Thumbs up 48 Hours in...

Keeping you guys posted lol, i added the Cardinal Tetras last night and so far so good.



Along with them i also have Watson(mystery Snail), Marty(zebra snail), 4 ghost shrimp, and 6 Cherry Shrimp. They all look like they're doing well and are healthy, including the plants(already look like they're growing! ).

However, I'm QTing Sherlock right now i noticed some fin-rot on him tonight so im gonna be treating him for that. I must've slipped up on his water care while setting up this bigger tank . Good thing i decided not to move him over right away.

He's still very active and all so im gonna wait till im done his treatment and things settle before moving him. Should be good in about a week or so.

Wow! It looks like a great system! I hope that Sherlock feels better soon so he can enjoy his new digs~

Hopefully my tank (just set it up today! XD) can look so good!

Looks good. Lots of nice looking plants.

Can I make a suggestion tho, I think the tank needs a black background so it can hide some of the wires and heater. It will also make your Tetras & plants' colors stand out a lot more. Just a sugggestion. Hope it helps.

Betta Tank: Fluval Spec III. Fluval CF 13W Light. CaribSea Midnight Black Floramax Substrate. Aqueon Pro 50w Heater. Micro Sword. Amazon Sword. Anubias. Branch Wood.

Reef Tank: Oceanic 29g BioCube Rimless. Ecoxotic Panorama LED. Tunze 9002 Nano Skimmer. Vortech MP10w. Rena SmartHeater 300W.

Talking NPT update, 1 week and 2 days

SO here's an update on my NPT, everything's doing good: only thing is the lilacina lost some leave due to adjusting to the deeper water (and the little less amount of light) but all is well .

I plan on getting more lighting when they get bigger to make sure light gets to the bottom but we'll see, for now i'm too poor of any of that lol.







And...Here's a short youtube clip if you guys want a better look at it:

But yea the Cabomba got huge...that and the Hornwort have really been growing fast. Water stays nice and clear -- other than the slight ting it have from the driftwood, but that's alright. So far it looks good and im excited .

Still have Sherlock in QT for finrot tho, so that's a downer(found out i have ammonia in my tap water and it was keeping him from getting better). But he's on the road to recovery, so hopefully he can enjoy it soon.

On the background thing... Since you mentioned having little money left, you could take a few peices of black construction paper (used for children crafts all the time...) and tape it to the back for now. Just my two cents.

By the way, Love the tank!

I am the Emeraldmaster, hear me roar... *meow*

And after I roar at you, may I entice you to look at me fishies! http://www.bettafish.com/members/emeraldmaster-albums.html
