my first attempt at a iwagumi.
be kind. this is my first attempt at an iwagumi style tank and this is my first journal.
this is what i have so far:
- Eheim [STRIKE]2211 canister filter (think it's too small)[/STRIKE] 2215
- Cal aqua nano lily pipes (i thought i was doing a smaller tank)
- Coral Life T5HO 2x 10,000k bulbs
Most Current Picture 7/5/13:
- milwaukee regulator w/solenoid
At first i was gonna do a 11.4g Mr. Aqua tank. I bought Cal Aqua nano lily pipes and a small eheim 2211 canister filter. After I put the 11.4 on the cabinet I had...I had to go bigger. It looked ridiculous.
Picked up a 17.4g Mr. Aqua and a Coral Life T5HO fixture.
Frosted the back
Drilled holes for my canister filter
Lily pipes look really small but hopefully it'll work ok with the substrate in.
I put in everything
Forgot to put in the powersand so i took everything out. Also took out a stone and added a better looking one
Pics of the hc and hair grass
i'll try to upload weekly pics. hope the hc grows in quick. does anyone have any tips on growing hc faster?:hihi:
I covered the tank with cling wrap and left a small area uncovered.
Lights are on for 8 hours a day.
got my bigger filter in the mail today. (2215)
comparison between the one i was gonna use (2211)
End of week 2
Things didn't go as planned. i give up dsm. i filled it
