New Fluval Spec V Iwagumi

Still in the just-built stage. Going to do a dry start to get the carpet in, probably.

Seiryu stone washed in HCl acid.

Why did you wash it with HCl? Just curious.

What are you going to stock?

Which carpet plant are you going to use and what lighting?

HCl wash cleans off a bunch of the garbage on the surface and deepens the cracks and texture of the stone. For black seiryu stone, it brings out the black and white much much better.

Going to try the stock light and see if it will grow Monte Carlo.

Probably just shrimp.

I have a backup light plan with a Finnex planted plus 12 or 16 inch. Might have to add co2 at that point though, and thatís too complex for a tank on my desk at work.

Got it. That makes sense, I wasn't even thinking in that direction!

I would skip CO2 for a desk shrimp tank, Shrimp don't love it. You can do plants that will be fine without it.

It will be fun to watch you do the build!
