This is my first soil tank. Also the Finnex Planted+ is amazing.

I was worried it wouldn't be full enough of plants to rest on by the time I got my betta from the transhipper, but snowstorms on their end and now the plants are escaping the tank. ((planning to cut glass for the lid, but it's just saran wrap right now))

And now I'm worried there might not be enough space for a betta to swim around! O_o

Well, both betta tanks got upgraded to Fluval Specs. Reuben had dropsy. He improved at 1st and now he's just stuck being bloated, unhappy and suffering. I did the kindest thing I could do and put him out of his misery.

Well, in light of that horrible news. My husband willingly encouraged me to drop $20 on a new betta and a new Fluval tank! *gasp!*

I just won my first betta on aquabid!! I'm so excited! I've already set up her new home. It's a 5g hex tank with customized biomedia. It is a soil based tank capped with black sand.

Flora:
- limnophilia
- microsword
- dwarf baby tears
- alternathera reinicki
- Crypt wendtii
- Staurogyne reprens
- Hygrophila corymbosa
- Anubias nana petite
- And my first every attempt at a java moss tree on driftwood. The java moss is looking a bit rough from shipment so hopefully it will perk up soon

**The tank is still a bit cloudy from a bacterial bloom but it is starting to clear up. Using seachem stability to jump start my cycle. Fingers crossed it is ready in time for my little girl's arrival!

Thanks fishy fishy! This tank has given me fits. My first real attempt at keeping "harder" plants and actually scaping it instead of just making a jungle lol. Will be interesting to see how it does!

Thanks Blu!! It has taken me forever to make a tank looked "scaped". This is my 8th dirted and planted tank. Each time it gets a bit better. My first couple tries just look like crazy jungles hehehe
