ADA glass is like fiber optic! I love how the glass edge shines.

i made this tank really low maintenance now, lighting is only 6hrs. i water change and fertilize about once a month and trim maybe every 3 months. everything is so much easier than before... believe it or not i havnt cleaned the glass pipes in about 3 months.

Still a great looking tank.

Other than trying to win contests I don't see the long term appeal of super high maintenance tanks.

I think it's when the tinkering and trimming becomes more of a hobby than as "work" or "maintenance", then it's a stress reliever. Just like gardening or bonsai.

I can spend an afternoon doing a water change, cleaning the glass up, and trimming plants and it feels rewarding.

nope its just 2mm gravel completely inert with nothing else in it.

i'm bringing this tank to work tomorrow for Subscape Aquarium's Re-launch event. It's going to stay there so i can setup a new one at home.
Here's a video done with a friend of mine, the music is by me and another mate:

much better in 720p
