Alright. I hate this website. Hate it! First im addicted to bettas, then im convinced to get a 10gal tank. Nowafter reading the NPL how to setup, i really want one!!! Look what you do to me
Anyways. Whats the cost of possibly converting my ten gallon to a NPL?
Im pretty sure that i can get a good plant bundle on aquabid + some Trumpet snails. I really want them, OBL said that they airate the soil good.
So mainly i think the factors are the soil and whatever will top it, I think ill use the gravel i have now, mainly because its really nice and natural gravel, not the painted rock i use to have.
I was really hoping i could use my miracle grow soil i have, but thats not natural at all :P
So if i do everything right i dont have to use a filter at all? And does that also mean that the water changes are very very less? Itd be a lot easier to have a tank like this. i think the benefits out way, well any of the risks.
Edit* This would also help me for summer vacation. Ill be gone for two months, and this would allow my tank to just last the one month, then we take a break and come back for a few days, then after that we go back up. I could check on the tank and do maitainance when we come back down. (the fish will be with me in smaller tanks)
Would it work? Could the tank last a month with no human contact or overview? or would algae overgrow it?
I could also put a timmer on the light so it would turn on for 10 hours then back off.
