I didn't think I'd do these two things, and I definitely didn't think I'd do them at the same time! This is an Iwagumi with Dry Start Method! The tank is a standard 2.5G. Substrate is Miracle Gro Organic Choice capped with black sand (boy, that made a HUGE
mess; never again will I use that stuff!) But, it will pay off in the long run. Now, I don't believe in low light tanks. I only do high light; I stuck a 10G incandescent stock hood on the tiny tank with two 15 watt 6500K spiral CFLs!
With 12 wpg, I think I'm in the high light range. This will be an HC tank and I might add some E. parvula if I want to.
Oh man, this is gonna be sooooo FUN! I named this tank "Shiro No Hirameki", White Flash, because the stones I have are grey with white lightning bolts on them. Except you don't have a clear view because I got the stones from my other tank that covered them with Flourite Dust. Here are the pics!
When I flood it, it's gonna have a whisper 3i, Seachem Flourish & Tetra FloraPride 2x/week, DIY CO2, and API CO2 Booster.
For fauna.....it's gonna be the thing that I never thought I'd do...again. -gulp- I'm gonna keep RCS *DUN DUN DUUUUUN*. And since I'm an adventurous person, I'm gonna try and BREED the RCS *DUN. DUN. DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN.* LOL!
Since this is my first DSM tank, can anyone tell me if I'm doing something wrong? Thanks!
Now it's safe to say the Planted Tank Bug bit me, lol.
