Funny how the ones marketed for reptiles are cheaper, when it's the exact same thing! I felt pretty clever when I figured that out, LOL

I did some major cleaning in Ammo's tank after a recent algae invasion, and added two apple snails (I had to put Ammo in his cup for a day & night so they could do some work without him picking on them, silly boy)... also made some other adjustments (lowered the light period and temperature) and it is doing good so far!



I also took out some of the rocks that didn't have any moss attached to them, just seemed like they were magnets for a place for the algae to attach itself to, and it doesn't look too "empty" without them in there :)
Thinking about getting some black cardstock or posterboard and experimenting with backgrounds on both of my tanks... hmmm.
It is actually working quite well, I woke up this morning to find Maxwell perky and warm while I was cold. lol

And beautiful tank! I had one of those a few months back, I divided it. It was also one of my favortie tanks, mine kept getting aglae everywhere though.

Thanks, I do love it! It's so perfect for bettas. I recently battled some nasty algae as well...





I lowered the tank temp (82 down to 78), shortened my photoperiod (12 hours to 8 hours), threw in a couple of snails, did a lot of picking and scrubbing and it has cleared up for the time being... *knock on wood*

Today I went to the LFS to get sand for Emo's tank, they didn't have much to choose from but I did find this great little piece of driftwood! It's just what I needed for his anubias :)



He LOVES it, has been swimming all around it and amongst the braches :P

I have enjoyed looking through this thread SO much! Thank you everyone, your tanks are all absolutely beautiful and inspirational.

Here is my tank. I have been researching for over a year and a half and finally got it set up the past month or so. For now there is no fish in it. I feel like too much of a noob right now to get one and don't want to kill or hurt an animal due to my lack of intelligence on aquarium keeping. So, for now it's strictly for decoration. I hope you all don't kick me out of here for not having a betta! :P


On the bright side, it is a piece of cake to maintain! No algae, poop, floating debris or cloudy water! I don't have to stress about water changes or chemicals. :)
