MiSo,
Yes, that's what I meant by driftwood tips, I have the same driftwood in my 'unscaped' at the moment 120g, this is the tank I am waiting on to get a BML fixture. I am really diggin' that moss, what an original idea for attaching it, thanks for getting back Also your pictures are amazing to show growth, I am really impressed.

I'm really impressed with the tanks so far. They put my tank to shame! I really can't wait until my tank ages a bit more. Even though it's 2 months old, I constantly change it and it's been a week since I last rescaped it so I'm going to try to keep my hands off and let it grow for a while.

Good job so far though guys. Four members so far isn't too bad. One of the main reasons I started this club was to make others aware of these awesome fixtures.

Here's my setup. I have a 36 inch Dutch 6300 with dimmer switch. Great light.

I just added the manzanita today and did a major cut down on the stems so it's a little empty right now.

It is a royal blue tiger shrimp tank(pretty pricey shrimp, not sure if they are available in your country). My tank is for shrimp breeding first and aesthetics second, I believe sponge filters are a crucial part of a shrimp tank. I normally remove the sponge filter for pics but I just snapped a quick one when i saw this last night.
Great tanks buy the way guys! So happy people are buying their fixtures. BML is one of the best companies i have ever dealt with for anything. Also stoked they are getting more into the planted aspect, they were just starting out with them when i bought mine.

I was actually going to message you about this. You really should post some pics. You showed me a few at Oleg's house but I think that was when you first started it.

Here is my 29 gal with a 6300k BML 90 degree strip. I might be getting a second strip to help with my HC growth. Everything else seems to be going well. Started this tank in late July.

Do you have two Koralia's or just one? I see a black magnet looking end on the front and thought that might be another.

I run a Koralia Nano 240 on the left side of my tank which points down. The right side has my lily pipe so i figure this makes a nice circular flow. I've been curious if I should add another nano myself.

Also, I'm digging the hanging poles behind the tank. Did you make that or buy it? Can you give details?
