Great vid...Lookin good!

Why did you go with a diffuser instead of a reactor? I'd take advantage of having no inhabitants right now, and crank the CO2 through the roof.

Great start, and awesome vid. What are you using for substrate? I have a 20l with a carpet of repens, and I was thinking about changing to hairgrass. Not to happy with the look of a repens carpet.

Really liking the "production value" given off by the video. It had a very Green Machine-esque feel to it. Can't wait to see how the DHG carpets!

as for the substrate, im using a florite base to get elevation, then floramax on top of that and sifted eco-complete fine grade as the cap.

heres a lengthy video showing the substrate i used for this tank:

First update picture.

Day 5

Ive done two 50% water changes and have started to seed it with bio material from my other tanks to get it cycled quickly so i can get an algae eating crew in there asap. Zero signs of algae at this point, im only running a 5 hour photoperiod, with the Co2 Cranked to around 5bps, that turns the drop checker a very vibrant yellow, no doubt it would be lethal to fish, Taking advantage of the fact that there arent any fish yet.

Looks like all 3 plant species have new growth, and the S Repens and AR Mini that were grown emersed arent showing any signs of stress being in a submersed environment, yet.

thanks for looking!

Sean, are you ever going to diffuse co2 via inline reactor into the canister filter? What are the benefits of picking that over using a diffuser/atomizer?
