Nice tank! I actually wanted to get this tank, but GLA was sold out of it just after the new year, so I got an ADA Mini-M instead. I'm also dry-starting HC like you, but doing glosso instead of DHG. Let's see how our tanks turn out!

I got the tank for xmas. I like it. Ive never owned an ada tank so I guess I have nothing to compare it too. I was debating on doing glosso, or maybe ug. But I went with dhg because I thought it might look better around the wood.

I love th driftwood. It was a great find for me and I bought it even though I had nowhere to put it yet.

So its been almost a month since planting. In the first two weeks I had a bunch of hc die. The remaing hc started to gow pretty well and I have been trimming and replanting it into the spots where it died off. So far pretty happy with it. As for the dhg it hasnt grown at all. Not sure why. About a weeks ago I took some out and seperated it into smaller clumps seeing if that would make a difference.
This is about two weeks after planting. At this point it started growing after the die off.

I have an aquatek regulator in the mail. I won it on ebay cheap. I also have a new eheim 2211 cycling on my 50. I cant wait to fill this tank in. Thinking maybe the dhg might grow if I just fill it up and crank co2.

Well its been awhile since I updated this. Ive been real busy. Had a lot of issues with water changes I t he beginning. I ended up loosening up and havi g to replant a lot of the hc. It was a pain. The dhg never did do well so I took it all out. I replaced it with some rotala in the back and hygro compact in the front of tree. Over all I think it looks a lot better. Im getting a little bba and gsa but nothing uncontrolable. I still need to get some lilypipes. The green ehiem tubes are a bit of an eye sore. Will post pics soon

Oh and I have two very tiny very cure zebra killifish in there. Had a pair of chocolate killis but the famale ended up munching on a bunch of my shrimp. Needless to say she lost the priveledge of having a tank to herself and now she is lost in the 50 with all the other fish.
