(2) 17.1g Mr. Aqua Setups- My First Journal


I thought I would start my first journal and share with you all, let me know what you think.

Aquarium - (2) 17.1g Mr. Aqua
Substrate - (2) ADA Amazonia
Lighting- (2) Archaea Slim-Pro LEDs
Filtration - (2) Eheim 2213

Substrate Additives - ADA Bacter 100, Benibachi Mironekuton Powder, Genchem Beta-G
Hardscape - Manzanita Branches and Yamaya Stones (Not in Picture)
Plants - Java Fern attached to Manzanita Branches and Ceramic Cultivation Plates for semi-carpet and Subwassertang will be interlaced with Yamaya stones.

This is the very beginning stages, I should be receiving the Yamaya stones today or tomorrow. I will finish setup this weekend and post a picture of the results. We will go from there. I plan to house Taiwan Bees in one aquarium and PRL CRS in the other.

I really like this idea with the hardscapes mirroring each other. Can't wait to see them planted. Looks great!

I received my Yamaya Stones last night. I tried several different hardscapes and variations with the stones, but ultimately this is what I came up with. Let me know your thoughts. Stay tuned for more updates as we complete this process together.

Thanks DownShift, I thought it would be something different and unique. Even though it doesn't follow the golden rule.

The tank has been planted and filled. Let me know what you think. Thanks for your feedback everyone!

Plants:
Subwassertang added to the base of each Manzanita Wood piece.
Java Moss tied on several branches of the Manzanita Wood
Java Moss added to Ceramic Cultivation Plates to begin partial moss carpet
Frogbit added to soak up excess nutrients

Filtration:
Eheim 2213 added to both aquariums
Stainless Steel Filter Guard added to Eheim 2213 intakes

Very cool set up. And I like the idea of putting 2 tanks together in contrast. Will you use any sponge filters for the shrimps later?
