Galaxy rasboras will look nice. I like the clean look with the lily pipes and no thermometer or heater visible. What will the background plant be?

They look more like they would in nature I would think.

While I myself don't like growning HC (it's such a pain to trim!), I love seeing it in beautiful tanks like this.

Are all those bubbles CO2 or are they the residual gas from a newly-filled tank? If it's the former, wow!

Nice tank. Keep the updates frequent!

Thanks UG
I wish it was all bubbles from pearling but some of those shots were taken just after a WC.

Ammo is still at 4 ppm

this tank has a TON of character, very mono tone in its own right, but the rocks add just the right splash of character! i freaking LOVE this tank.

Thanks Fish, I wanted something very simple with this tank. I can't wait for the HC to fill in.

How many liters of soil did you end up using. I'm ordering the mini-m and dont' know if the 3 liter bag is enough.
