12" cube Mr. Aqua


Got an idea.



Had a few clippings.




Bought a few more.






And later added some shrimp.

Beautiful.
That's JUST what I am looking to do with mine
Where did you get that piece of driftwood?

Thanks for the kind words. The driftwood is from the Mississippi. Given enough walks along the river one can pick up a lot of fantastic pieces, even within the city.

Does the LED bulb bother you when sitting in the room? I have a single cfl over my 12" cube in my living room and I must admit it's a bit annoying as the bulb isn't recessed enough. I was debating doing a PAR30/38 bulb like yours or getting a fugeray

Thanks. There's about a dozen Crystal Red shrimp in there now with 2 Amano's. The Hydrocotyl 'Japan' is growing really fast, almost needs trimmed already under the LEDs.

That's one cool way to weigh down / sink some new driftwood. Looks great!
Send me some of your trimmings!!

$20 shipped. PAR 38, 6000K. I use them on all my terrariums/planted aquariums and even for full sun burst on my marine enclosure.
