If you've been through the DIY forum, you've more or less likely have seen my DIY built in overflow for my 2.5g pico tank.
This is just a continuation "journal" of sorts.
The original thread can be found here: http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...ico-built.html
Well, obviously we want to see pics! But first, here's the specs:
Coconut fiber Substrate (Layer 1)
Cheapy Sand (Layer 2)
13 watt Grow CFL clip-on lamp
Aqua-VA80 mini power head
Kent fresh water plant Fert.
[soon] DIY yeast CO2
A 2.5 Gallon tank with a basic DIY overflow filter.
The mini power head used.
Here it is all set up and running:
Full Tank (R)
Full Tank (L) (As you can see the whole side is cracked... The origins of which I may or may not share) =p
Water level difference (overflow in action!)
Changed the scape to resemble more of a "stumpish" type setup.
Also, Plants came in the mail!
The flora at the moment are Java and Xmas Moss, while the Fauna are two very lonely Zebra Danios (whom have escaped my ability to capture them on camera).
Full tank (R)
Over all, I'm pretty happy with the set up. First experience with aquascaping!
So far, my total costs have totaled to around $50. Which is great for a planted tank!
Anyways, I'm on the lookout for any HC grass, Fissidens, Hydrocotyle (leucocephala), or may be even some nano anubias. (So if you have anything you'd wanna offer me...
$ ha ha)
I'm open to any other plant/scaping suggestions, so all/any feedback is welcomed.
(I'll update if anything new happens)
