Hi, I'm new to your forum. I love all your fun and unique set ups, especially those of you with beautiful live plants. Mine are artificial b/c I don't have confidence in my ability to grow live ones, and these are very easy to care for!
My fish really likes the grass.
The tank is a Fluval Spec, 2 gallons. It has a hidden 3 phase filter and a pump behind the back panel. There's room for a heater and thermometer too.
This pic was with flash and it makes the plants look terrible. In natural light they look really transparent and realistic. It shows my little friend's bright turquoise color though. He likes the little space between the grass and the glass. He also likes his tank mate, a rams horn snail.
I'm in week two of cycling this tank. I'm conditioning the water with aquarium salt, Aquafin cycle, and Aquafin aqua plus. I'm doing 20% water changes almost daily even though the person at the pet store recommended twice a week. I'm kind of paranoid about ich, fungus, fin rot, etc. Wish me luck!
