    Very impressive sense of depth for a small tank. I didn't read the size and was thinking it was a 10-20USG :)

    thanks for the comments. I do need to do some work on this aquarium. It's been set up for close to a year now and it's been a couple months since I changed anything around in it.

    olivierleo: I used about 1/3 to 1/2 a 3L bag.

    I decided to try a couple of different things in this tank for a change. First, I removed the pile of slate chips behind the wood and split up the 3 separate windelov fern plants and put them behind and to the right of the wood. Back where the pile of slate chips were, I added some Hygro ceylon in the back, and some najas roraima in the front. As you can see it looks bare, but I'm sure in the next week or two, I'll expect to see some nice growth. I changed the light back to 2X 13w spiral power compacts. My coralife mini is basically junk, the heat cracked the plastic endcaps and it fell apart on my. The light still works but it will almost burn your fingers when touching it.
