rice n curry man's Mini M


tank: mini m
lighting: 18in ray 2
substrate: floramax
filter: zoomed 501

I found the rocks on at a park next to Lake Ontario. I just planted some hc and hairgrass. This is gonna take forever to fill. I wanna do something with the left corner. Tell me what you guys think! I think I'm starting it emmersed but I haven't been having good luck with the hc. You can tell that the front piece is yellowing a little.

i'd lose the rock in the upper right corner, and then maybe rotate your main rock into more of a horizontal, or angled state.

That's a good arrangement. By the way, does the library know you play with dirt and water next to their books?

lol I like how your Fugeray is on your AC20 (it's not a zoomed 501 like you said up top?). It's pretty ghetto setup, and I mean that in a good way. I originally got the 12" for my Mini-M, but it was not long enough so I got the 14" which works out fine.

I had the zoomed but it wasn't enough flow. It's actually an ac30. I like ghetto
