Gallium- that tanks looks really good even if it is for getting food for your goldfish am turtle!

Here are my tanks, they all don't have bettas though:
5.5g (betta in here)

3G (betta in here)- working on this (yes there is one lonely plant in here)

10g (betta in here)

2.5g (dwarf puffer)-really need to fix this!

55g (South American Biotope)

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes

Here's an updated pic of my 28 from a couple weeks ago, will post one from today when lights go on later, it's crazy how much plants grow in there after changing the lighting and adding co2!

This is from two days ago. I just bought a Willow Hygro plant, though and I'm trying to decide where to put it.

I'd like to put it behind the pot, but I'm worried that it'll block the filter intake?

Thank you!

A friend said I should be posting the whole tank and not just the water part. I didn't know if this thread extends to the filter too but I'll just post the whole tank anyways.

I place plant clippings in the filter to root. Some of the plants have been in there for a year or longer haha.


To give an idea of how fast the plants grow, the narrow sword in the left corner has grown 2 new leaves since I took the other photo. The plants in this tank grow crazy fast, except for the java moss, which I can't ever seem to grow. I'l going to toss it in a few days I think, since it became infested with green algae in the jar I removed it from and I doubt it's going to bounce back from that.

I LOVE these Show and Tell threads! Get lots of ideas but...unfortunately, need a napkin for all the drooling.

How well does that work for having plants take root? i have an intake filter, so it doesn't have a lid. It's giving me ideas. :D

It works pretty well. The benefit is the plants I have are ammonium lovers so they polish up the water pretty well. The ones that have been in there for a long time have rooted into my media so it's pretty impossible to remove them now lol. Usually the plants that like conditions on the moist side are the ones that root the best, but I've rooted everything from mint to roses in my HOB's. I take the lids off all my HOB's because I stick pothos in them right away for the filter benefits. The roots of the plant can host beneficial bactera as well as cycle bactera so there's really no downside unless you have not enough stock and you end up with 0 nitrates. I've never had that happen (yet) though.

My 10g community had 0 nitrates. There were TONS of plants in there. Rotala rotundifolia, dwarf green hygro, wisteria, java fern, rose sword, java moss, amazon frogbit, and duckweed.

So, are the plants that you have in the filter terrestrial?
