I enjoy OFL's tank too. I don't know if I can get into CO2 so I prefer to start with plants that are fine without.

My bettas probably won't care. While I wait for orders, they seem to be happy enough with low light floating plants for now. Maybe they just don't know better yet.

current pets: Alejandro Marmalade

Rehomed bettas (because of my move):
Cornelius Buttknuckle, Limoncello Dandy Lion, Cumulus Meriweather, Nimbus McCloud

RIP
Pinkerton Flowers and the fish formerly known as Prine Purplius LeGrape

I looove these tanks! I didn't know this topic existed, definitely subscribing and will be uploading photos once I get Kaze's planted aquarium set up.

I don't use or inject any CO2 in any of my tanks-however, the natural decomp that can be created especially in the soil based systems-create its own natural CO2...

I want to play! I have plants in all but one of my tanks (because the plants for the newest tank are on their way from Asia lol). Is it okay if I include a tank that has no bettas in it? It's the biggest and has the most plants in it...




Name of your Tank: Octopus' Garden
Substrate type: Pool Filter Sand
Dimensions: ?
Is It A Natural Planted Tank: No, though I wish it was one!
Water Volume: 20 gal. long
Water Temperature: 76-80 F
Water change schedule: 50% every Sunday
Age of tank: almost 2 months
Co2: no
Lighting: Fluorescent strip light, 20 watts (yes, I need a new bulb....)
Fertilizers: none, but will probably add API root tabs
Stock: 2 Dalmatian Mollies, 4 neon tetra, and 1 Mr. Snail
Plant Species: Anubias, Hornwort, Wisteria, Dwarf Hairgrass (I think...), Microsword, Java Fern, Betta Bulb, and Marimo Ball

ETA: It looks like a hot mess is this picture. Hornwort taking over every corner - I swear it's better in person... :D
