Yeah, this one as well as a few others have made me take the plunge. I love the anubias petite and the growth looks awesome. Those tigers look pretty fun too. I just picked up a group of 10 CRS for one of my work tanks and they're the most fun to watch.

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on your tank. I love your driftwood.

Thanks! It was just a matter of very good luck and my persistence at this LFS.

Your tanks are beautiful. I stumbled across this journal the other day, but just now had time to read it. The 12 gallon long really turned out great. You should be very proud. Those DIY acrylic hangers, and the spray bar are excellent.

Also, I love those Tigers, good decision on your part. Have you had a chance to do anything with your little homemade tank you showed in post 110?

I guess I will continue to avoid work, and see if you have any other tank journals to read.

Thank you! I don't have any other journals at the moment, but I may start a few when I begin working on my other tanks. My 11.4G is almost done with a rescape and planting. The Finnex 4G will be turned into a small breeding/ fry rearing tank with an actual scape (we'll see how that actually turns out). There have been minor changes to the 20G. And the mini tank on the shelf under the 12G is currently in the planning stage as I've yet to figure out what to make of it.
As more worthwhile developments occur, I'll be sure to post pics in this thread.

4 layers indeed. Although, it honestly looks no different than with only 1 or 2 layers.

So I had a few shrimp parachuters. One made its way 3 feet from the tank onto my carpet. I almost stepped on it when I saw the little striped speck. Poked it and it wiggled, so I quickly threw it back in the tank. Little guy seemed alright. Now I put on a lid. It's rather ugly. Pics to come.

I've wanted to come up w a good top for this tank, especially w shrimp in the mix. I thought I saw where someone used an out of the box 36" glass top to make something that worked well for this tank

Looks like there's a bit of clado springing up. What to do... Excel? What's the risk of killing all my moss with that? And the spraybar's getting pretty skanky. And the plants are growing oh so slow. No pics, sorry. Too lazy...

looks great - I feel like the tank looks huge in those pictures for some reason, I guess the scape gives off the feel the tank is much bigger than it is

Nice scape! The tank looks larger than a 12g.
