    Decided to "move things around'.

    done and dusted with this one:
    http://www.ukaps.org/forum/threads/crystal-meadow-f-spec19l-nanao.32439/


    so.. Fuval Spec 19L tank. I guess I managed to fit as much as possible in it. lol


    So tech pecs are pretty much same:
    Light Hi-Lumen LED 1000 Lumen
    Original filtration + Co2


    No live stock in now. But probably will go for few Microdevario kubotai, Neon Green/Yellow Rasbora
    some nerite snails and few shrimps

    Plants:
    Anubias Nana, MonteCarlo, Cuba, Crystalwort

    1st progress. Planted just 4 days ago. So far so good

    Love this scape, shame the substrate isn't deeper so you could have a path through the rocks

    Amazing sense of scale, could almost be a 60cm tank, looks like a great start!

    4 Rice Fish
    2 Yellow rasbora
