I just received my new 2.75 gallon bowl. It wasn't cheap but I really wanted something 2 or more gallons that I could put Cpt. America in and have a nice planed tank. I don't have room for my 5 gallon since I got my 20 long and I have some fish that arn't so beta friendly in there
I have a hydor under substrate filter 7.5 watts. I'm planning to get either black sand or black floramax.
I'm trying to decide on filtration, yay or nay? I was thinking about getting a small sponge filter, but I'm not sure if its necessary.
Also, What low light plants would do best in a small setup like this? Obviously Java fern, Maybe some anubius, maybe on a small piece of driftwood? I like the grass looking plants too. Maybe some that could grow out of the water? Suggestions?
Will I need a top for this tank? I know with the labrynth organ betas need warm humid air so I'm guessing its a good idea. I was thinking about doing a custom acrylic lid, But that would knock out the amphibious plant Idea.
For light, I was planning on rigging up a LED that I already have. But the tank already sits under a Daylight bulb next to my night stand so the LED would just be for viability.
Is there anything else I'm forgetting here? Tank/bowl, heater, substrate, filtration, plants, hood and lighting. I think that covers everything.
I will attempt to post some pics once the project is underway, but my connection is pretty bad so I can make no promises...
