Betta Fish and Betta Fish Care - giypsy's Album: The 10g
The 10g
. . . yep, FredFish now has a 10g. Foundation planting is in. The plants here were chosen for variety, color and interest. Another planting, probably in the second week of October 2009 with the addition of algae eaters in anticipation of algae bloom. However, I may be able to wait on the livestock due to the property of the Japanese moss balls cutting down on other types of algae.
