Thanks buddy.. all gone now (read below)

If you want any of those plants let me know. They're all up for grabs. All I'm really keeping are some Erios, and some Japanese Belem, maybe 1 or two other small species if I can work them into my new Iwagumi setup.

I just cut the PVC to the same width as the glass, but be careful doing that, it can create a syphon and the water will spill down to the bottom of the pvc's level.

I only did that as a temporary thing as I have plans to use two pieces of thick clear PVC to do the same job, but look much nicer.

I have decided maybe to use wood only, as it's hard to find thick PVC.




In any case, this tank is now bare and empty. I have pulled EVERYTHING out, including the hardscape, and plan to start completely from scratch.

I let it get overgrown, and neglected it for a while so I decided rather than to nurse it back to health that it was time for a change.

This time I plan to do a complete carpet of Belem Dwarf Hair grass, a few erios, and some mosses/pellia, and only have a few rocks sticking out of it as the hardscape.

The challenge for me will be trying to stick with that plan, as I tend to make things too cluttered. I want this tank to be extremely simple, and as close to a real Iwagumi setup as possible.

It's good to hear that you're rescaping! It kind of funny that my tank's water level is the same as yours.

I bought a paintball Co2 setup from JagedFury here at the forums.. can't wait!!

So, I made a diy acrylic custom (long!) spray bar, to give flow to the whole tank. I also am running an extra filter at one end (Zoomed 501)

Here it is.. Sorry about the bad pics.. took on my phone.




And here's the DIY lily pipe I made for it:





I'll take some more good pics soon. About time for an update anyways!

Thanks

Good luck with the dry start. I can't seem to get it right. I think the key is to air it out frequently.

Japan Micro Hairgrass. It grows less than an inch height, and a full lush lawn.

Some Erios, some repens, and several other plants. Still have not flooded

I never did post a diy on that but if you search you should find plenty.
