24 Gal CRS cube..

Hi all...

i always admire this forum, rich with useful and priceless knowledge for me!!!

Here we go...

My tank is 24 gal 45cm cube
- Aquasoil amazonia 9L Normal
- Powersand-S

- 24W powercompact, and still looking for the proper lightning system (around 2 wpg) which can fit the length of my cube (helppp!!) if couldn't find any, i will hook my 3x14W T5 (60cm) from my old tank..

- Seachem Flourish
- Plantgro NPK

- Eheim Liberty 200 HOB

Pressurized CO2 running with 3 bubble per second

- Java Moss (got a bucket load of them for free =) )
- Java Fern
- Rotala W.
- Pongol (??)
- Hybrid Hydrofillia

- Red Crystal Shrimps (i hope they will be happy)

And here's the photos:





Plunge in some stones:

Just after planting and top-ups (cloudy)...

Add some moss (still cloudy)

Just shots from different angle (still cloudy.......hehe)

The next day, clearer view

Use my T5 lights, i know i know...but what can i do =( i need strong lights..

Grow up, find your mate and of course...breed !!!! =)

Just another shot


Now..waiting for the riccia to grow and the CRS to breed...

Do you guys think if i put black screen will be better?? so HOB will be invisible and also the wiring..

Any suggestions??
