12 gallon long ideas?
I've never been satisfied with my Edge so I've been thinking of scrapping it and going in a completely different direction. I also have a 40B that has cherry barbs and Furcatus rainbows that I'll be breaking down to make room for a large reef tank. So I was thinking of a mr Aqua 12L to replace the edge on my desk.
The idea would be a seiryu stone hardscape and I'd reuse the grey aragonite sand from the 40B setup.
Plants; carpet of crypt parva and maybe marsilea minuta and not sure what else. I want to keep it kind of minimalist but open to suggestions.
Other livestock; nerites, thiara snails, either 3 or 4 CPO's or sometime of gobies for bottom activity
Heater; not sure what I can do to keep it hidden/clean
Filter; also not sure how to make this as invisible as possible
Lighting; Was thinking a Finnex stingray but completely open to other options. I might possibly go with a higher powered light if I can successfully keep the surface covered in Frogbit or RRF
ATO; not sure what the most discreet sensor/float would be to keep water level constant and hard water stains to a minimum.
Any thoughts, ideas guys?
