Awesome growth. I hope my recently planted hair grass will look half as good as yours, Cheers.

To be honest, it's actually not as difficult as it seems when it comes to hairgrass. Mine's mainly due to the added ferts and co2 that I've been adding to the tank. Not to mention the lack of algae since my last major problem (I really hope it doesn't come back ). But good luck with your growth! If you have any problems with it, let me know!

So I moved into my new apartment in Richmond so I can get ready for the upcoming semester. Tore down the 10 gallon and switched over to a 20 gallon long in its place. Derimmed it as well and started adding water. It's doing fine at the moment while the fish are in a bucket. I've added a filter to their bucket as well since I'm sure they'll be in there for a decent amount of time.

I ordered some driftwood a while back from Tom Barr so that's been added to the tank. It's still buoyant so I've added stones to weigh them down for the time being.

Not sure how to plant this though. Still trying to figure out plant layouts. Any ideas?

Sorry about the wait. College was getting to me and I had a lot of work to do. Picked up a work study job to get myself a little extra money for funds too. Asides from that, it also took me a while to get wifi set up for my apartment. Much hassle...Here's a shot of the tank as is. Driftwood finally sunk down and finally in place.



This is only temporary. I'm going to fix up the tank a bit more once the shipments on a new filter and substrate come in. Ordered some S.T international aquasoil and a eheim 2215 filter. Never had an eheim before so this will be new .

I'm going for the nature aquarium approach, so let's see how this goes.

I think it looks awesome!! You've accomplished the natural look very well :3. Looking forward to the plants growing in.

How are you liking the e series? I might get one for my 60p...

Me too. I'm trying to figure out what plants to put in the back to make it look nicer.

I think it works great. Excellent light, I'm able to lower the intensity to the amount I want. I'm planning to eventually raise it so I can set it at it's max PAR. At night, I set the settings to the green and blue LEDs to "5" and the others to 0 to give it a nice moonlight glow. At night it looks amazing.

Don't think it can be seen really well, but this is what the tank looks like in the dark. Definitely a lot nicer looking in person.

Are you running the 24" model?

Looks like you are getting good coverage. Are you wanting for light at the edges or see plants reaching inward for the light?

Nice looking tank! What's your moonlight setting? I'm using 0 for white and 3 across the board for the others.

Also, moonlight is very hard to take a photo of unless you have a DSLR that can do high ISO with low noise. If you have a tripod, you can do longer exposures, so you don't have to go crazy high ISO.
