5G Edge + CRS SSS + Fire Reds + Macro Photography
 
A recent move forced me to break down my five gallon Fluval Edge that I was using for a Endler tank. This time I'm going super simple with just shrimp, and locally collected plants. Starting off with Aqua Soil, a couple Hygrophila Polysperma, Hydrocotyle tripartita and some locally collected "star moss" and mossy rocks. Not sure if the moss can grow submerged but I'll soon find out. :) Oh and you may of noticed I don't have shrimp yet, still trying to figure out what type I want to go with... *Edit- There's CRS, Cherry, Amano.

It fits perfectly on an antique sewing machine cabinet. On the floor you can see the old stainless steel rimmed aquarium I just picked up. That will be a project for another day!

It looks great! Nice and simple. Very tranquil :)

I would go with crystal black shrimp for this if your water allows.

I really hope the moss transitions to submerged growth, I really like how it looks too!

What's an XD? I don't have a black background, just the first picture is a faster shutter speed so it only picks up the tank light. ;)

What kind of moss is that on your 'mossy rock' ? Looks great so far by the way :)

I don't know what kind of moss it is; Found it in a local stream.

I love that aquarium on the floor!! Hope you will do a journal when you start it, where'd ya get it?

I like the Edge too, I think simple setups are some of the best looking ones.

raven_wilde 10-15-2011 06:10 PM

*subscribed* I love seeing what other people are doing with their Edge!

NeocaridinaCollector 10-15-2011 08:28 PM

I think the modern tank goes perfect with the antique table! I was also able to hide all the cords inside the table so it looks much cleaner now. The tank on the floor is a vintage Pemco 10G aquarium I picked up at a thrift store for $6. I haven't had time to clean it up or even see if it still holds water but I couldn't pass it up for that!

Here's my first setup with the Edge, it shows my lighting mod: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ta...9-edge-6g.html
