Finally got to set up my brother's tank.

All low tech, low light. Few varietes of Anubias, Java Ferns, Crypts, and some Bolbitis.

That does look good. Those plants are arranged in a unique way. Does this tank have CO2 injection?

Hoppy's setup really did look good in the end with the oak trim tank, and I don't think the Illuminata comes with that option.

Sorry, was late and I was pooped. ;) . Some specs:

36x18 57g trimless tank
Eheim ProII 2026
GLO 2x39 lighting
Eco Complete substrate

Planning Seachem's line for ferts at this time, no pressurized CO2 (yet, I'll get him there though ;))

Anubias nana narrow, nana eyes, nana petite
Java fern, java narrow, java trident
Crypt Willissiii, Spiralis
Bolbitis Heudolotti

This is a very well-done low-tech scape! I doubt you'd even need any CO2 injection in there with that plant selection (of course, co2 will only make it that much better!). A very inspiring scape here! :)

Yes, yes, yes! I am jealous! But, congratulations on getting the best looking moderately priced tank I can remember seeing. Where I failed, you succeeded!:flick:

And, it looks every bit as nice as I thought it would. Nice job setting it up, too.

I also really like the scape! The dark rocks and dark green leaves of the plants look really good together!

Awesome looking tank. Not going to lie though: if you added Co2, either DIY or pressurized, that tank would just explode in greeny awesomeness!
