Use caution with the java fern..apparently it takes nutrients predominantly from the water so that it's best not to bury the roots too deep (or just tie them to something and remove the risk of a dead one). Had to toss one thanks to this nonsense...

well....
i took my mom shopping the other day. and she fell in love with this crowntail male


and female betta.


so the 10 gal tank got setup for them. no plants or anything else besides a hide in it.


got an in-tank power filter, tank heater, and daylight 6500k bulb (but only a 15 watt not a 20 like i wanted).

now i am searching for my tree and plants i had planted on putting in this Zen Garden themed tank. i will update at the next phase, PLANTS.. then shrimp and cories...

thank you for reading

Erm...are they in the same tank with no divider? If so, no offence intended, but that is a disaster waiting to happen. :S If not, phew.

They are beautiful fish, though! :)

Life.

the male and female can't live together. Also, If you want a zen looking aquarium, look into iwagumi style planted tanks..be sure to do some research though as those can apparently be a pain if set up incorrectly

my mom is a bit hard headed, she wanted them together. i told her it was not a good idea. but she will nag me until she gets her way. so i have been sending her info on WHY they should not be kept together. i am hopeing she will understand

Phew! Thank goodness. Who has the big tank now? Or have you divided it? That tank is very pretty!
