Whenever Frank ships me the substrate additives I'll get the rock laid out. Then I need to do the plant order (pending on what plants Frank ships me as well, but I'll probably just do next day air from aquariumplants.com since I'm becoming so eager to get this thing going). After that, everything is usable on a functional level. The Mini V-1 inflow will be here probably mid week after next as well as the clear tubing so it'll be smooth sailing from there.

P.S. Post more 20C shots!

Looks it's doing quite well. I love the wild look of it for some reason...maybe it's the hydrocotyle...love that plant.

Yes. Yes. YES. I can't wait to see the scape for this. You'll love that light. High clarity glass?

Here it is


The Aquasky is AMAZING, its so bright! and everything just looks incredible under it. Im thinking of replacing the Limniophila Aramotica and Lindernia sp. India on the left and just doing all butterfly rotala. Let me know what you guys think.

20cm

The new Mini M looks beautiful. I'll be setting mine up tomorrow! The AQUASKY really makes everything pop. The 20C is looking great as well. Can't wait to see the Mini M grow in!

Also, out of curiosity: I see the CO2 line and BC, but nothing going into the tank. Are you running an in-line or do you just not have it hooked in yet?

Thanks Freph! I am eager to see how everything grows under the Aquasky too.

I haven't set it up because my paintball tank is out of co2 and last time I tried to get it filled at the store, the filler was broken. I need to set it up asap though. lol

No bueno. Hopefully the light doesn't cause many algae issues in the absence of CO2. That glosso and riccia foreground is gonna look great. Hopefully some of the hairgrass you have will intermingle and give it a more wild, natural look as well. Judging from the substrate in the foreground, either you and the glosso had a small dispute or the filling didn't go as smooth as planned!

rofl yea it was a little of both its been bugging me i need to fix it but i wanna let the glosso root first. Ill have the co2 running again tonight.
The hairgrass will send runners out so from my experiences it should give that exact wild look im looking for . BTW my plants are already pearling. This light is great! Ive only had the light on for maybe 2 hours

I like it! So you're pushing 2 ADA tanks, and 1 Do!Aqua tank now?! Lucky!

The size of the 20cm very much appeals to me. So does the price, $38 if I recall correctly?

Thanks Kiran, Yep pretty much but the Mini S is sitting empty under my desk. I might rescape it in a month or so, after the initial maintence period is done with the M. I must say I do like the size of the M much better than the S.

Yea its 38 bucks, but I bought mine used. Its an awesome tank you should get one
