2.1 Gal pico planted iwagumi


hey guys.

so had some extra perspex lying around. not very thick so did some calcs and measurements and figured i could build i tiny tank for nothing so being the fish lover i am i built it. i then took apart 3 LED lights i had at home wired them in parallel with a old 15W ballast lying around. I then built them into a piece of metallic/plastic kickboard for the bottom of a cupboard i had lying around from a previous project. im using a mixture of flourite red and black earth because it wa the left overs from my other tanks.the result is this and i really like the way it turned out! It only has Hairgrass in it. let me know what you think?

Sweet! First pic makes it look a lot bigger, good dimension between the rock and hairgrass.

Are those 3x 3UPs on the light? Looks like an Aquasky.
