Decided to deconstruct my old 5 gallon desktop tank and do something new.

This is the new scape.




Current:



Still working on the plant design. Just have clippings from my other tank to have something going. Keeping it low tech.

Live stock: from (pre existing planted tank)
1 Boraras brigittae
1 Ottocat
1 ramshorn snail
3 Shrimp
1 harlequin rasbora
6 celestial pearl danio

Moved 6 celestial pearl danio from my one fluval ebi to this.... figured i would enjoy them more, and they wouldn't get harassed by the golden white cloud minnows ever again :p

What kind of light are you using?

It looks really nice!!
I am actually only using a 13 Watt CFL bulb with a Kelvin of 5500 which it the daylight spectrum..And it's just a normal lamp that i liked... i did add some reflective tape in the hood though to reflect more efficiently.
