Personally this tank looks good no matter what plant you have. The DHG will make a nice background in this iwagami. What livestock are you planning?

Thank you all!

Actually I have 2 otos and 8 Boraras Brigittae in right now. I would add more, but I'm going to be moving in May, so I'm leaving the tank "status quo" for the time being.

I see you ran into the same problem with riccia that I did. It's such a nuisance. Don't be afraid to trim the HC lower btw. The lower you go the healthier the lower regions of it will stay.

Little update: (not going keep counting the weeks. )
Not much has changed, no real problems, just enjoyment!
However, I will be moving in May, so this tanks day's are numbered. This is an opportunity for growth though- I am planning to retire the 45-f and upgrade to a 60-f, which is very exciting. Along with this I will be getting a Solar II light, ADA ferts, and other goodies. I may just end up selling the 45-f, or I'll save it for a second tank (nano-reef??), depending on how much room I'll have.

Some pictures:

^^ Agreed! It was informative and inspirational... Thanks for sharing!

We just got a 60-F a couple weeks ago. This thread had a little influence in that purchase. Would love to see what you would do with it if you get it as well.

I'm really glad to hear you guys enjoyed the progress of this tank. I know I have learned a lot. I already have a couple plans brewing for my upcoming project!

I thought I'd add some more pictures as the tank reaches it's completion. It's really wonderful to just not have problems in a tank- no algae, no dying fish or plants, no shoddy equipment giving way. It's worth it all.
Just thought I'd add, my computer is down so I had to edit these on a laptop with a bad monitor, so excuse my pictures if they appear grossly miss-edited.









My OCD is going crazy with all this moving mess in my space

Cleanest tank I've seen! How fast is your co2? I'm all over it. I could stare at it day after day...
Lucky you! You get to!

CO2 is at ~2bps maybe? I sort of eyeball it now that I know my tank pretty well. You can drop by for a visit sometime!

What do you use for external heater?

small wattage I could find was hydor eth 200w, seems like that would fry the tank though that size.

No Heater. I don't even know the temperature.

The HC was getting uneven and messy again, time for another trim!

Before


Trimmed and Messy!


Cleaned up! (Sort of )
