30cm single stone scape-lonely stripe-

After lurking in this forum for so long. i think its time i post something here
been postponing the start of this journal for quite some time, alot feet dragging and lazy all round.started this tank as an impulse buy tank,and scaped it from left over material from my decommed 2ft.
tank-30cmW,22cmH,D13cm. (odd tank rite? i know cost me only rm15 which is roughly 5USD?)
filter-Boyu ef-05
lights- Up aqua pro series z 30cm.
cooling(damn hot in my country)-diy computer fan.
co2-diy injected.
flora-currently:
Dwarf japanese hair grass,Hemianthus micranthemoides,riccia.
fauna-ramshorn snail ,Tanichthys albonubes-white cloud mountain minnows.
sorry for some of my images, i have to resize them for my other forums
How my tank looks currently:



what my tank used to be.. a over runned stem plants tank..


even though its messy, but when the riccia pearls its one of the nicest thing to see..


this stone changes things and set my heart on rescaping the tank.




1-tool out the rock ,stems and riccia. leaving only the front djhg.
2-rebuild slope with recycled amazonia+powersand mix.
3-place stone


just after placing riccia stone,replant djhg and refilling the tank.


after some time~


tank as of now.

So far no complaints. low heat and as you can see my HM actually growing side ways so... i guess the light is bright enough. im quite worried about the light's brightness too when i 1st bought it, but i guess the result speak for itself.

Update!!
the HM and Riccia is just getting out of hand, getting away from my original vision of a clean one stone scape. so ive removed the HM and riccia. also ditching the diy co2, for easier maintenance ive opted for liquid carbon. swapped the white cloud mountain minnows for ember tetra, better on the scale.
heres and update shot of the tank

been battling GDA since removal of stem plant @[email protected]

bold spots where the riccia used to be.. hope they fill u soon.

cant wait for the ember tetra to colour up cute little fishes, they are!
