This tank started as a 10g in July of 2011, looking a little something like this after a few months:
And then this:
It was inhabited only by Gilbert the firefish and an assassin blue legged hermit... He killed all of my snails.
And maybe a few more that I forget
It had a 50W TopFin heater, a Koralia 425, and 2 BoostLED par 30 bulbs. I also tried a Subcurrent filter thing that can be seen in the first picture, but I found that it was finicky and didn't really provide any benefit but took up quite a lot of space in the tank.
Then I decided that I wanted to get something bigger. I decided a 20L was perfect. I also saw YankeePete's for sale thread for the 20L AIO wall he was selling, so I purchased one of those.
I also bought a used Current Sundial 4x24W T5HO fixture from another member of the forum. I decided I liked the different options for colour temperature that t5's provide, and I wanted to give it a try.
So I boiled up some old dry rock I had
And shizam we're cycling (seeded with some LR from the 10)
And then the FTS that was posted first at the top
