I've been lurking on these forums for awhile and have decided to post! I've had Artemis for a month now and have had him in QT in order to heal his massive fin rot. He's recovering well and has a lot more color now. I've got his new home a Fluval Spec and was looking for advice on how to begin it as a planted tank.
I've got MG Organic Potting Mix that I've sifted to remove the small wood pieces and rocks. I plan on putting about 3/4" of dirt and then a gravel cap. I've also got a small 10 watt Marina
pre-set heater for the back pump chamber. As far as lighting I will go with the stock LED light and I'm planning on only low light plants like Anubias Nana 'Petite'
and Java fern
. I'd also like to carpet the bottom with Dwarf Hairgrass
. I've read through alot of cool threads on this forum and have gain a lot of knowledge. All of the bettas on here are beautiful and I can't wait to get Artemis back to being healthy and beautiful.
Here are some pics of the unboxing.
I look forward to your advice on how I should proceed. Thanks!
