New Tank Journey!
I have landed and for the most part settled into living here in the UK. I have also bought a nice starter 5 gallon aquarium and filter ect. and have started it off with three bunch plants, hornwort, fern, and what I believe is wisteria of some sort...all is going well...I just need to find a fish now! I have two very well stocked pet stores within 10 minute walking distance from me, but unfortunately both were sold out of betta fish at the moment, new shipment comes in Wednesday so fingers crossed I find a good little companion.
I am a bit worried about the light levels for my plants, currently the only place I have to put it is on my desk is somewhat away from the windows, although once I move into my permanent apartment (its still being completed) that will change as it is larger, and has more window space. I will look into LED lights though.
Also the current from the filter seems a bit strong. The tank was a "starter" kit, so I'm not even sure how good the filter is, but I ran it all last night with no problems, again just worried the bubbling will be a bit much for my betta, would anyone suggest if I do notice him struggling, to try turning off the filter at night or for a couple hours a day, just to let him rest? Then again, I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Here we go!
I know its looks a bit barren right now, I'm considering adding some moss balls and a hide of some sort, or if I should just get more bunch plants...any suggestions?
