Wow, what is that mossy looking stuff on the surface of the water? It's nice

Here is my 2.5g with the water all cleared up. Extremely happy with the carbon pad I got off of amazon. Works like a dream in my nano filter.

It's actually two parts. The leaves are for the Fluval Chi center console thing and the trunk is just fake aquarium driftwood put up on it's side. I mean, if you examine it closely, you can tell it's two parts, but from most points of views it looks like one piece. I figured Fleur didn't care, lol, and I think it looks okay!

Thank you! Unfortunately my fish has a nasty tail biting habit. I moved him from a 5 gallon to the 2.5 in hopes that it would stop and I was lucky. He strangely seems much happier in the smaller tank and his tail is in the process of growing back now. Hopefully it will grow back to the way it was when I bought him. The pic in my avatar is what he looked like when I got him.

As for the cleanliness of the tank, I contribute that to a carbon pad and a poly pad that I found on amazon. I cut it to the size for my nano filter and its done wonders for the tank. Ill post the links below. I also tried adding some biomax to the bottom of the filter in hopes that it might aid in ammonia and nitrite reduction. Only time will tell though.
