Mini M

Hey guys. Here are a couple shots of my ADA Mini M. The first one is the last shot before I redid the tank. The tenellus took over. The second picture is of the new scape. I accidently dried out the arcuata and a couple of the other stems but they seem to be recovering.

that's a really good wood you have there and what a huge wood airstone, i'm guessing you use it as a micro CO2 bubbles?

Well I still have the wooden airstone... I still plan on finding a replacement though.

What do you guys think?

Two crappy cf twist, 5000k, 20w bulbs, in an inefficient lamp.

It is in front of a window though so it gets a tiny amount of diffused sunlight. It is healthy but grows very slow.

I got bored and didn't feel like doing my AP chem homework so I took a few pictures.

Its coming along. I do have a little hair algae but thats not a surprise with the amount of sunlight and the DIY co2 I am using on this tank... I just have to dose a little more excel and replace my batch of co2.

Hah. AP chem. I have no school tomorrow :-P.

Is this an updated photo? Tank looks nice! The colored in Blyxa looks nicer too!

And I noticed that the folks at SCAPE are much more critical than here :-P.

PT has a lot of nice people.

I don't mind the criticism as long as its constructive.

That's a really great looking tank. Very simple design, yet creates a big impact. The colors and textures are awesome. I really love the blyxa coming out of the surrounding moss at the bottom. Is that peacock moss?
With the red arcuata in the back, my eye sees a smoothe transition of color, from red to orangeish to yellow to yellow-green to deep green. I really like the similar yet different textures of the arcuata/blyxa/moss. Their leaves/fronds are all angular/triangular in some way or another, and the wood pieces break up these lines/angles nicely so that the plants dont seem too uniform.

For me, it really creates a splendid visual impact. Great job. I really wish my scape highlighted these visual elements better, like yours does.

Keep up the good work/practice!!

I find the BBA actually looks good on some wood in tanks- sorta adds a natural look, and it sorta compliments the moss in a way, to me. I guess its just the different colours and textures, but it looks really good to me. Where did you get the Mini M- through mail order or from a shop?
