Hey this looks really nice! Neat to see too because I just started a tank journal this week with my Fluval Spec V! Check mine out here if you're interested...

Mountain & Valley Shrimp Tank - Fluval Spec V

Looking forward to watching your progress!

Update:

Came home from work to find that the fish have uprooted the hc Cuba. I have decided to re home the fish and re plant the plants but this time not to introduce fish til the plants are fully established. Lesson learnt lol

Replacement bubble counter arrived. co2 now set up and running at 3 bps. Do I need more or less for a 5g tank?

This is getting annoying now. The co2 tubing keeps popping off the glass diffuser. is it safe to superglue the tube onto glass?

Not updated for a while, here goes:



Moss, hc and dwarf grass doing well. I changed the stock lighting and use co2. I had a problem with dwarf algae but think I have that under control now.

Cherry shrimps and bumble bee snails seem happy. Any suggestions on nano fish I could use?
