My new rcs 8gal tank from "scratch"

I hope you enjoy!! Im running this tank with diy leds and diy co2. Im loving how it looks and i might make an adjustment on the lights cause i have 4 cree xp-g cool whites and i wanna add another and have them in a row instead of having them all in the middle as they are right now!

Looks great

I found less "spread" with my LEDs. I have dark corners in my tank. Luckily I love Crypts
I put C crispatula Balansae in my corners.

No, leave the molted skin in the tank, they eat it for the calcium.
