Did you just drill the tank? Is it wood underneath or something?
Also how did you hang your timers and such?

Awesome tank. Loved the video. I'm curious about your green neon's schooling so tightly. Could it be because of that sand bank in front?

Sorry for the delayed response. I haven't been on the forums for some time.
Spring break! Yay!

I didn't drill anything in the tank glass itself. I only drilled through the top of my tank stand for the filter plumbing and CO2 tubing to pass through.
The timers are all on a power strip that is securely hanging on two screws I drilled into the back support of my stand.

I've contemplated this myself. I feel that the green neons feel safest at the lowest point in my tank, that being the sand bank up front.
They rarely ever venture towards to back of the tank where the substrate slopes upward.
The only time they move back there is when I'm doing a water change or cleaning the glass and they're freaking out.
Even so, they quickly find their way back to the front.
I also feel they are scared of the flame moss and perhaps getting stuck in it. So they avoid the sides, as well.

Really funny when you say "The oily biofilm I used to have hasn't shown its ugly face since!" because when I look at the right of the picture, there is a face! lol

Very nice job you did there and I like the video. I actually put it in my Youtube FAV.

Thanks

I know it's late but its so amazing!

I can't believe it's only HC and flame moss in that tank.

Hey! Can you post pictures and provide details on how you set up your lily pipes? i.e: pipe dimensions, tube sizes, etc. I'm looking into buy it =] I'm really inspired by your tank!

What kind of digital timer do you use? I cant seem to find a good one, and I am trying to replicate the same affect with the lighting. Your scape is sick!

I just came upon your post.

May I say Divine. I turned some classical music on and began to look at each every picture. I took time to enjoy the first right to the end.

Incredible.

May I ask a few questions being a noob to the hobby.
When you said you cranked up the co2, how many BPS for how long? Time during each day and how long as a period of time?

What is your light wattage?

I am planning to create a shrimp habitat in a 29G Long. I plan to use dirt with some form of gravel cover to hold the down the dirt.

Oh yes Cudos to your workmanship and attention to detail, I love your esthetics under the cabinet. EXCELLENT well done...
