So I got a 6 gal that I am in the process of setting up, might as well show you and get some tips.
Here it is, play sand substrate with river rocks, a rock tunnel thing, horn wort and what I believe is red ludgia ( or something like that) I have soem Java fern to go in tomorrow once I anchor it to some more rocks. And it will have Young Niel the moss ball once I move the fish over lol I am thinking of valisper in the back and sides?
I set up the tank yesterday and rinse the sand an excessive amount, how long do you think it will take for it to be not cloudy?
Here is a comparison with his old tank ( current)
And his tank as of now. I took the substrate out for ease of cleaning and moved his rock into the 6 gal he likes just the plants anyways.
