Mike's 10 Gallon rimless

I finally decided on a scape so here we go with the journal. It wasn't easy since I never scaped with DW.
I'm happy I found my stones at the local nursery at 15 cents/lb that cost me $1.28. Planted all the DHG to begin the dry start method.
I might consider going the Fishneedit 70 watt MH but this might be overkill. I just love the looks of MH lights.

Tank: Standard 10G De-rimmed
Lights: 2 13watt CFL suspended from DIY metal stand
Filter: 2213 Eheim w/ aquamagic FLO 13mm Lily pipes
Heater: 200 watt, 1/2" Hydor ETH In-Line
Substrate: Play Sand w/ Osmocote fert tabs
CO2: Pressurized 20oz Paintball Setup w/ Up Aqua Co2 Regulator
(soon will be replacing paintball with #5 canister)

Current Flora:
Eleocharis acicularis (DHG)

Future Flora:
Anubias barteri
Anubias nana
Microsorum pteropus (java Fern)

Future Fauna: Definitively not snails!
Might get some RCS. open for suggestions.

It was kinda dry when the pic was taken last night. I dredged it this morning. I have to spray a litttle more on the right side because of the slope.

So I got a little impatient with the DHG growing. Decided to fill it up today. And My Flo lily pipes from evil bay just arrived. Their good quality but just a little too big for a 10 gallon.

Added Some java fern, and some weeping moss to the DW. still need to get
Anubias nana, and Anubias barteri.

Lookin' good. The intake looks fine but the outtake could probably be a bit smaller. Maybe get a real ADA one which comes in sizes that are smaller.
