Ultimate Aquascaping - Help needed!
I currently keep my betta Sunchaser in a 10 gallon heated, planted, filtered aquarium. I have been doing a lot of research in aquascaping, and now I realize that my tank really isn't all that awesome. I have two logs and arock with about a billion random plants stuck haphazardly through the gravely, and it's really not pretty.
So what does one do with this situation?
One buys a whole new tank for Sunchaser's pleasure, of course. :D
I currently have an empty 10 gallon, and I want to take my time and make it a stunning habitat worthy of my betta. I read somewhere about making a background of broken slate and moss which I think is cool, and about spray painting the back, but does anyone have any ideas for making the actual middle part amazing?
What about lighting for the plants? What is best? And should I use a dirt floor like I've read about and "Cap" it with sand or gravel? What plants do best with bettas?
I was hoping to photograph this and do an aquascaping post on my blog, but first I have to know what I'm doing. x.x
Can you guys please help me come up with the very best planted tank ever?
