NWA's next nano

So, what started the whole time for a new tank thing was this piece of driftwood...


Originally I planned on getting a 5.4 gallon nano from truaqua. They shipped me a 14". 11 gallon cube.. Bigger than I was planning but hey I am not going to bother returning it

Equipment:
14" high clarity cube
16" finnex planted +
Rapids mini canister
Glass Lily pipes (intake and return)
Glass drop checker
Glass nano ceramic diffuser
Paintball CO2 injection

Soil will be ADA ammazonia and ADA Colorado power sand

Flora undecided
Fauna:
Galaxy raspbora
Chocolate or honey gourami
Pygmy cory
And maybe some shrimp.... Not sure how they will do with above fish.

Only things left to get it, co2 tank, diffuser, drop checker, pipes and light, teaser picks below. Stay tuned!!






Stay tuned

At first glance I thought that piece of wood was HUGE, until I saw the last pic.


Nice score on the tank, though you might need more hardscape now!
Good luck, a well done cube can be really beautiful.

Well sadly about the peak of this tank I had to take it down.... here are some photos though
The last photo was the tank prior to tear down... but one day I hope to set it up again! Just bad timing
