Nice tank BettaCane! I'm thinking the moss and java fern on the driftwood will be spectacular.

RowdyBetta, it's a 10 tank. Thanks for the appreciation!

This is my first attempt at a NPT and so far I am very happy with it, but I am expecting some setbacks...Mainly because that's what always happens to me when I try something new, lol! My tank is 45 gallons with Floramax substrate, a bunch of plant clippings I got from peachii on this website + one Anubias from Petsmart. My light fixture is a 30'' long with one 6500k bulb and one colormax bulb. It's a bit short for the tank but I couldn't afford anything more at the moment. The filter is an Emperor 400 and is quite powerful, so i may have to create a baffle at some point.

I arranged everything yesterday morning, so the water is still cloudy, and I still need to buy a heater and some tank ornaments before I add fish. I'd also like to get some sand to cap the substrate, so it'll be a while before everything is finished. I love mollies, so I'm hoping to make this tank a molly community. :)

I hope so! I had to rubberband that java moss to keep it on. I ended up sticking some in some holes in the driftwood. They gave me an insane amount. I don't know what to do with all of it!!

Also my java fern looks like its going to have daughter plants (I think thats the right term). It has all the little black dots on some of the leaves.
I'm planning on adding one on the other side if it ends up making more plants :]

Those daughter plants can be a bit unappealing at times. With CO2 injection and fertilization, my java fern is multiplying worse than rabbits. I've resorted to throwing the daughter plants away if they are too small, or collecting them for ... nothing? haha!

LOL
The fish have to get their veggies some how xD


Those pics are a bit older. I've taken out the fake plants and, yet again, rearranged some of the plants. I'll have to take/post updated pics later on.

Yeah. I was going back through the thread, so I am sorry if I was replying to a really old post. Can't wait to see your new setup.
