Mini-S and The Rock

Hi,

Setup this tank on 10 Dec 2007.

With normal Aquasoil just enough to cover the Powersand underneath, the rock was placed on top slowly...


Buried the rock further using powder type Aquasoil, making slope...


Water in, water out, until crystal clear...


After a month, with cheap equipments , DIY lighting, DIY fan..


After two months


Now, third month...picture not taken yet,

Comments?

Regards

nice tank, awsome rock texture.

What type of plant did you use to carpet?

Thank you for looking and kind words.

The carpet plant is Eleocharis sp. 'Japan' (Japanese hairgrass), shorter than the regular dwarf hairgrass, curly too. The height, so far 2 to 3 cm, in contrast to what have been stated in the link above.

Thanks for sharing. It reminds me of a nice breezy day along a hillside

Nice tank. What are the equipment specs?

What is the filter you are using? Did the surface skimmer come with it or is it DIY?

My first thought was, that rock is way too big. LOL
My second thought was, holy crap that looks awesome! I always shake my head and wonder why I can't create something so simple yet so exquisite.
Nice job!

Thank you, appreciate it.

The filter is the same as the filter I am using for my other nano tank, come with the surface skimmer. Have to modify a bit, to shorten the intake actually.



The lighting is DIY 18W PL-L Philips 865. Photoperiod is 6 hours daily. Also using DIY CO2.

Kana, just have to have a lot of imagination, I guess..

Regards

Where did you get the filter? I did some looking and can not find a seller. I may have to DIY a skimmer for my current HOB of other sizes.

That Japanese Hairgrass is sweet! Anyone know if it's available in the US?

The simplicity of this layout is refreshing -- the texture of the single rock is really, really nice.

The more I see of these ADA minis, the more I want one...

Is that the new Eleocharis you are using there? sp. Belem http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...ants-sale.html

The tank looks great!
