If a turkey baster seems like too much work, start a siphon from a slightly higher source with airline tubing to the corner of the tank, you can regulate the flow all the way down to a trickle if you put a knot in the tubing, similar to drip acclimating fish, you could start the siphon at a fast drip or slow flow, and then leave it for a while to slowly rise, not as much babysitting that way

quick shot as of this morning.
it's been a little over a month and i don't know, i think it looks just 'ok'..

i think the fact this tank is right next to an AC, it probably affected the humidity level. Not that the AC was on, but i still feel some cold air coming in through the vents. Not enough to adjust the room temperature, but enough to affect the humidity of this tank.

I'm thinking about putting in some plants in the rear corners.. like a red lotus or some crypts i have. My CPDs need a tank with some coverage and this is the only one i have left to do so.. it'll sorta ruin the flow of the setup but I like my CPDs more.

anyone know where i can get some Pseudomugil gertrudae?

UPDATE 3.8.13





been running for about 3 weeks now. and while my intention was to create something unique by intergrowing anubias nana and moss, in retrospect i don't think it was a good idea.

not happy with the setup so will be tearing it down and rescaping tomorrow.

i got some bbq lava rocks so i may be experimenting with those also along with the dw.

other than that, i'm finally pressurized co2! so pretty excited about that.
