Edge. Hope you enjoy. I recently turned this into a shrimp tank.

*Update February '11*

Before my eyes were opened to the planted tank. The dreaded artificial tank. :confused1:

looks good... I love the Family guy set up thought LOL

Looks GREAT!!!

I would bet it was a bigger tank if not for the size of the fish! I just saw those tanks at the Big Box Stores last month, and they are VERY COOL!!! I might just have to give one a try after seeing yours!

What are the actual brands on the lights you used to upgrade?

Keep up the great work and keep us up to date on how it is doing. I am very interested to see how it continues to grow in!

Take Care,
Drew:icon_smil

I picked up a new plant. I think it's rotala rotundifolia?
