6 hours later, 12G long Established


Critique welcomed. I was able to save all of the HC Cuba. Am using all new substrate, the old ones had a lot of glass in it. I just laid the HC mat right on top and pushed it in a bit, going through another DSM till they root, probably 4 weeks I am hoping this time, since I am not waiting for them to spread.
Wow. Lucky no one got hurt. But definitely a beautiful transition over. Looks very natural and love how you came up with that in just 6 hours. Definitely worth sharing. Good luck! If you use sand, I believe you need to give it root tabs because HC could definitely use that to flourish. Keep us posted with the progress and welcome to the club!

Still looks beautiful as always. Hard to describe the look but really loving the shaded areas

I am planning on equipment for when I flood my DSM. Would it be enough flow if I use the jet nozzle with a Rena XP3 (350gph)?

Contemplating on whether I need to rig up a tank length spray bar... The outlet of the filter will have Ista Max Mix Reactor and hydor heater inline heater mixed in so flow rate will definitely be less than 350gph.

It's 13lbs of petrified wood that I bought from an aquarium shop, I made sure to grab all the small pieces they had to compliment the larger central rocks.

13 days in











I used AnotherHobby's tip of turning off the filter for a while to allow for cleaner full tank shots and had some nice pearling. Here's a quick video of the rainbows playing in it.

Petrified wood can be problematic, but not always. It can raise TDS, and release minerals into the water. Just a heads up.

DIY 36" spray bar.

I wanted a tank length spray bar to distribute CO2/flow better throughout the tank. Bought a 36" 1/2" OD clear PVC tube and drilled 3/32" holes an inch apart. Perfect flow speed for the Rena Filstar XP3 (350 GPH)


Got the clear PVC from here: 3 dollars with free shipping! http://www.lnt.com/product/aquarium-...ing-clear.html

Comes in the most ridiculously oversized box


For tutorial, check out my 12G Long Journal

I just paid $3.99 a pound for a piece last night. Then today got a box full of great pieces (almost 50 lbs worth) free from a friend in a local planted tank club.

$6/lb was the regular price but I got it during a 50% off sale, so about $40.

Great tanks and great thread.

Just an update pic. Changed a few minor things with the major being the switch from HC to e.belem as my foreground.
