  2. Planted Betta Tanks
    Hello~ :I Ok, so I have some questions about attempting a NPT. 1. I have a 10g, heated tank (with a tetra whisper filter that came with the kit).

    FINALLY, IT'S HERE!!! :-P After weeks of preparation (I had to custom build a shelf-bridge to go over my two stands!), late nights of research (via this forum XP) and a plethora of pretty pennies, I have finally put together my first NPT! I started setting it up by rinsing out the tank and...

    Hey everyone! Alright, so I've got an empty 10 gallon tank with no hood and an AquaClear 20 filter. As much as I would like to hurry up and cycle as soon as possible, I have a few things that are holding me back. Because I intend to give Bo (and a possible shoal of Harlequin Rasboras)the...
