No worries. It's still great to see other people's work

Definitely make a journal. That setup is nice. I'd love to learn about how you built it and all.

Update.

Algae really took off on my Java Ferns, but I'm letting it in there for now for my shrimp to eat.

I added some Dwarf SAG in the back left from my main tank this week. Noticing new growth the past two weeks on my Argentine Sword.

I put a piece of Water Sprite in the bank corner for some depth, it may only be there temporarily. I had some Pogostemon Erectus in the tank, but it all melted. Disappointed because I liked the plant, but most of it fell apart within days and the rest within about 2 1/2 - 3 weeks.

I am looking for another taller piece of driftwood to add, and plan to add an Anubias Petite with it.

Just picked up one of these tanks this week. Going through this thread has given me a lot of hope for a tiny tank.

Update. I added some dwarf hairgrass in the front. I may break it down into 2 or 3 smaller clumps. Dwarf SAG in the back left corner has it's first runner off the main plant. Argentine sword is slowly growing in the front.

I am hopefully getting an anubias petite this week, but am still looking for another small piece of driftwood. Once I get that I plan to remove the water lettuce and more of the duckweed. Have had two batches of RCS hatch in the past several weeks as well.

Can anyone tell me a good heater for this tank and where to put it? I tried the Marina C10 and it didnt raise the temp of my tank even 1 degree. I have it in my office at work and during the weekeds they cut off the heat in here and it will drop to 70 or lower.
