^^^ looking good! Mine still looks the same. haha. I added some fiss on the wood, but other than that nothing new on mine. That was the plan though. This tank is at work and I can't/don't have the time for it.

Neato. I should try and sync up the design flow between two adjacent tanks, such as making it appear that the driftwood goes form one tank to the other.. coolness.

Yeah, I was thinking of cutting up a piece of wood and leaning them against both sides of each tank to make it appear as one connected piece.

I'm going to pull over more moss to the left one and some of the pogostemon erectus to connect it better.

head over to http://www.tropica.com/en/plants/plant-list-a-z.aspx

see whatcha like, make sure it's low-light compatible, draw your plans out in two dimensions, and give it a shot.

Kiran, just read your Mini S thread, very nice. I'm sure, by what I read, it was impressive.

I can't expect mine will be so amazing.

I've got a tank I'm quite literally going to transfer everything from.

I should get the tank tomorrow, and I'll spend some time reading directions and considering how to aquascape it. I'll probably start with my 'mobile' moss carpet which grew together quite nice, moss balls and arranging some of my column plants. I eventually want to grow out something on drift wood, but I wont receive a spec-sized-piece until next week.

Since I'm adding gravel, filter media and plants from another tank. After I've seen its full cycle, can I just add my shrimp? I presume it will have a sufficient bio-film built up from its time in the 5g.

A quick question for fellow spec peeps out there: How often do you change the carbon filter media? How about that other media it came with? Anyone using something different (better?) than the stock media/ sponge?

Oh and a couple of pics to make sure the thread doesn't go off-track!

Hey Dan, I wouldn't really use the carbon media. It is in my tank just because I've been too lazy to take it out. But if you're dosing ferts, it'll stop those from working 100%.

I also wouldn't change the media it came with. Someone can correct me here, but they're such integral parts of the biological filter, it'd cause a mini cycle for sure.

I've attached photos of my spec after things have grown in a bit. I need to propagate and replant a little, but everything is doing great lol.
