Well, it's all up and running. Took over an hour just to plant the hairgrass.
This is my first experience with Aquasoil. I'll do partial water changes every few days and will be keeping an eye on the ammonia.
First time going without a background too. Pretty excited about that.
On to the pics...
Filled (don't mind the filter/diffuser, it's geared for 'snail asphyxiation' mode tonight):
Doesn't look like much now. They never do. Give it two months.
I have a TopFin tank, the silicone isnt that sloppy? Maybe its just urs.
I don't know. I have two and both are sloppier than my AGA tanks. On the other hand, the silicone work on the Top Fin tanks with black
silicone is the best I've seen in mass-produced tanks.
I am not so sure I like your rocks though.
Sorry to hear that. I think they're fantastic; hand selected by your's truly...I must have looked at a thousand rocks before finding the right combination. In the end, the rock yard didn't charge me since 5 rocks was relatively trivial given the scale they sell things at. Total cost of $0.00 - eat your hearts out those who spend $3.98 or whatever ridiculousness on ADG rocks just like everyone else has...it's like frat club dues... har.
