New Nano Planted


This tank finished cycling, so I added a few white clouds. Crypts, anubias, and java fern are doing well. The chain sword...not so much. And I added this driftwood with some kind of moss yesterday...

That looks really nice. How do you like the Finnex Ray 2? I have a Finnex FugeRay 20 on Spec V and it is doing a surprisingly good job of keeping my plants healthy.

It's a handy idea but the trouble is the reactor for me was too big and bulky. Plus the refills are a little expensive. I think I paid 14 for three refills. Which doesn't seem too bad but they do run out fairly quick. I also had a few issues with the valve leaking. Fluval replace them so it's not too bad. I quickly upgraded to a refillable setup and just kept the mini 20 for back up. It's way cheaper in the long run doing that. Hope this helps.
I read that you do not have to buy the Fluval refills. Not sure if that makes it much less expensive.

I really like this light JimmyZ. The plants are doing ok, but I haven'r really had a steady setup from the start. I keep moving things around. I think Im finished...so stay tuned.

It is actually way too powerful for this little shallow tank so I moved it to about 8 inches off the surface of the water. 7 hrs on with DIY CO2. The rest of the time off.

I believe the UltraRay2 and FugeRay have different amoung of LEDs per foot. I believe the UltraRay2 has more PAR than the FugeRay, but the FugeRay has the Moonlights.

This would be worth your while to check out.

I love this scape! I particularly like the "valley" area, it really adds depth

Default the crypt airstone

My crypts are producing tiny, constant bubble streams right now...and my brand new (added 02/27/2013) h. glomeratus is pearling. Must be doing something right. Has anyone ever witnessed the crypt airstone? Pretty cool. I tried to get a picture of it, but my phone couldn't capture it...maybe if I got enough requests, I'd go dig out the DSLR.
