Soil base
capped off with tahitian moon on one side and white on the other
more water wisteria
java fern
Attach java moss to mopani
add some shrimp and see if I can find any nerites or ramshorn snails locally
duckweed
possibly Amazon Sword
I'd love to try DHG but I'm not sure if yet

I've always loved the look of your tank! How come only one boys has a floating tube?

So I have decided to purchase another Betta since my Ryou died :( This one is a 5.5 Tetra from Walmart and is still a work in progress. I am only having one hang up that is preventing me from fully furnishing the tank and that is the smell. Would anyone know how to combat this?

The tank shouldn't smell....

Actually, tanks do have an earthy smell to them, if you put your nose right in it. It should smell bad though, and you shouldn't be able to smell unless you are right on top of it.

Carbon filter removes all smells from water sometimes when you but decorations even if you rinse the they give a smell to the water well that's the purpose of the activated carbon

I obviously meant that it shouldn't smell bad in my post, not should

the purpose of activated carbon is to cover up a problem in the tank?
I prefer to solve problems rather than put band-aids on them. If the tank smells, there's a reason....

Too, tanks can smell bad even with the use of carbon.

I think you got me wrong is not like a band aid what I'm trying to say is that if you added something new to the aquarium some times that is what makes the water smell so the carbon helps you to get rid of whatever came out of that decoration

I've got a TON of decor (used to have 18 show tanks) and have never had it make the water smell, but I see what you are saying and agree.
