ch3fb0yrdee, I never thought I'd get into small tanks, since I've always gone with bigger size tanks (20 gallon +), but the Mini M won me over into the nano world. The clean ADA design definitely had a lot to do with it though.
clwatkins10, So far, the equipment has been worth the extra cost. I'm still having that syndrome of "whoa, this is actually my tank." At least for me, it inspires me to keep my room cleaner, since appearances have to be maintained, which horribly collides with my normal laziness routine.
The rocks have actually given me a bit of a headache, though not so much as a headache as the stones for Ukiyo; the major difference here for me is the adjustment between the big and the small, scale is so much different. Small stones are suddenly worth a lot more than bigger ones. I did manage to get some big stones that'll go well in UKiyo, and probably bring that design together, but by and large, I'm having trouble balancing the real-estate to rock layout in the way I want it; since the rocks seem like they can only really fit into the tank one way. An interesting challenge. I think i'll post some sample layouts later.
Aquascaper for life.
