Well I have a filter cleaning on a 2217 coming up on the 13th so that works out perfect I can steal some bio media and the nasty old fine filter pad should do the trick, thanks.

No problem man. Should work quickly for such a small tank too.

FWIW, I also dont use a heater on my tanks. I have found that they breed faster at room temps. I keep my heat @ 68*.

I put together some pieces of manzanita that were broken off a larger piece I just purchased on line, I used the 4 smallest pieces and a couple of wire ties and I will touch up the bottom tomorrow on the grinder so it's nice and flat.

Thanks, I thought it turned out nice too and I like the fact it will stick out of the water a little too.

I got my new Nano tank today and the filter, they were both a mess so got out the Exacto knife and went to work on the nasty silicone job, the got to work on the filter with Chlorox and Q-tips.

Here's some excess silicone, good thing it wasn't a bigger tank.


These are after some cleaning but more will get done tomorrow


I've got it set up in the kitchen and it still need work on some calcium build up on the glass and I'm soaking the driftwood, more pics tomorrow.

Of all that work you're putting in to remove the excess silicon did you consider just rerimming that sucker entirely?

Yeah I thought about it, but decided not to. I like some of the rimless tanks and have one in mind but I'm not hung up on only having a rimless tank and as you'll see this tank will never be in "Good Tanks & Gardens" but I did want a clearer look with out 1/2 smears of silicone up the corners or it oozing out from under the rim both inside and out.

Here is thr Nano with the new light and moon light shown at night, I'm going to use small low light plants, no C02, no ferts, but I'm not sure this light will grow Mosses, Crypt Green Gecko, and maybe Affinis.



The light appears to be btight in the center but if you'll notice how it's tilted down and thr right side has a shadow, it does this to both sides when leveled.

OMG!!! It really exists! I am so excited. I love these little 2.5 gallon tanks, and think I need to set up another one.
