Thanks. I really like the look of Jaspers new tank. I am sure he is a happy camper. Are all those real plants?
I have four live plants anubias, a sword plant, and I think its called Hornwart. The other plant I'm not sure of and I have two fake plants. I really like a planted aquarium. I was hoping that it would clear out all of my amonia but no luck. So still doing frequent water changes like 50%. This weekend I will probably do a 100% water change to try to knock it out entirely.
Oh water changes. If I didn't like redecorating so much they would bother me....everyone told me with a 2.5 gallon I'd have to do one 100% once a week, but I have ended up having to do them every 4 or 5 days. If a larger tank and cycling didn't seem so intimidating I'd probably try it.
Finally went planted. I ended up using EcoComplete, Amazon Swords, Hagen CO2 Diffuser, and added 4 cherry shrimp for good housekeeping. I'm going to add something for ground cover in the foreground but I've yet to make up my mind.
