Office Arc 6.25

I changed jobs about 8 months ago and started missing my planted 10 gallon I had at my old job. My new boss approved a tank on my desk and even though I have three empty tanks at home, I decided I wanted something a bit nicer for this one. I ended up going with the new Petco Arc 6.25 gallon bowfront tank. The first one I got actually had an air bubble trapped in the front pane of glass so I had to exchange it. The new one has no flaws I can find and the silicone is perfect. Like others on this board I realized right away the stock light wasn't going to cut it.

This past weekend I got lucky and had a free day so my family and I went to the Aquatic Experience in Chicago! I found a great new company that is selling a very nice selection of quality emersed plants. I got the Amazonia kit plus I picked up a pot of anubias nana petite and HC. The tank is currently 1 week into a DSM and I'm seeing decent growth so far.

That'll be quite the talking piece for passing colleagues! I like your scape. Looks like a very neat tank too.
