    After owning several community tanks with few plants, I've decided to take a dip into the high tech side of this hobby. Hoping to learn a lot from the community and to document my own struggles and progress in to coming months. Stay tuned for pictures of the equipment that has already arrived!

    I'm looking forward to reading about your progress
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Okay so here we go, tank will be dry started
    Jan 30th 2013: Received some items last week:
    1) 40 lbs of eco-complete
    2) Corallife 2x65w PC fixture
    3) Eheim 2213

    And the centerpiece from earlier this morning: ADA 60p (~18g), after some rough hardscaping I came up with this using some old malasian driftwood. However the right side looks sorta empty and need some opinions on what to fill it with.

    CO2 regulator and the rest of the glassware (excluding my damn lily pipes) are scheduled to arrive early tomorrow morning. Will update when they arrive.
    P.S. looking for some opinions on plant choices specifically some mid ground plants, my heart is currently set on a beautiful carpet of HC. However I am must likely picking up some plant tomorrow so input will be much appreciated.

    Thanks for reading!

    Jan 31st 2013: My CO2 equipment has arrived and nothing seems broken. Damned UPS charged me 50$ brokerage fee, guess I'm going to declare items myself in the future.

    Anyways here a picture of the equipment, from right to left: Atomic V3 regulator, Inline Diffuser, Bubble checker, and double drop checker.

    Going to pick to orders of HC and DHG along with the dry ferts later today, will update when they are planted.

    Thats an awesome tank. Have you thought of addingsome stones? That might help fil in the hardscape. Are you going to tie down the HC to little stone or just plant them directly?

    going to look at some stones on friday, a local aquarist is shutting down his tanks so hopefully get them for a steal (considering no rock yards are open -41C winnipeg winters). Planting the HC directly and likely going to get some Christmas moss farther down the line for attachment to driftwood.

    During my partial filling for the dry start chipped the glass a little, sad panda hopefully it wont be that noticeable.
