    Hi Nazegoreng, very patient and inspire cube! Amazing work. I just want to ask if wouldn't be better idea put inflow next to outflow for better circulation in tank. Great work man, keep posting.

    Thanks so much everyone, and yes fazyl I have moved the pipes next to each other now :) .

    I was just wondering if anyone could give me advice on getting slightly too small filter tubing onto my lily pipes? The seller told me the tubing was larger than it actually is, and now I am having trouble getting it on. I have tried heating it up, but still just too small. Any ideas please?

    I did it!!!

    I first heated up the tubing, and used a long nozzel to slip it over (this was covered in butter). I then let it cool, thus making the end of the pipe bigger. Then, once cool, I slipped it off, buttered the lily pipe and pushed it on. Then warmed it gently and let it cool. It took me all day but I did it!!

    What filter are you using? I've wanted to get lily pipes for my cube that runs and eheim 2211 but the smallest lily tube with the lily cup is a little too large for the outlet hose on the 2211.

    I'm using the eden 501 for now. So relieved to get the pipes on. It will be flooded tomorrow :p

    Flooding went superbly. CO2 was a breeze to set up (huge thanks to Ray for helping), filter is a gem and all in all a great day. I can't stop staring at it! I will get some pictures tonight of the insane pearling that is going on. I can't believe it!

    A taller variety of hairgrass will be placed in the far background, towards the sides. Still waiting on regular hairgrass to fill in :).

    I used to use an eden 501 on my cube, you have to clean them weekly to get the best out of them so keep that in mind. Good luck with the flood!

    Looks like it'll be terrible camera phone pics for this update. Until next week anyway. Pics before and after a trim.

    Looking great. My only criticism would be towards the larger rock and how it doesn't appear naturally blended with the substrate bed. I think the foreground growth might help with that, but something to keep in mind.

    Thanks John :). There is actually quite allot of flame moss right in front of the main rock, I believe once it grows up and dense it should help blend it nicely.
