I had a journal for my old 10G tank but it's now out of commission (...for now
) and has been replaced by my new 20G L, so I wanted to make a more appropriate thread.
I'm currently working on getting a proper light fixture for it (Petco keeps sending me the wrong size!) and that should be arriving soon if they don't flub up again. Anyway, this is how it looks at the moment:
The tank is divided twice and I have three betta boys in there:
I also have assassin snails because I have an ongoing bladder snail infestation. I recently attempted adding ghost shrimp (really should have waited longer to attempt them but I oopsed
) and most of them died because my params suddenly started fluctuating while I was out of town
. Last I checked there were at least two left. I'm trying my best to keep things stable and will probably try to add more in a month or two, whenever I'm convinced everything is stable.
Currently I need to work on getting a new background for it and obtaining plants that can go in the rightmost section once my new light arrives. I've also ordered some dwarf hairgrass I'm still waiting on...hoping that will grow okay! I may switch to soil and sand someday but right now I'm kind of intimidated by that and keeping with my plain ol' gravel and both liquid ferts and root tabs.
