Saw this beautiful tank when I was going through the Low-tech show and tell a few weeks back! Splendid job and looks to be a super slow growing, but simple tank. Definitely looks great - I love it.

Will look great either way though!
Where did you order your Max Mix from? The prices vary between it and the Ista Turbo Reactor (same idea) I find pretty wildly.

IMO wiht MC without a dry start is a good option to go with. Once it's established it does very, very well and spreads out fairly quick. Key thing is just nutrients and lighting.

I wouldn't necessarily call either of those dutch or iwagumi.
Both however are beautiful looking - loving the wall of bolbitis.
Is the skim 350 the only filtration you're running?

Not at all. That was the agreed upon price, and when i went to go pick it up i was "wow, that's thick". Ignoring the innuendo in that statement, still a very good deal.

Tank is shut down for the time being unfortunately! I will set it up back up eventually - likely going Iwagumi route. Until then my focus will be on my 17G!
