6 gallon rimless bookshelf journal

Shortly after "finishing" my fluval spec 2.6 nano I found the Mr Aqua 6 gallon bookshelf at my LFS. Once I saw it I knew I had to have one. I ended up buying just the tank and slowly picking up everything else I needed over the past few months.

Lighting: 24" Finnex Fugeray Planted+
Filter: Zoomed 501 Canister
Substrate: Mr Aqua Aquarium Soil
CO2: 12oz paintball tank, ASA reg, Brass Needlevalve, Glass diffuser, Aquatek Drop checker
Plants: Microsword, Amazon Sword, Dwarf Hairgrass(parvula)
Rock: Mix of slate/granite found in the canyon

I wanted a black background, but didn't want to deal with plastic or glue/tape so I decided to add a thick layer of plasti-dip to the outside of the back panel.

Laid out the substrate and hardscape.

Then filled it up and added some microsword and the rest of the hardware.

And today I added some DHG

I should be receiving a bunch of dwarf baby tears within the next few days. I'd like to use them to cover up the rest of the remaining foreground.

As far as livestock goes, I'd like to add an otocinclus, some dwarf cories, and celestial pearl danios.
