Its looking great, the HC and Tonina is growing in great, and the rocks are bit of criticism is to hide the co2 diffuser so its not in the front.... its look better IMO.....but overall looks great:)

what are you using for filtration, and what is your dosing, etc.? SHOW ME THE SPECS!

guppy 09-19-2006 04:05 AM

blue: I get that a lot with the co2 diffuser I am actually switching it out to a even smaller one.

2.5 gallon tank= $10
12" compact flourent light fixture from scape member= $10
18 6700k/10000k watt pc bulb= $18
azoo palm filter= $6
glass diffuser= $5
DIY co2= $5 yeast+sugar
ADA aquasoil roughly 3-4lbs= $10
ADA rocks= $15

HC., Glosso, Crypt. Parva, Tonina sp. belem, Bylax Japonica, Teneullus sp. 'red' and Ranunculus inundatus

Dosing = a little bit of No3 and KCl here and there just a little bit at a time.

danepatrick 09-19-2006 04:11 AM

what about filtration?

turbomkt 09-19-2006 05:35 AM

Filtration would be the Azoo Palm filter.

epicfish 09-19-2006 11:18 AM
