Default After a 2 year break, my new 20g Long tank!

So basically I took some time, sold off my tanks, and moved away from the hobby. Some how I ended up back here.

Anyway here it goes....

Equipment:
20g Long de-rimmed
30.8 lbs of Fluval Stratum
6700k dual 23w CF bulbs in Ikea TERTIAL lamps
Ehiem 2213 Canister Filter
13mm Lily Pipes
5 lb CO2 tank
JBJ NanoZapp 3 Watt Inline UV Sterilizer
eBay CO2 diffuser, bubble counter, and check valve
eBay CO2 regulator

Plants:
Dwarf Baby Tears
Dwarf Hair Grass
more on plants later!


Setup pics:

















One pile of petrified rock





Modifying the lamps reflective capability:

Start by stripping the stickers off and cleaning with acetone




A can of this:




Before and After:




New painted reflector on the left and original on the right




Adding the scape:









Rocks kept falling, so I had to add some anchoring rocks






Plants are suppose to be in friday, so till then!
