Fantastic ideas for a 3-ft planted tank, please?
So, I lost all my precious wild bettas --and-- their 3ft tank in the move to the new house (long story, and I am still really sad about this).
Probably in November I will be able to replace the tank. I have a lot of red-gold sandy gravel and low light plants (anubias and java fern, absolute tons of those) and some nice pieces of driftwood.
I also have a fat little bristlenose pleco and seven large Darwin algae shrimp living in a big plastic tub for now, so those will be the first residents of the November tank. I'm not sure what else might go in there, maybe some more wilds (LBF has very kindly offered me an ideii female - I am pondering this, as they are stunning but highly aggressive fish..), but I'd like other ideas, too.
Maybe I'll actually get two new tanks, seeing as Aang could do with an upgrade too. I'm thinking, a 2-footer there with a stand and hood. We'll see. ;) But for now, the 3-footer!
As I won't be moving for quite some time (I hope) I am open to the idea of a large NPT. But I'm also willing to look at other ideas for planting and stocking.
Things I like:
- plants in general
- natural looking tanks
- fish with personality
Things I'm not keen on right now:
- CO2 reliant plants
- fake plants
- cheesy ornaments
- neon tetras
I really do need help cheering up/finding the enthusiasm to move on after losing the strohi, so your pics and suggestions will be gratefully received!
