My 38 Gallon Diary!

Hey All, I just recently got a new tank. A week ago I got the stand and the tank all set up and here's what it looked like:







Taken with my camera phone.. too lazy to get the digi.

After a couple of days I finally got some substrate and a Penguin 350 Biowheel which didn't fit at first. But I used a Dremel (thanks purrbox) and cut out some of the hood.





What do you all think so far? There's still plenty of stuff I need, including a heater or two.

I used black felt as the background.

Turn off all of the lights in the room except the tank lights. Use a tripod, and no flash.

Well, here's an update.

Just a quick question - there's tiny "dust particle" looking things floating around my aquarium that I noticed ever since I got my new light w/ a blue actinic. I'm pretty sure I'm not over feeding. My filter is working, what is it? Just tiny little dust looking stuff.

Anyways, on to the updates!



View from the top.





Opinions, recommendations, etc, welcome!

Might be particulate too small to be contained within your filter media. Try adding some filter floss and see if that clears it up.
