I didn't use the whole 9 liters of Amazonia, but almost. Maybe 2 cups or so left.
I spent a long time looking for the right hardscape. Got lucky with that stump.

Tank is around $65 from MarineDepot plus shipping. Light from Catalina was $100 shipped. It would have been cheaper, but I added the moonlights.

Thanks. I've tried to only put smaller scaled plants in. That's why I'm not so crazy about the needle leaf java. It just seems too big.

Maybe you should take out the needle fern and put in blyxa japonica. I have a lot of stems of it so if i go to Syracuse sometime, i can meet up and give you some stems...

I really like the size and look of this tank. As others have said and I will say again the stump is perfect in this tank. Hope your algae clears up soon!

This tank is sweet! Love the hard scape. Hope you can deal with the algae. It should go away once everything balances and ages.

Thanks. I need to get some current pictures up here. I guess I've been lacking...

Nope, just been enjoying my tank.

I was mostly successful with the algae wars. I ended up dosing Excel to get rid of the thread algae, and there's just ever so little BBA starting to show up on the rocks. But I've been dosing with RootMedic for quite a while, and the growth has been just staggering. Maybe too much growth at times!

Until I get some full tank shots on the computer, here's a couple of the right side I took to try to sell some peacock moss. No bites yet...

Beautiful tank! I am about to order the same tank and also would like to place it on a sofa table. Iwould really appreciate it if you could include a few photos of your setup from a distance. Would also like to know which lilly pipes from ebay you're using as I recently posted about this in the Equipment section.
Thanks
