Thanks.

And an update. I just bought a cabinet (pictured at beginning) that is 2ft wide by a foot deep on craigslist for $10 which I will be painting all black. Pretty pumped it should turn out nice.

It does get some direct light its in a south facing window so not high intensity but my growth is good. Also no problems with temp for what I keep. It got down to 60 in the winter at times.

Just bought 5 cherries for my bowl going to remove the ghost shrimp and beta. Hopefully the cherries breed so I have shrimp for the 2.5 when I start it!

Got my craigslist stand painted and set up with the 2.5 gal. Also getting great root growth in the 2.5 its agonizing waiting for it to become dense. I want to wait to be sure I have the best chance for success once I fill er up!

Well its been a long time since I have updated this but I finally built my small co2 system and got it going so I decided I would go ahead and fill. Hopefully my lawn transitions well. Also have pics of the bowl.
