Yep, there is anubias in the little pot, and on the bigger hidey-hole pot. I thought the one in the little pot might not be doing so well, being actually planted in there, but on closer inspection it's only attached to the foam lining the pot, so I'm not quite sure what to do...

I don't have a lot of decor right now since I set the tank up last minute due to my impulsive buying of fish. I'm going to add some silk plants when I find some good, natural-looking ones. If anyone has recommendations, I will receive them with open arms

I was thinking about removing the plastic bamboo, but my little guy just loves hiding in it (if you see that bit of blue in the leaves near the top of the water, that's him ), so I might just keep it and just sand out the pointy parts.

I am a big anaibus person. If you enlarge my Photos you see one.

Almost ready for a new betta!

So my 5.5g has been cycling for about 2 weeks. I've been using the fish food method but I also threw in 4 or 5 small pond snails which I've since disposed of. I saw some teeny baby snails in there but I think I got most of 'em. Anyways, tested the water yesterday and today and my water is finally showing a large spike in Nitrites and they're are Nitrates! Hopefully by next weekend all the Nitrites will disappear so I can work on getting a new betta :D Since my first tank was a 10 gallon planted tank, this is the first time I've been able to see the cycle with my own eyes. I keep testing the 10gal planted, its been redone and up for 3 - 4 weeks, but nothing shows up on the tests. Those plants are working hard!

What would you judge the Ammonia level is? Is it just me or is it hard to tell the difference between the 0ppm and the 0.25ppm colors?


And this is the slightly changed 5.5gallon tank, sorry for the water spots lol:

Yes they are plastic. I know silk is perfered (which is what is in Claudius' tank), But I made sure these are unusally soft plastic plants. :)
