Here is mine, all low-tech, stock. Have some sponges ordered to block to filter holes in the back and RCS should ship out on Monday.

Well, I lucked out and found a Spec on clearance for $29 at Petsmart, and with my $5 off coupon it came out to a great price. I'm waiting for substrate and other items to arrive Saturday to plant it, but stopped by the LFS today to grab some plants. I came home with crypt parva, crypt lutea, narrow leaf anubias, and dwarf pennywort. I'm pretty sure the first three will be fine with the stock light, but will the pennywort work? Half of the research I've done says it wants high light and co2, other sites say low light is fine, it will just grow slow. The latter is a bonus for nano tanks, as far as I'm concerned...

Pictures will be up when planted.

Set this up about five days ago. Trying the DSM. This was going to work for my desk but I picked up the last one they had on clearance and that one is going to work. Using Stratum substrate with the Fluval PLC13 clip on light. Seen some growth in the few days its been planted.

Could have been just that sample, they only had one on the shelf.

Mines coming along nicely. Swapping out the factory light for the PC Fluorescent made a huge difference.
