Default 30G Progress...

First picture from a month ago - couple days after I got the fish. Have added two plants and a backdrop since.
Now finally swapped out the substrate.
Next on the list is getting some snails to sift through the sand, add driftwood and more plants so i can get rid of the plastic ones.
Will likely need a stronger light, too.
I am still debating on the merits of a 3d background - 12" isn't really enough room for a large piece of wood and a background as well...

Added more wood.... not sure about the sand. The plecos leave a lot of "dust bunnies" to clean up all the time....20190704_092440_1562361930088.jpg

Added some plants and more driftwood... it's a bit of a mess right now because, well, some nameless mystery snail escaped and I tore the entire tank apart looking for him, whilst he was hiding several feet away behind my desktop PC.

The green stuff at the top are episcia cuttings I was trying to root and grow over the tank edge. Haven't quite figured out how to anchor them (properly) yet....

Apply some silicone on the edge and let cure. Put a dab of crazy glue on the silicone and then the wet roots....VIOLA!

The reason for the silicone bed is to allow the removal of the crazy glue dab. Otherwise it will be permanent.

I like that idea. With a minor edit. I think I'll try gluing the plants to suction cups. Got a box full here somewhere....
