Past Scape 5/07/13
Past Scape 4/25/13
Tank: Do!aqua 45x24x30cm (8 Gallon)
Filter: Cascade 500 Canister Filter
Substrate: Amazonia Aqua Soil
Lighting: Finnex Ray II Ultra Slim LED DS - Dual 7000k 18"
CO2: Pressurized 2-3 BPS (Hooked up to a reactor)
I know, that I have much to learn about every new scape, but this time.. I wanted to take my lighting / CO2 to a better level.
Learning about PAR vs WPG, I've decided to change my light system..
I have a Finnex Ray II Ultra Slim LED DS - Dual 7000k 18", coming in my Monday. Mike (TexasCichlid) brought up how i would have about 70+ PAR, so Im planning on hanging it above the aquarium..
Now with CO2, my Gf stepped on my beautiful glass diffuser:icon_sad:... but, decided to try out a reactor instead of getting another glass diffuser..
Im very new to this, and my setup isn't the most cleanest look, I would say... >__<
I intend to build a cabinet to cleanly set the tank on, along with hiding all the nasty wiring..
Along with my light will be arriving plants.. Will be getting Blyxa Japnoica to cover back corners, and more S. Repens 049 to make main foreground cover.
Thanks Mike (TexasCichlid).
Anyways, heres the tank as it sits now...
Wll be getting the Co2 adjusted over the next few days.. http://i.imgur.com/0sjUDS2.jpg
I hate the bulky look of the stock input / output..Im for sure will be getting some Glass Lily Pipes soon!
Thanks for viewing.
damn the first scape was bomb.
DAY 1 | PLANTS ARRIVAL | S.Repens 049 & Blxya Japonica
Calling this officially DAY 1.
So, thanks to Mike (TexasCichlid) for the unbelievably healthy plants!
He has the most healthiest Blyxa Japonica i've ever seen! lol
So, glad to own some from him!
HIT HIM UP!
Along with that, finally got to add plants in.
I'll be using S. Repens 049 as my main foreground and the blyxa for some background plants.
Heres some pictures of the initial planting and flood.
Always enjoy planting :D

GF takes over with the shots from here...:p
Very nice layout! U got stuarogyne repens! I am so jealous XD
Ya get a lily pipe soon, the filter strainer looks wrong! :P
Keep us updated!
hehe yeah.. PM Mike (TexasChichlid), such a nice helpful guy. His tank is unbelievable.
LOL. I do I do... Im so bad with sizing that Im worried I might pick up the wrong sizes...:p
I have a Penn-Plax Cascade 500. It a decent filter, for the price you pay, but I do seriously need to find some lily pipes... Help? :D
Day 2 - Finnex Ray II arrival
So, after waiting close to a week for the fixture to come in. It arrived!
I'll let the pics do the talking..
with Archaea 27w CFL
with Finnex Ray II
wow... how it brings a HD look.. :proud:
Afraid of the high PAR and algae going uncontrolled, I plan to leave it on for 4 hours, until I figure out to hang it... (PLEASE HELP ME WITH ANY SORT OF IDEAS ON HANGING IT, Im the worst 'DIY' person.. :help:)
Looks superb Mike! I would view this thread and contact beachbum as he was making hanging mounts. Maybe you can get some ideas from him. Also, Jbrady is a master DIY.
Also, I think your next purchase should be some nice lily pipes!
I messaged him about the brackets. Another buddy of mines said he purchased some for $10, so hopefully I can do the same too!
As for my lily pipes, i finally measured them and got a measurement of 1/2 inch (half an inch). What size lily's will fit? is it 13mm?
Your rocks are amazing. Gorgeous selection and I really like the placement.
"my beautiful Gf stepped on my glass diffuser:(..."
Just kidding, haha I like where this tank is headed!
Thanks! I hope everything grows in nicely.
