its actually a co2 system i bought years ago at the lfs, http://www.marineandreef.com/Red_Sea...FUQw4AodLy4AlQ

iits pretty much a diy co2 system that diffuses the gas through the power head. when i first got into fish tanks that what the guy at the pet store told me to get lol and ive used it ever since.

but it def help circulation quite a bit make i nice current the goes around the tank with the opposing outputs

Got some friends for the 10g tonight! 10 maculata rasboras, 12 wild green neons, and 5 pigmy corries should be great additions to the tank. ill post up more pics once they are done acclimating and in the tank. and an update on the 20G capped the florite with play sand a couple nights ago. changed the whole look of the tank.

Both tanks are so beautiful, you make me want to start a smaller tank with micros for my office. Love the choice in fish!

Where did you purchase the fish?

so, i wasn't happy with how my 20g layout was coming along and did a total rescape last night. After 3 hours and a bunch of sand later, i came to my new product. The fish seem much happier with the new swimming space and im happy with the final product. might need some adjustments with the stem plants but other wise not much else to do but wait. tho i might want to add some hair grass in the for ground. ill post pics in a few minutes.
