29 gal biocube

I was feeding my fish today and thought I'd shoot a picture of my 29 gal biocube. All of the plants were collected in the TX hill country steams, the rocks picked up locally too from area creeks. The fish---pet shop
No CO2 so plant selection is limited.

I use excel in mine and it works fairly well to allow an increased plant selection.

Nice rock (I've got a thing for cool rocks).

ooo, that damsel fly nymph is a fun critter to warch, but be carefull, they eat small fish and have a very sharp aft end.

looks pretty decent.
the rock is limestone, and will raise your ph, but it doesn't matter a whole lot unless you're trying to lower it.

there are a few other plants that'll live in there w/out co2. it's all about lighting at first.
