What up plant people!

MTS has hit. (Brian wouldn't be surprised!) I convinced my wife that my 7 month old son needed a tank. "You know like a night light." It worked but the light is too freaking bright lol. Of course, I knew that. Any who, here it is finally planted. Fluval Spec V w/ 16" Finnex FugeRay Planted+. Aquatek CO2 Regulator.

Week 3. It's been 2 days after adding 10 RCS. You can clearly see they have eaten all the bio film on the Seiryu.

Spotted 4 babies today, so I plugged the lower inlet with spongy media. Also added pre filter sponge on the upper inlet.

I've counted approximately 30 babies. Here are some hanging out. Made the mistake of pouring replacement water that wasn't properly mixed with de chlorinator. I think I killed most of my bacteria when I poured the water into the filter housing. Hence the cloudiness. I'm certain it will clear up in about 2 weeks.

Nicely done!

You have made yours look very nice.

Yes, MTS has hit indeed! Nice new acquisition. I've been considering a spec 2g or 3g for my office at work. Anyways, good job and definitely makes for a good nightlight! ;)

Very nice! I recently re-did my Spec 5 and it's now on my desk as a shrimp only tank. Yours looks so much brighter with the Finnex, might be something to think about :hide:

Cool... got a pic?

I did some research and my lighting arrived before my spec v. Didn't think the oem fixtures could grow UG or could they? [emoji848]

This is my current setup. The wiring behind my desk is a mess that needs to be dealt with, I'm also thinking about adding a background. Kit lighting is a bit too dark for me so an upgrade is on my wish list.

Looks fine to me. Do you have co2? It depends on what you're trying to grow. The more light, the more fertilizer and co2 is needed or else algae will win.

What's that growing in the middle back?

Dang! Nice looking tank! I've never gotten cherry shrimp to breed in my tanks, what's your secret? Mine only lasted a year and then died out
