ESK07,
Very nice!
I just wanted to say that you are probably outgassing alot of CO2 by having all that turbulence on the surface with the spraybar
Looks really nice either way.

Just look at all that anubias! I guess the amount I sent you was a little over kill for a 26G.

Nice job with the scape. Once it grows in a bit, I bet it would look extra nice.

The only thing I worry about is the mixing of eco and sand after a replant or two.

Love the tank. I bet it is really low maintenance too. Anubias is a real favorite of mine.

BTW - the Brilliant Rosbora's are a great pick in fish. I had a bunch of them in my old 40G long. Nice tight schooling fish.

That's a lot of Anubias! Great tank, you did a nice job scaping around that piece of manzy
