My new and improved 20L, converted from a Walstad tank. It now has Eco-Complete fine grade, with a thin layer of peat at the bottom. I also splurged and got some new plants. :) The only thing I still have left to do is put some moss on the coconut cave, but I'm waiting for my LFS to get some Christmas moss in.

uhhhh NO. It is called "Instant Ocean" for a reason. Do NOT apply to any freshwater tank.

I put together a lightly planted Spec V for a new addition today. Nothing fancy, but Griff seems quite happy in it. :)

Thanks,
I think I will eventually get an anubis nana (think thats the name). For now I've planted a mystery plant from my other tank (any ideas what it might be?)
