Stef didn't want to post this pic of her tank. She's embarrassed. She thinks it's badly in need of a trim.

That doesn't stop ME from posting it though.



I think it looks awesome.

Current specs: 10G, Flourite Black substrate, 2x 6500K spiral CFLs providing medium light, dual Aquaclear 20 HOBs, standard Excel dosage, heavily modified EI. One HOB is being used to diffuse about 15ppm CO2 from a single 2L DIY bottle, which lasts three weeks. The setup is stable and isn't affected by CO2 fluctuations.

Thanks Sean! Maybe Stef won't be too upset with me now. Your tank looks great too! I also like the way you put together the video, it's got class.

Thank you, AquaAurora.
As long as Darkcobra takes care of the water parameters for me, and post the umpteen zillion photos I take (not very good on puter doins'), It's all good

Thanks, Stef! The tank looks great for the holidays!!! Greetings and Merry Christmas from the longest island in the U.S.
Here's a picture from another famous island that's near Long Island.

I love your tank.

I was thinking of making a sand pathway when I set mine up but I like the slate idea instead. I think I'm going to have to steal your idea!

Funny, RWaters, that doesn't look like Whidbey Island
Very festive pretty photo. I was going for the "Christmas Card Feel"
with my photo. Although they are 2 very different environments, the
colors, mood, and tone are there.

Thank you, Kntry,
Yes, the slate pathway is still there, but lost in the lawn that needs mowing. I
keep saying that but haven't had the heart to take scissors to it much since it
took so long to grow and get lush. It has been pretty easy to maintain. Periodic
settling is the only thing I've came across. Easy enough to align the puzzle pieces,
though.

I'm thinking the dark slate on dark substrate is more forgiving than if it was dark on light. Keep that in mind for future scapes. Also, the added cory cats are a Godsend
in keeping the pathway swept. I should of added them at the get-go

Posting a few pics of the first time "lawn mowing" and to show I do try to keep up on the ever changing scape:



Trying to train the hydrocotyle to outline the walkway and carved a tunnel over the path:



Cory keeping the path swept:



Cory lawn patrol:



Look at it unfettered now, because the Mardi Gras eyesores will be going in in the next couple weeks
