haha looking good. I kept looking at you pic trying to figure out what was on the back wall. Then I remembered that it comes with that. I guess I've looked at mine so much I forgot about the foam wall decor.

Nice start to the tank.

I have been doing the dry start method for almost 4 weeks now and not much growth. What is in there looks great right now but I was hoping for more. Adding the water when the rest of the parts come. Hopefully some circulating water and co2 help it grow.

Hope the background doesn't pop off!

gringostar9 09-09-2012 06:28 PM

Lamp it temporary. Going to buy a LED light soon.

Not to harp on tank sizes and such, but harlequins are more suited for 20 gallon tanks. They like large schools and long tanks.

I love your tank though. I've wanted an EBI for a while. I love fluval products.

Glosso did not make it. Looking to replace it with some other carpeting plant or moss. Added some tiger lotus and a crypt (can anyone identify it). Also took out the betta and added some Barbs and tetras. Also added 2 Zebra Nerita Snails.
Give me some tips on what you would do, and let me know what you think of the tank.
Thanks Mike.
