Good looking tank! Keep us updated. FYI hairgrasses are all Eleocharis sp. - I'm going to guess that you have either E. parvula or E. sp. 'belem'.

+1 for the Finnex 4g + canister filter from an owner. It's a solid complete setup.

I've seen the 6g Schuber-Wright at an LFS and it seemed solidly built - but the beveled rim, as nokturnalkid...

@Storm: I think I'll do that cutback. I've considered investing in paintball CO2 but I'd like to have a solenoid on the system as well and that would probably bump up the cost quite a bit.

Updates (10/19)

It's been about three weeks since planting. I've been on a photocycle of about 10 hours, daily dosings of Excel and biweekly dosings of Flourish. So far the individual bunches seem to have grown a...

Moving a Finnex 4g

My Finnex 4g is currently sitting on cinder blocks, which to say the least are not very attractive. My plan is to either build a custom stand, or at least stack the cinder blocks a little higher,...

If you're going for a high WPG planted tank, Hamilton Beach sells a 27W CFL lamp that you can mod and put in the hood of the Edge. I believe these are available at Home Depot. I was considering doing...

Nice setup. What is the foreground plant. Also, did you consider scaping the substrate a little bit. I've always liked it when you have a bit of a slope to lead the eye to the central piece. Or maybe...

I'd come across DSM, but I wasn't sure how much success people had with starting DHG that way. I was under the impression that the emersed form takes a little getting used to an immersed form. I know...

Thanks for the input Storm. I put a Finnex 4g v. Fluval Edge poll up and so far it is overwhelmingly in favor of the Finnex. I think I'm going to send my Edge back to PETCO and get myself a Finnex.

Wow! I just checked the poll and it's 14-0 to the Finnex. I think that this is a no-brainer. EDGE - you're going back. Hello Finnex! Thank you everybody for your input.
