Bright green... Pink. Mostly bright colors and maybe bright blue.

cute!

What are the tree little white balls in the bottom?

I would go with the opposites on the color wheel, red is opposed by green and blue by orange.

I would go with a orange or yellow gravel with green plants. Light color toys will help also, if he is the one dark spek int he tank it might help show him off more.

If you are looking for something more subtle you can always do a white or light natural tone substrate with a light wood log, orange toys and green plants.

Just updating... I just added new ground cover grass, hope it grow well.

I also made a new smaller flower "Hammock" from the silk and foam top of a water lili that turned out to be too big for my tank. You can see the yellow flower stuck to the back wall.

I have one more plant in quarantine, a tall grass that will camouflage the heater.

The next to go is are the blue plants on the filter baffle. I am looking for blue silk plants for that area.


2.5 Gallon.

Yup, ate it. Took me a while to figure out that's what was causing his swim bladder issues, but once I got rid of the sand he had no more problems.

Lovely setup! I am looking to build a tank like your 20 gallon. Is there anyway you can tell me what materials you used (for the dividers, for instance) and how you went about constructing it?

Thanks!

I recently(a weekish ago) purchased some more anacharis. 2 bushels of it. Well actually 1 small bushel and 1 BIG bushel(i think the "pet care" guy was mad I called him out on his "liability").
So I got more plants. And their flourshing nicely. I also plopped(not literally) Mr. Clean into Spike's tank. I've been monitoring the water levels very closely. 1st half of the week I was testing twice a day. Then to once a day. Now every other day and will soon be slowing down to once a week before each water change.
The plants have just been eating up every bit of ammonia. I'm not getting any! Flat out ZERO. Also, Spike and Mr. Clean have been getting along well too.
Anyhow, here's a short video of Spike, Mr. Clean and some of the tank. Oh and a kitty xD
