    FYI, this monkey is pounding his 4th cup of coffee enjoying this thread as well.

    I would post mine, but he'd make other owners jealous.

    Here is my current project, and its progression....

    Here we go with a new project, a Mr. Aqua 12g Long. The tank dimensions are 36" long, 9" tall and 8" deep.

    These two pictures are my first go at a hardscape with this tank. My goal was to use the entire length of the tank, with the left side being the more dramatic of the two, while having a valley in the middle area. I will be doing a Dry Start, and plan to update this thread weekly.

    Specs:
    Tank: Mr. Aqua 12g Long
    Substrate: ADA "New" Amazonia
    Hardscape: Seiryu Stone (11)
    Flora: Hemianthus Callitrichoides ‘Cuba’(HC), Eleocharis Parvula (DHG) and Hydrocotyle sp."Japan"
    Fauna: Thinking of 15 Boraras Brigittae or 15 Ember Tetras (something to contrast the green plants)
    CO2: Pressurized Paintball
    Ferts: Liquid NPK + Excel
    Filtration: Eheim 2213 or Fluval 206
    Lighting: AquaticLife 36" T5HO 6500k & Roseate (planning on suspending light, and using layer of window screen to tame the light)

    On to the pix (iPhone with fingerprints galore):




    As always, feedback is welcome and encouraged, thanks for looking!!!

    Here we go, Day 1 of the dry start. I decided not to use hydro japan, and used 4 pots of HC and 4 pots of DHG. Once it floods and cycles, I'll trim the DHG accordingly.


    Day 8 update
    As expected, not too much to report, i can see the roots of the HC starting to dig into the substrate as well as fresh tiny leaflets. There is a tiny bit of yellowing of some of the HC. The DHG has few random new blades popping up, and a few blades are yellowing. So far, things are moving along as expected. Hoping to see some better HC crawling this week!


    Day 15 update
    I trimmed down the DHG big time to further help encourage it to spread. It is doing a great job with new blades popping up randomly throughout the tank. The HC is also doing well, crawling like a baby, and it continues to root itself deeper and deeper.

    Looking from the left side down to the right


    Day 21 update...
    More HC crawling, more DHG sprouting.














    Day 25ish?

    Still seeing nice crawling by the HC and the DHG is responding well to the recent trimming. I'm thinking of flooding the tank next week. Today I picked up an eheim 2213 and plumbed it all, (can see the stock pipes on left side). I am using one of those SS Mesh Pre-Filters on the intake instead of the standard green one. I don't have any plans at the moment to do glass lily's, I might take a stab at som DIY acrylic ones though. I also added 3 layers of window screen between my bulbs and splash-guard in my light to tame it, it really did make a difference! Last night I picked up a 20oz paintball tank and am waiting for my ASA Valve/NeedleValve/O-Ring/Diffuser kit to arrive...holiday messed that up, should be back in my office on Monday, and it should be there. Once I get that all set up I'll fill the tank, I was going to try to do a two month dry start, but I'm too impatient, and a well respected fellow TPT'er encouraged me to fill it sooner than later. Forgot to mention I also rotated the rock on the back right, I feel like this flows better with the rest of the scape.

    Okay, so the first shot of your tank is totally giving me a Star-Trek vibe..looks just like the vasquez rocks from the original series. I love seeing the shrimp too, I have a mini ecosystem on my desk at work with the same little guys in it..they're actually quite cute
