Still with the same size of a...

    A Long Start, another Iwagumi story

    New Cube

    Couldn't wait and have started my new Fluval 30cm. cube tank. Had a terrible time trying to plant in ADA Amazonia substrate, but with handy tips from fellow members, have made some progress. HOB filter flow made a crater in the substrate, so I made a small sponge "dam" on the filter raceway...
