Introduction - My 7.5 Gallon Rimless (originally dry start method)

Hi guys,

My name is Roy and this is my little project. Started as a dry start experiment last march. I filled it at 5 months after the HC carpeted. My first "hi-tech" system.

Enjoy

Thank you. I can't remember what its called right now. The next time I go to my LFS I will see if they still have some and ask. Its been slowly melting unfortunately. Every time I do a WC I take more of it out. Its nice looking though. I only seem to have luck with certain species. My Jungle Val died almost immediately.

I have a Zoo Med 511 rated for 30gallons. For lighting, I have a Fuge Ray and a FugeRay2 DS.

128 total LEDs. Jager heater. CO2 at about 1bps or less.

I"m also starting to believe that my Aquasoil nutrients are spent after just under a year. Time for some more root tabs.
