Updated photos of tank







Tank is cycled... I ended up not really liking the HC and apparently didn't rinse it enough after the salt dip, which didn't prevent snail eggs.. so I pulled it out - also removed the pond snails... so far no return (though as I pulled them in their young state, I fed them to Notch, he was happy. Should there be more, I'm sure notch will dine.)

I've got a 15" mat of glossostigma coming in.. also going to add Barcopa and some dwarf sag. Still looking for a floating plant (don't want duckweed or salvia).... But all inhabitants are in the tank now - 1 betta, 3 ottos, 2 nerites.. Also got some frozen bloodworms for Notch... good treat.

It's the Flora.. but both tanks are basically the same stock tank - just different extras.. the flora comes with Co2 kit while the ebi comes with shrimp stuff...

Wow!! Nice tank.

Isn't that a lot for an 8 gallon - 2 nerites, a betta, and 2 otos?

Not at all.. http://aqadvisor.com/




You have plenty of aquarium filtration capacity.

Your aquarium filtration capacity for above selected species is 160%.
Recommended water change schedule: 16% per week.
Your aquarium stocking level is 101%. [Generate Image]

The stocking is just right.. it's a fully cycled tank and I do weekly water changes or at least 25% and that's taking an inch and a half off the dimensions for purposes of substrate. everyone has plenty of swim space and plenty of places to retreat if necessary - Two pieces of driftwood - while you can't see it because it's surrounded in plants, there is a little cave pocket in the middle of the driftwood for retreats.

Thanks! My boyfriend helped pick him out. We like his unique marble coloring.

I should probably take another photo... I've planted glosso, bacopa, and some dwarf sag in the tank now... the bacopa and the pennywart have grown.. also added some frogbit.
