thank you.
its tempting, but not $200 tempting. especially since my plants are doing ok with a $30 light (though one that doesnt look quite as AWESOME as the ada aquasky LED fisture.

just took some pics of the shrimp:

I think that Eriocaulon cinereum 'Mini' would look neat! One of my favorites!

yeah, didnt get that much with the old light.
nope, just high light, high CO2, and high surface agitation.

everything is pearling like mad. since i bumped up CO2 during the week i went with 32w, and the shrimp acclimated, i kept it at that level. shrimp are still happy.
took a few neat macro shots of pearling.

just replanted everything but the anubias (with the size of that thing, and how far its roots go throughout the tank, there is no moving it).
this tank has been slowly winding down. im noticing consistently less and less vigor. in the plant growth, and i think that the ADA AS and the MTS have run their course.
i intend to take down this tank and redo it over winter break. not sure yet what i want to do, but ill likely stick to an iwagumi type layout. the giant petite will be moved to another tank most likely. its just too big for this tank, and while i have no issues cutting off small segments of rhizome for propagation, cutting it up entirely would be such a shame.

here are the pics:

I think an iwagumi scape would be great. Can be hrd to pull off in a cube but can be done for sure.
