Thought I'd show you guys my 5 gallon that I just redid.
It was a walstad tank and something went wrong with my setup. Very little plant growth other than my 4 leaf clover (which was slow as well) so I dumped the whole thing, replanted the plants in some petco black sand. When I dumped the soil it smelled kinda bad like eggs and I saw the occational burp of bubbles so I knew the soil went anerobic and my betta now has tail rot within a week! I knew the quality of the water was bad. Hopefully this helps Ted (the guy in my profile picture) heal up. He's an old guy and has been through SOOOO much in my learning about aquariums. He's almost 5!
Plants from Left to right (incase anyone is wondering)
Sunset Hygro (green cept for the top leaves which are kinda pink)
Xmas moss and Anubias on driftwood.
Cryptoparva infront of sunset hygro
Rotatila Indica (green and pink) behind anubias in picture
Wisteria to the right of driftwood
4 leaf clover (Marselia quadrifolia)
Random small amazon in back corner. I have its brother in my 46 and it's ginormous. I hope this one stays small. Seems to stay the size of the aquarium oddly enough.
PS The nerite is dead and I kept the shell. The MTS is real. I made a point to save it and a couple of it's babies. I like MTS
