10g First Timer


Iíve been lurking here for a while and decided to venture into the aquascape world and start with a 10g tank. Considering the tank size, in the beginning I wasnít sure whether to go low or high tech. I just figured that I would start with DSM and worry about the CO2 system later. Currently Iím in week 6 and along the way I have discovered that in fact I had been leaning towards high-tech from the get go and just didnít realize it. And, should this nano tank work successfully, I might want to work on a bigger tank.

With another 2-3 weeks to go before flooding the tank, Iím prepping for a high tech setup and at the same time taking a crash course through our forums. Thanks to all of your posts, Iíve learned a thing or two about various topics, from external filters, in-line heaters, regulators, to in-tank glass diffuser vs in-line atomizer vs reactor, etc.
Below is my journal, feel free to post comments and I still have a lot to learn; therefore your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
