Finally got my home office all set up how I want it, so here's some pics of my other Mini-M in there. Trimmed a week or so ago so it's not looking too pretty, but you get the idea.

I have an Eheim 2213 on one of my mini-m's (5.5 gallon) and it works well. I have the same filter on my 45P (10 gallon-ish) and sometimes I think the flow could be better. I use hydor inline heaters...

You have no idea how much I hate that AC unit (except on hot summer days here when it's over 40C/104F). I want to replace it with a more modern split system in a better location at some point .

We spend so much time focusing on perfecting and photographing our aquascapes, but I'm curious to see the environments surrounding the planted tanks we work so hard to show off here. Where do you...

I use a Zetlight Mini on the Do! Aqua 20C (20cm cube) my Betta lives in.

Quite a neat little light, but not made for anything larger than a tank of the above dimensions.

Nice sized tank! I have a similar sized 45P. Are you going to be keeping it on the counter where it is in the photo? It would be an interesting challenge to do an iwagumi viewable from both sides.

I feel your pain, this stage of starting up a new tank can be disheartening but it's not uncommon. Things will turn around once you get the balance right.

I think 3.5 hours photoperiod is not...

How hard is it to kill moss?

Turns out, it's very hard.

A month and a half ago I re-did one of my tanks. There was a bunch of moss in there and I put some in a take away container with some water as I didn't need to use it. I...

What sort of macro lens are you using for your recent pics?

Maintenance isn't so bad. Water changes are pretty quick as it's such a small tank. I do water changes on my three tanks on Saturday mornings and it doesn't take long at all.

Sadly, this scape didn't do well. The blyxa continually melted and would just not establish itself, leading to a proliferation of all sorts of algae.

I tore the scape down and set up a new one...

Do plants know what time it is?

An odd title perhaps, but a valid question. Do plants know what time of day it is and does it make much difference when we choose to start and finish our artificial photoperiods?

I've got two...

Yep, just your standard 10mm clear vinyl. The piece I use was originally attached to a small gravel vacuum but I ended up just yanking it off and using the tubing on its own.
