Thanks! But the strange kind of sense of depth I think would be far from possible in a tank, albeit a small one.
So you're thinking like an island layout but instead of sand HC/UG, and in the front corners rock piles to create depth?

^ Hhaha I appreciate the drawing!!! Thanks!

Something like that, with like a mountain of plants in the middle.

I got some love from Swagelok today, freebies!

LED: Getting some pearling with the lights, more so than the CFL. I got high hopes! I found a nice mixture of colours that is easy on the eyes. The overwhelming purple was caused by the blue led, there was two "blue" leds which confused me on why I was seeing a marine look on my tank.

Sadly, the plants pearl more with the blue ramp high than low. It could be just my eyes seeing more bubbles because of the blue. I'm digging the new mixture but it's too early to tell on growth.

I'll have the full review up soon instead of these mini updates.

My blyxa flowered! I'm selling a batch of my blyxa to a local buyer and found out as I was packing it. There were two stems that flowered, pretty nice don't you think?




As the day draws to an end, the sun-set effect the LEDs has looks pretty neat on my tank.



I forgot I had those two rocks to the left, they were always covered by the blyxa.
