Hi all, I am a newbie and hope to get a betta soon...
I ordered online today:
Fine Black Aquarium Gravel 2.5kg
Tropica 1-2 Grow Limnophila sessiliflora Live Plants
Tropica 1-2 Grow Hygrophila pol Rosanervig Live Plants
Tropica 1-2 Grow Glossostigma Elatinoides Live Plants
Tropica 1-2 Grow Myriophyllum mattogrossense Live Plants
Tropica 1-2 Grow Bacopa caroliniana Live Plants
Hobby Planting Tweezers - 20cm
TetraPlant Complete Substrate 2.8kg
Poster Background 3D Rock 49cm
All due to be delivered on Tuesday..
I already have a spare Arcadia Eclipse 35 litre tank, a 50w heater & a fluval u1 filter and I want to create a beautiful live planted tank... and then when the plants have grown, I eventually want to add a single male betta :)
The tank will be heavily planted (as you can see from what i've ordered), so i am wondering will i still need to use a filter? (i plan on using media from my community tank in the new filter so it is going to be cycled already :)... but i am thinking if its heavly planted will i even need to use a filter?...
I will put this tank in my room as i already have a rio 125 in our main living room :)
I will update with pictures as plants/substrate should arrive by tuesday (ordered from warehouse aquatics)
Here is a pic of the tank...
