I feel like the Cat lady or Joan Rivers of Planted tanks when I compare the first pic with what it looks like now. It's a good thing that rescaping doesn't cost as much as plastic surgery.

Oooops, haven't updated this in awhile. This tank have been through ups an downs.

1. I tried to get rid of scuds by using H2O2 and it killed a bunch of HC.

2. In August I got a current Satellite LED + light.

3. Also, in another attempt to kill of the scuds, I drained most of the water, then poured carbonated water. It got rid of some but of course they are still there.

4. Added more rocks

5. Finally got around and made some DYI intake and outtake pipes.

6. Added some other stems, rotala butterfly, rotala nanjenshan(maybe)

7. And finally enter it in a Local Aquarium Club show and won! But I was the only entrant at the show.

Oh yeah some pics. Sorry about the quality. The pics were took after I filled the tank up.

Ahh. I wish I could, its my job that makes it hard to request the day off for a show. Do you know what kinda tank that square Ada was? I wanna find one.. It was the junior tank next to yours. Very beautiful dimensions
And as far as signing up, I went before the auction nd no one was really there to ask lol. They all seemed occupied setting up for the main events

I really didn't attend the show during it's open hours, I was on a little staycation at Aulani. I set up the tanks on wednesday from 10pm-2am and went back on friday night to break it down.

The ADA tank on the left of the 12 gal was a 45p and the junior tank on the right was a 45f(i think but it didn't have an ADA sticker). I always wanted a 45f or 60f.

I think the next HAS meeting is the first friday of November. Hope to see you there.

Wow, you have that much pearling with NO CO2? What is your dosing schedule and amounts? Are you adding Excel also?

Sorry for the confusion. I think somewhere in this journal I updated I have CO2 with a Cerges' reactor. As for dosing, I does pfertz after water changes and whenever I remember to. I never used excel because of the Mini pellia in the tank.

The tank is pearling like crazy because I took these pictures after I filled it up with water. I took out all the water to transport the tank back home after it was in a local show.

Thanks for looking. Your mini M is a great tank too. I think I might be going for a smaller, and lower maintenance tank in the near future.
