    Thanks Doyle!

    I'm rather pleased with it! plants have gone and spread out a noticeable amount since i swapped LED lights.
    time to remove the sword I think and replant some stems.

    I reckon neelde java in the corner. Don't do too much stems, unless you enjoy trimming.

    Nice work with this tank! The yellows multiplying yet?

    Nice idea, thanks Rebel!
    I will probably do that, I have plenty of needle java in my 4ftr

    Yellows are multiplying like crazy! still small in size, but they are getting there.
    Ill have some for you soon if you still want?

    So thought id throw a quick update in, now pics atm will take one last pick before I shut the tank down to be transported to the new home.
    this tank will go into my computer room and ill throw a new scape together I think.

    Most shrimp died off and snails took over.

    Turned out, the heater in the tank stopped working and i never noticed. shrimp didnt like the cold
    Will keep a better eye on it next scape thats for sure.

    You're saying NOOOOO, should have seen how bad I felt when I noticed majority had disappeared lol.
    Yea not sure what I will do with the new scape, but ill be using whatever I have in this tank to built it, and perhaps some extra drift wood.
    Not sure just yet

    well a rescape occured when moving it to the new unit, its basic, nothing overly fancy.
    some moss and java fern on the left is temporary awaiting new home in big tank

    basically this tank will be MC, some crypts, a little moss, and some Ludwigia Sp. Super Red Mini
    We will see how it plays out.
    Will probably rescape it again as im not too fussed on it yet. ill give it a chance.

    Hopefully it all copes with the transition from co2 to non co2 also

    I should have took the addtional plants out just for the photo

    Bought 6 Harlequin Rasoboras last night and get them into the tank, I think ill get 6 dwarf species corydoras (unsure which type yet) and then call it a day on this cube

    Looking good. Can't see a lot of detail on those photos but maybe post some some up if you can.

    IMO the light hanging makes it more cumbersome say compared to a simple Chihiros A series or similar. Did you deliberately hang it fairly close the tank?

    I really like how the tank looks like it's floating!!

    Harlequins may grow to be too big for this tank unless you got the smaller type. No worries as you can chuck in them in your 4 footer.. :P

    I put 3 CPD (full grown) in my cube and they look too big!!

    I was definitely thinking it would be a temporary home until the big tank is ready, then perhaps ill get a couple of dozen more
    Edit: ok maybe I said that a bit too quick. I was thinking that they would stay their current size and be ok in the tank, perhaps I will need to rehome them eventually though

    Moved the Harlequin Rasboras into the 4x2x2 to give the shrimp freedoms.
    Hoping the two ARE M/F and breed.

    otherwise ill just go buy some high grade reds to go with them

    Also considering a rescape in this tank already, im not happy with the purple lava rock, and I now have some Niwa rock free to use wherever, I have a thought in mind about having grand canyon style theme with a few bits of small driftwood creating some perches with moss on them.

    Time will tell if I make a decision, or buy bookshelf tank and do it in that instead lol.
