Default Day 1

Added some plants still have HC coming but so far it's looking good. I'm afraid the DHG is going to melt away because of the cold shipping. I'll keep an eye on it if it looks too bad I'll jerk it out.

Default Update 12/26/14

Cleaned tank today and got rid of the melting stuff, everything is looking good.
Love playing with the Satellite LED Plus, you can really make the colors pop!

The tank is coming along VERY nicely. That AR really got a nice deep red to it. Nice pics, too. What camera are you using?

Thanks!

I use a Canon T3i with the nifty 50 lens(great lens for under $100)
Settings:Tv Mode
f/1.8
1/160 sec.
ISO 100

Trying to find a great plant for the left corner. Having issues with algae plus the cyperus likes to melt, but still hanging in there.

Cool man... just getting into photography myself. I was going to buy a Canon, but ended up with a Samsung nx300. My GF has that nifty fifty lens, works great on her Canon (which I borrow occasionally). She just got the 40mm pancake lens. It's super nice.

Anyways, you should try Hemianthus micranthemoides in the corner. It would fill in nice, has a small leaf structure (to help maintain scale), and is easily shaped with some trimming.

Hydrocotyle sp. Japan would be easy for the corner as well.

Or, you can go with dark green like attaching some fissiden fontanus or flame moss to some dark lava stones or SS mesh. They'd look like dark green bushes. The flame moss can be grown tall, which would be cool too.
