I started this tank yesterday after waiting weeks to be able to get started as I was low on money. I got the ideal after finding this 6.6 gallon tank for free, and after anubias became one of my favorite plants. I decided to use black sand because I figured it would be easier to plant roots in and I liked the color. I'm using a Ehiem 2232($60), and a dimmable LED light($30) which doesn't seem to be very bright to me. I do like the dark color the light gives the water when all other lights are off in the room. I believe that this is 2x Anubias nana, and 1x petite but I couldn't the Japanese writing so I really don't know for sure. I'm planing to add more anubias when able. I want to add some fish and shrimp later to give it some more color and life.

I don't know if its the glass or the dust from the sand that's giving it that color.

I apologize, don't mean to act like a know it all or anything. It looks amazing I would personally be concerned. Or it could just be the camera. But I wanted to say again great looking tank.

Don't worry i didn't take offense to anything you said. I'm still looking around for a bit brighter light to buy. I'm worried that it's not bright enough for the plants to grow but I'll see how they respond. I could be the camera, I was playing around with the ISO and white balance settings to try and get as close as possible to the real thing.

I've been looking around for inspiration for an anubia tank - it's the only plant that I can't kill :) I love what you've done with yours, and I now have an idea of what to do with my huge Anubia barteri. Can't wait to see what else you do with this! Keep us posted! :D
