Gotta have a cover or my kitten will be swimming! Plus I feel like I'm not advanced enough for that!

And... De-rim that ish!

my heater was on overdrive... water was warm to the touch. Looks like I need to go buy a new one :| plants are now in the tank. can't wait for the eco complete to come so the plants can be grounded

I have the fastest snail in this tank right now, along with three other babies (smaller than a 1/2 cm. (i'd say 3mm)

got some plants in today! i dont want to post pictures until i get a substrate cap/more eco complete!
but here is some moss that i got (dont have anything in the tank to put it on yet, in search of a center piece but can't seem to pull the trigger)

kcoscia 08-20-2013 01:55 PM

getting CFLs! hope this will boost my growth!

kcoscia 08-22-2013 09:13 PM

put the CFLs in today and set up a timer for two 3 hour periods with a two hour break, 6 total hours!
i will be posting pictures when i get more substrate. right now the tank is a mess with floating stem plants and all sorts of stuff since I dont have enough substrate to keep stems down

kcoscia 08-23-2013 11:26 PM

holy plants!
i got so many plants in the mail today!

so i laid down black sand to cap my eco complete to create depth.

then i planted and planted and planted!

wait till you see it. tomorrow i will post a picture. it's planted chaos but it excites me :)

maybe i will actually scape it soon. today i just had to get everything settled.
