Nice tank by the way.

Edit: by the way, java fern can be planted, just don't bury the rhizome. Only bury the roots.
I made a few changes. I cut holes in the tube and put filter media (the blue foam stuff) btw the intake openings and the filter media that it comes with. I out 3 pieces to baffle it. I also have it o. The lowest setting. So far so good but it does make a rattling sound I can't figure out how to stop. :/

My filter also occasionally rattles, and it is almost always because it is rattling against my hood. I just shift my hood and the rattling stops. Not sure if your solution would be so easy though .

Yes I know but nothing bad will necessarily happen as long as the Rhizome is not buried. Having just the roots planted is fine.

I have mine planted in the substrate with just the roots in the sand/soil and it's been thriving for over two months that way :)

This is Solus' first tank.
A small temporary 1 gallon :c
He was in it for a couple days, but seemed really happy... It's weird, I think he liked this tank more than his current one.


This is the first try at Solus' 5 gallon.
He was in it with three neon tetras.
Does anyone like this version better than the other two below?


This is my current version. I'm gonna add more plants.
Took out the neon tetras. I think Solus should have the 5gal
all to himself. However he did get along with them, wasn't aggressive at all,
just flares.


And in the light.
Solus flares everytime he sees me now :c is he mad about the tank change?

I don't see the pictures, either.

Sometimes when their surroundings change they will flare for awhile to claim their new territory.

Moved some things around in the tank. Propagated the Wisteria some more. I'm hoping that it will continue to take off like it has been, and I'm planning on getting another Amazon Sword, since it's growing like a weed and I want one on each side of the divider.

Love the Fluval Chi! The dark colors you have going on the bottom work really well.
