It is thin so floating or lifting shouldn't be a Problem

another little update:

Inspired by Mr. Teapot decided to put my hands on DIY lamp shade.
As my girls were complaining about the light hitting in their eyes, finaly decided to change things..

To be fair - ended up with a bit too massive look for my eye (I could make the board 1-2in less in height)
But it is no way I'm re-doing it now :) 3 evenings spent on this..

This will hold my Radion light unit and 2x2w4 T5's (420mm) for extra support or backup if needed
Also it will be easy to fit it with second Radion..just in case it happens..

And closer look in my 3 day DIY experience

Hi everyone!

This might be the right time for an update.
Flooded on 12th of Oct. As soon as received Elocharis
planted and flooded. Could not wait longer as H.Araguaia was struggling
in DSM and I lost half of it. So looking for portion to replant missing spots

so .. many says proper planning is essential .. and I do agree.. somehow I missed
that my intake (glass surface skimmer) is 2/3rs of the tank height. Cannot
keep it at front, so somehow squeezed in 45 degrees angle. Still skimming
surface but less efficient. Also I may struggle with flow for elocharis on left top corner
.. my own fault doing so freaky layout. no hopes lost yet, at least I think i did everything
possible so far to get some flow there. And filter is quite powerful for only 60-70L
of actual water in the tank. so fingers crossed

so far changing water every day for 35% about, to minimize possible issues
after flooding (excess of organics, nutrients etc)

My obsession with light needs to be controlled.. I think Radion will do great job on its own
but still have extra support in that lamp shade, 2x T5s 24w (just trying not to turn it ON)
I might just take out one daylight and leave Grolux on its own to give more reds if needed

As soon as amonia will drop (1-2ppm) and nitrites gone - my 16 Ember Tetra will
go in.. might add another few if I will feel too short.

The green'ish thingy on rocks looks very nice.. I really hope to manage keep it so and
develoop better.. For me it looks like a thick layer of algae (i hope Twinstar will not have a negative
effect on its growth)

some photos for update:

This is my favorite piece in this setup


And once planted the lamp shade does not look anymore as massive
as all the attention now is to the tank..


Thanks for watching this :)

That's a real education for the likes of me - you've really got the science of it! Looks deadly already
