Hi I'm new here, from Singapore.

I just started on a mini tank project.

Tank specs:
Tank: 20x20x20cm (2nd hand)
Lighting: 9W Compact Fluorescent
Filter: Hangover filter
Substrate: ADA Aquasoil Amazonia on Gravel on Potting soil

I plan to cover the bottom with Eleocharis acicularis.

Here are some pics.

The large single rock creates a very powerful impression! Perhaps it is too large in comparison to the two smaller rocks?

Should turn out great. Keep us updated with lots of pictures as Kevin said. :)

Actually the rock on the right is bigger than what it looks like in the photo. Can't really capture what my eyes are seeing...

I could only see one pic here, and the one on Imagestation page that says you have to login.

Looks pretty interesting. I have a similar sized tank with 7w PC over it (planned on increasing this) but just don't know what to do with it :(

update!



Planted the hairgrass. small tank, really easy to pack them in tight intervals, could have been tighter if I had more hairgrass.

No CO2 yet. most probably will inject via atomizer.

This angle is good, maybe a little to the right and the rock placement would be great. How did you create the vector looking image, some kind of trace program. Looks good. I also like the color in this picture, but underwater that white blotch distracts. Maybe that will be a good thing in the composition when everything is grown out. Neat tank.

I just used Photoshop and drew the lines over the pic on a seperate layer.
I also feel that the contrast will be more subdued when the grass covers much space around the rocks. Also when algae grows over the rock, the color contrast will also weaken and be balanced out.
