Preparing my bigger aquarium (DSM)

Hi Everyone,

I started my preparation work for my future 20-30 gallon tank. I was using a 2.5 gal tank to grow Eleocharis Parvula (Dwarf Hairgrass). The reason I used a 2.5 gal to began was because buying several pot of DHG can be costly for my bigger tank to start with. Secondly, this was my first attempt to use DSM for DHG, just want to test it out and lower my risk for my bigger tank in the future. Hopefully this will turn out to be great. All of your advises and comments will be great appreciated, as this will benefit myself and someone who is starting to learn about the aquascaping. For information about Dry Start Method, you can easily find good resources through the internet.

In case you wonder why there is a blue bubble tea straw at the top. That's for my manual CO2 injection in the morning before I leave home to work. LOL Thinking of doing a DIY CO2 injection for this. Do you guy think it's necessary for better plant grow? Please leave your comments. I will try to do update once a week, wish me luck people
