Great layout. I really like the placement of the stones and the slope is crazy. I can't wait to watch it develop.

how many hours do you have the light on? i'm only guessing without a par meter but it looks like high light to me.
I haven't re-checked on the timers but i think that the light is ~9h at weekdays and one or two more hours on weekend.

Another update.

This one is a video about the first maintenance, eight days after the start. It's mainly a partial water change (the third one).

Enjoy.

This week update:

HM reacted very well to the trimming of last week.
Yesterday photo:



Eight days ago it was like this (trim day for HM):



A video about trimming and maintenance of this aquarium:


And now FINALLY new fish
92 Tetra Ember (Hyphessobrycon amandae)
Here it is a first photo. Not great but they are still very small (<1 cm) and their colors are still preatty washed out.
I hope that in 3 months their color turns more redish.



Pedro.

Following photos are better to see how small they still are - well, they're 1 cm and will be 2 cm
(gave them food to spread around)
