However the low light is the one I find the most relaxing.
My wife always bugs me about my high tech and asks me why the low tech always looks good. I tell her it's because there is nothing to mess up. She knows that's something of interest to me, haha, so it's kind of funny that as much as she hates my high tech right now, I need something to mess up and rebuild consistently.

this is clean and inspiring... the cabinet under my tank is so much messier than this, need to find some brackets for my hoses like you have.

Looking better. Needs a background though. Maybe white or black posterboard?

Tony, I really like it. I had Africana before not too long ago in my GLA and AquaTop cube, but this is my first time with the powder type. I must say, I really like the look of it, both in color and in granule size. At first I couldn't justify the added cost to go powder, but since I got sent the wrong bag of AS from AFA, they hooked me up on a good deal. I need to test my parameters ASAP to see if it's even leaching any ammonia. I've read that Africana buffers better than Amazonia and doesn't leach much ammonia. I might be able to stock my tank sooner than later if that's the case.
