Here is a before and after shot:
After is better looking, nice trim job!
Well I bought and cleaned some CaribSea FloraMax. For the 12G Edge tank.
Added Staurogyne Repens (SR)and Cryptocoryne Balansae, Crispatula var. Balansae, from Petsmart and I bought some Cryptocoryne Wendtii 'Tropica'
some stems of the plants I got last week, the Red Rotala and the Sunset Hygrophila.
Moved my Christmas Moss onto a twig and added a Anubias Nana 'Petite' into a little nook. Aaaahhh so nice.....
Then I added more water and completely forgot the DW was going to float. Well it floated and floated well!
I knocked over almost all the SR I had just planted, smashed a little bit of it with the DW while I was trying to figure out what I would use to hold it down. Came up with a big white quartz stone. it was too big and flopped over and banged against the glass.
Almost had a heart attack thinking it was gonna break!!!
Found a couple smaller Iron stone river rocks, needed two to keep it down and tucked them into the wood.
Finished by adding some additional substrate and water and hooked up the filter.
lights compared to the Halogen in my 6G Edge, are so much brighter.
It is a bit cloudy, a couple hours after messing with it. Maybe 20% more to clear up. hopefully by morning.
Not very Glorious, but here is the first pic.
