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.

Nice little tank :) shame on the pink light fixture ;)
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?

Sam
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)

No, I know you've had it set up before. No, I've seen this exact setup. Very recently. Hmmmm, I wonder where. :lol:

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.
