Here is Mr. Plum's tank! I upgraded him from a 2.5 gallon to his new 5 gallon! He seems to LOVE all the space and he is having fun swimming through the new log toy I bought him! I keep looking at the tank expecting to see him then freaking out when I don't. When I go check it out, he is hiding under the log. I plan to put some more silk plants in his tank and maybe another hiding spot. I am also going to get a flouresnt light bulb. Either way I think he likes his new tank. Yay for upgrades!
My very young planted tank atm- Undivided because of Baller's left pectoral loss and general uncertainty if he's gonna be alright. Booo. Sved seems to be enjoying it, though.
Just kinda threw in some of everything to watch it fluff out over the next few weeks.
The day it was redone, a few days ago. Already fluffier everything, which is fun. The chain sword decided to be a floating plant and joined ranks with the frogbit, however. Oh well bro, do whatcha like.
My crack team of algae eaters- Mama and Papa. Sved's got mixed feelings about them,as well as the MTS. Oh well.
Thankyou upngo and Sweeda88!
I generally have a brown thumb too..I went through a bit of plants before I found a few that could survive in my tanks enviroment...anacharis, val, and cabomba didnt stand a chance in my tank...haha...The cabomba was growing nicely until I trimmed it so I am sure that was my fault! haha... Now, that rotala I dont think I could kill it if I tried...I trimed it down to 2" twigs and within a week or so its 4". 0_0
Rotala is a nice hardy stem plant and can be trimmed short so it will bush out over time..
Pewpewpew your tank looks really nice!I had a fish lose 3/4 of his pectoral once...I called him nemo for a little while..haha....It took a long while but it did grow back. I hope Baller makes a quick recovery. are those nerite snails in the last photo? if so, do you know if they will eat hair algae? I seem to have a huge hair algae issue in my 5 gallon.
