Thanks in advance for your assistance which I certainly need!
I had 5 boys from 2004-2008 in separate unfiltered 1 gallon tanks (lots of water changes) and 1 female from 2002-2005 in 2.5 tank with a heater. She was AMAZING!
Despite my lack of knowledge back then, I did manage to change water every week!
Now that I've finished grieving them and need to prevent myself from buying a puppy, I impulse bought 2 CT girls, Prana (deep blue with purple) and Qi (turquoise).
I teach yoga and qi gong thus the names.
I have them in temporary housing while I prepare a Fluval Spec 5 gallon.
It was on sale for $79 including tax!
I want to plant following OldFishLady's Home Depot Strata-gy (organic miracle gro and sand).
I would love to use hornwort, java moss, java fern and 2 marimo balls.
And I need to divide and baffle the tank in a visually pleasing way.
All wise words and helpful advice welcome!
Also could I put one shrimp on each side of the divider? Do I need snails?
Nervous and excited!
