Ray's 12 Gallon Loooooooong Journal | DIY ADA Stand | UG Planted! (3/16)


It's been one week since I planted the UG. Looks like it settling very well.



I manage to get the light exactly 12" above the substrate. I should have 80 par. Will make another poorman's method to raise the light when flooded lol.

It's been a year since I start this tank. This tank really teaches me patience!

Wow! That's nice! One of these day I hope to try UG. Can't wait to see it flooded and waving in the flow.

Yes sir indeed! I live in a city where there are a lot of Indonesian people here so there's a market for it. I'm pretty sure typical asian sea/ fish market have indomie boxes $9 each.
