Got the tank in today, and spent a couple hours setting it up. It needs to warm up now, but that's about it.
Added in the API First Layer
Scaping done. I also added in some plastic barriers to help keep the sand in place. Not as easy as I would have hoped...
Filling it up with water
I added a couple 10" LED strips to it, and it adds a bit more blue than I would like, so I'll have to look into different strips.
And finally, the LED light that comes with it. The camera grabbed far more blue than you actually see. That's kinda odd...
I'm letting it settle and then I need to add more sand to a few areas that settled enough to show the plastic, and we shall see how the riccia does. I may swap it out for something else.once this is warmed up, and growing, I'll be able to give my Betta a new home, and then eventually get some shrimp in there as well!
