OK so this is a really long thread and I haven't had a chance to read everything except the last couple of pages of posts so apologies if this has been asked before.

I see you're using the DSM to get your planting started. Are you going to be injecting CO2 for the tank? Open top tanks tend to lose CO2 quickly and require injection, esp for plants that will need to change from emersed to submersed.

The layout is awesome, I can't wait to see what it looks like with the plants grown in and the tank filled.

I actually dont intend to inject CO2 at all ^_^ I'm used to the high light / no CO2 route, so I'll continue to do that :) hc is my only challenge in this case~ but I'll figure that out when I get there, if it doesnt do well I can always switch back to HM :D

Very cool.

I'd start playing with more small tanks but too much on the go as it is.

Pico tanks are not high maintainance at all :P
I leave them on auto pilot when I go on trips and stuff.

XD I still trying to get down to just the one betta~
The oto and my panda garra are awaiting new homes :/ someone wanted the oto, but the two hang out together so I couldn't bring myself to separate them...

My panda garra had an "upstream" adventure and ended up in the HOB. I was glad I found him alive and double blocked the HOB.
I had previously blocked it off, but it wasnt enough >.>
I've also seen otos trying to go "upstream". O_o hillstream fish, sigh. lol

Yah, but they need to be thought out and set up, that's the time I am missing.
