Tank and equipment specifications:
The tank is a 30 litre Dennerle Nano Cube and the background, as already established is a DIY slate arrangement with the slate from fennstones.co.uk.
is one base layer of JBL aquabasis with some Dennerle shrimp substrate, I believe to be the Sulawesi Black version.
is a Marina slim 20 which is perfect for the tank, quiet, slim and can hold a lot of media. Here is a review for the Marina slim range
25W Aquatropic heater.
is supplied via a DIY yeast solution which runs from the bottle, through a non return valve, then through a two way spliiter with one end going to a release valve and another into the diffuser. I used a Fluval ceramic diffuser and here's a handy tip for your co2 tubing
: slide it though a glass capilliary tube to keep it straight and neat instead of paying good money for one of those glass tubes; it looks no less elegant yet costs far less.
The drop checker is a very cheap one found on Ebay - you can get much more stylish ones but there really is no need.
Lighting: I took an aquael decolight duo plant and replaced the pink light with another daylight bulb. Total 22 Watts, one 10k and the other 6.5k I believe.
