Planted 3 Gallon Tank!

Hey!
Thought I would show my planted 3 gallon tank I love it! These pictures are before 2 of the plants died, due to lack of lighting Hoping to do more planted tanks, with better lighting

Very happy with it! And so is Maize I can't believe how fast it cycled, and so far it's stayed perfectly cycled for 3 weeks.

Nice tank!

The java fern in the front left, shouldn't be planted though, it should rather be tied to a big rock or driftwood or left floating. Having it planted can make it rot.

Love how you did the pot pouring out the white gravel it is a super nice touch that would draw you to the tank from anywhere in the room.

Very nice tank. I also like the way the white gravel "spills" onto the black substrate.

I actually took the white stones from my cycled 15 gallon tank, as to cycle the 3 gallon faster! Worked like a charm

1 day I was in disbelief! So I checked the water parameters 2 times a week for 3 weeks before I added my fish. And it's still perfect over 8 weeks later!
