This is my first post here. I am a parent of a 12 year old that decided she had to have a tank. So I had her set up a betta tank first. Told her she cannot have the super fancy salt water until she learns all the stuff she needs to know to have happy, healthy fish. She wanted it bad enough she spent her own hard earned chore money on it.
She got a 1.5 gallon Tetra Aquarium kit and bought a heater separate. 2-15gallon 50w submersible.
She started with an Anubius Nana, but now has 3 pieces of Money Wart and 4 pieces of Egeria Densa.
She has placed it all herself and has started to do her own chem tests with a freshwater master test kit. The Ammonia and Nitrate and Nitrite is fluxing a bit, but it is a new tank.
We used a piece of filter foam to impede the current from the filter...works great!
Tank is at max capacity with 1 glass shrimp in there as well. He is hard to see, but he is in the bottom right corner.
I am very proud of her as she intentionally made it asymmetric and lead all over always redirecting to the center. The big leaf pointing inward from the side is a betta hammock.
Any suggestions are welcome as I am learning some new things too. So far this forum has been an great place for information. Guess the next step for her is to upgrade to a bigger tank.
Here is the picture of her 1.5gallon with live plants.
