    Wow So Many New People on here, Been Months since I have scaped a tank at home.
    Have been Itching to start another Pico Scape at home.
    Was torn Between doing a FW Planted or SW Frag Tank.

    Found a Lovely Peice of Nano Bogwood and took a Hammer and Chisel to it. And made some nice peices.

    This is a 1g Azoo Reef Blue Acrylic Tank:
    Filter Azoo Mignon 60
    Lighting Firefly 9Watt
    NO heating as not required for Fauna
    Fauna:
    Heterandria Formosa "Gold" - Arriving next Week.
    A Few Snails
    Maybe Some Cherry Shrimp or CRS.

    I had intended to Plant this with A Lovely Large Pot of HC, but it had been sold when i went to get it this afternoon from Pets@Home. So I am After some.
    Also Going to be using Anubuas Nano Petite.

    Yeah, It was either that or the Blue Actinic that came with it. I am going to see if I Can Find Nice Cheap Desk Lamp in Ikea for it, or at the Saturday Car Boot.
    There are usually a few people selling azoo tanks and lights at mine.

    Heterandria Formosa will be here on Tuesday and Waiting on Shrimp I have Chosen - Cardinals, found and Aquarist Classifieds for a Reasonable price.

    That's a cool little tank :) was thinking of something similar for my shrimp tank when I take the nano down.

    How do you rate the HOB filter?

    These Hobs are brilliant have been using them for a few years now. Very Easy to setup and Easy to Maintain. I used to put Plants in with the Media and it looks great. Might try some this time with Xmas Moss.
    The Outflow is Very good and the Adjustable, I have diverted the flow using a Plastic 1/2 pint glass, and It cannot be seen. (Current Inhabitant was finding the flow too great)

    I had this tank Set Up 2 years ago on my Desk with Tiger Endlers Planted with HC and Anubias Nana Petite, with Frogbit as floaters.
    ***************************************************************
    Xmas Moss and Small Moss Balls Arrived this morning.
    Just finished planting it up.

    MOss Balls were taken apart to create a carpet of plants.

    Just finished Rescaping.
    Red Tiger Lotus Bulb Arrived this afternoon while out shopping.
    Planted a palm type plant that I like to use to add more above the water.
    Made more open swimming area for the HF and removed any snails I found.

    Id leave cardinals as they need VERY stable water parameters and a specific setup. They also require water twarmer than 25'c and it has to be 100% constant.
