25cm^3


I'm terrible with journals but I'll try to keep this one going ^_^

Tank is an Aqua pro 25cm from Francis Xavier (grab one today! >.O)

I don't know...Maybe cos it's my first ever legit rimless tank.... but it's soooo sexy....

Day 1
Didn't love the light at all


Started off with this.... but found it lacking....


Added some peacock moss on lava rock


Decided to add just one more rock...




Day 2

originally I wanted a HM carpet... but after reading about successful lowtech HC carpets I decided I wanted to give HC a go, fortunately I had enough from my emmersed to seed from.



Going to give star grass a try as well. Move the HM to the back ~

Seeing this from the front angle, I like it even more now. I like where your going with this. I think hair grass would be a good choice for the back left corner. Are you doing HM as foreground as well?

Is your hairgrass already in its emmersed form? How does it do transitioning from emmersed to submersed. I have some but it's in it's submersed form. I want to plant it now. Along with HC.

That's what I'm worried about. I've done it it with some stems but not hairgrass. It's probably fine.

The more the better I think. It will be quicker to fill in and will have a better chance when you flood....eventually!

You love those teeny tiny tanks. They do look great though. I think you should add a crypt to the back left instead if hair grass IMO. or some ludwigia.
