Hey all

Hey all. My name is Javi (yes that is my real name) and i am new to this forum, though i am not new to fish. I have kept everything fresh and saltwater in the past and then got away from aquariums as i had so many and kind of burned out. I decided that after about two years it was time again. So i set up a 5 gallon tank yesterday. It will be fully planted with live plants like java moss, java fern, anubias and apogenton (sp) and a few others maybe. I also bought my betta today which was not that plan since I wanted a mini cycle first. But he will live in a large bowl for a few days till all tests good. Oh his name is Wradley.

Welcome to the forum Javi. I love your name. I also love that you'll be giving a betta a nice planted 5gl home. Pics when you can. :)

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Well I have often thought it would be so much easier to buy ornaments and colored gravel, but i cannot do that. After years of fishkeeping i prefer the natural.

I used to only like natural colors and plants.. but then I experimented one day with black gravel and another tank with blue gravel and I fell in love! So now my tanks are filled with artificial decorations and gravel @.@ I can't bring myself to use really "out there" colors like pink or yellow...

Anyways, I had a couple years of fish keeping break as well! Now I'm back on track and couldn't be happier :D

Post updates and pictures! Your tank sounds lovely
