resowner's 12in cube (updated pics 7/1!)

Hi this will be my first nano tank! Finally got my tank today and i have been anxiously awaiting it to come.

heres the hardscape for it
w/ light


closer look at the mountain


so how do u like it?

For flora i was thinking of puting hc on the mountain and then i was going to have a plant all around the mountain but still i am undecided . Then i am going to have some red root floater on the top to make it look like it is raining and to help cycle it faster for fish. For fauna i am thinking of cdp's and maybe rcs.

Ha, I just bought that exact lamp from Home Depot today for my planned 12" cube. I was going to make my own, but the one you have looks really good. Where did you get it?

My only thoughts on your setup is that if you plant HC on the mountain and plants around it, the plants might grow to hide the mountain itself. Keep that in mind when picking what goes in.

Good start.

Nice tank and hardscape! Also, that looks to be the perfect blend of flourite and sms charcoal - it takes a skilled hand to mix it just right like that!

How about: HC up front and on mountain. Downoi accents around rocks. Blyxa behind mountain. Rotala 'green' or Didiplis diandra as stem plant in back center. Would look rad...

Very roughly, less uniform looking, and substituting HC for glosso, Downoi for H.verticala, and a better stem plant for HM:

Very nice, I can't wait to see what it will look like with plants.

Nice job macclellan, do you teach a class in how to do that?

well hopefully i will buy some of the plants tommorow but it depends on how much money i have after i make the stand. But i think the stand is only going to cost $20 and that will leave me $30 to get plants and a filter
