Looks very nice! Great use of space and proportion. It will be interesting to see how that changes as this fills in.

That last picture is of 80/20. http://www.8020.net/. It comes in many sizes, one of which I'm sure would hold a lot of weight. But you will likely have to configure it yourself.

The aesthetics of stacking aside, i'd recommend putting just a bit on there. The last thing i'd want for my tank is a stack tipping over and cracking my tank, or putting livestock at risk. IME, you...

Having a kid was definitely the thing that kept me from building too many tanks. (In fact, initially I got rid of everything I own). Back to one simple tank.

My "one tank" would ideally be a...

sure. But do you try to swirl it around together and chop? There's 100 ways to get a haircut.

Thanks, all! I love that people love this tank as I was inspired by so many others. Though once I planted things, I didn't do much. It's done this by itself.

I ignore it. Srsly. I tried to fight it at first, and was losing, after I gave up, most of the HC chokes it out. Nothing super major.

woops, sorry guys. Missed these posts.

I'll try to get some photos up soon. No major growth, just a bunch of Cherry babies. I think I need to get some more light over the tank, which is a bit of...

Hairgrass was out of water for a month. Had to take the mopani wood out as mold started to form. Yuck!

Double dosing excel for another week or so, then sending off for a regulator.

Update! Water and Plants!

Picked up some flora earlier this week at AFA. Wasn't totally sure what I wanted. Just knew I needed some stem plants and wanted some small anubias.

So here's what I've got so far (need to clean...

Dekstr, you already know I like that tank, but LOL at "colossal experience" and the promo.

Thanks, Chris.

As for adding more light for the HC, it's a 2x13w AHS kit, and I can't really cram anymore over it right now. I don't think a 36w kit will fit over it in that hood. It's not...

Picked up some Micro Rasbora and Shrimp from AFA yesterday. Everything is still alive, so that's good!

Worker bees... err, shrimp

Search reviews for ZooMed 501, or Tom's Rapid Canister. They're small.

I'm using a Aquaclear 20 (fka Mini) on a 5.5g and it works great.

This picture makes me pretty much 100% sure it's HC. Maybe it's just camera distortion on the other ones. 2 of those other photos don't even look like the same plant to me. But if they are, I guess...

For my next tank I'm going to be looking at Pea-puffers. But i haven't had one yet. In all my nanos previously,...
