Alright, so got the tank and light (found one in the back :P)

Here's the initial layout:


Filled and with a few plants, got to wait til after the holidays to order some of my other plants... still have more rotala and the trident in another tank but I'm too lazy to do it right now



Not really happy with how it looks right now but I'll be playing with some rocks in there and more plants, hopefully it looks good all filled in.

First impressions on the Fluval Stratum though is I think it's 10x better than AS2, didn't cloud hardly at all (what little bit there was cleared up in about 10 minutes) and planting isn't as difficult as everyone said it would be.

Also added a couple of shrimp just to give something to look at for now

Update time!


Having a bit of green dust issues, but other than that it's growing in pretty well, my rotala butterfly isn't as red as I'd like though... more iron maybe?

it's kind of a bad cell phone picture...

Had a kinda high nitrite spike I noticed yesterday, can't find my crystals I threw in there... I can't be sure whether the fluval stratum released anything since I haven't been monitering levels til yesterday.
