    Lights are on so i got some pictures of the water now that its clear.


    Looks decent, probably gonna need until tomorrow to be totally kosher, also note I have some of the old substrate in a nylon on the right side by the filter to make sure i don't have to totally re-cycle

    This one i'm proud of. I've been wanting to do this ever since i saw this rock in my LFS, its indented there and filled with sand so i planted some microsword on it. hopping it'll fill in the sand on top of the cave

    I can't help myself...with the lights off and after dark...I'm literally giddy at how well this worked out.

    I set up a 3rd cannister CFL to give the tank 3 dimensional light...thoughts?
