Mr. Aqua 7.5G Cube


Fauna: None and there may never be any. I'm tired of having to fix my slopes in other tanks due to the inhabitants.
Ferts: EI + Excel + RootCaps.
Filter: Hagen Mini Elite.
Flora: Mini micro sword; Blyxa japonica lining back wall.
Lighting: 18w of PC lighting + moonlight at night. 6700K/10000K combo bulb.
Substrate: Sand topped with AS Amazonia.

Tank was just set up three hours ago so it is a bit bubbly. Scaping rocks were from my Mini M's previous scape making things a bit limited. As usual, I'm happy with how the scape turned out (I'm not hard to please).

Thanks goes to onefang for the tank.

I paid $15 shipped for it. I actually got two at the time and have one used over my Mini M. I like how the moonlight has its own dedicated cord/plug so that it can be added to its own timer.

That looks like a nice light. Too bad they've discontinued it.

Moonlight. The LED is actually white rather than the blue that my camera produces.

Feel free (pun intended ) to send me your 11.4G and I'll put it to use.

Your cube definitely made me want one after I saw it all those months ago. After playing with this one, I am now a fan of cube tanks.

True. Ghosts exist unlike silly rainbows.
