6.3 Gallon Nano

Well this one started out and was initialy purchased for a small QT tank. Ive been using it for about 4 months now as a isolation tank for my male betta that took a beating from a female to help heal his fins in a saline solution. Hes all healed up now and Ive decided its going to be his new permenant home.

The tank itself is more tall than wide and isnt that deep, but it does the trick! So as for filtration Im using a pretty poor CristiProfi 100 internal filter that came with it. But for the stock im going to house that should do fine. If needed I can upgrade in the future.

Plants! Well for the plants Ive stuck to low light and low nutrient requiring plants that are suited to nano tanks. They are;
  • Anubias Barteri on a small peice of driftwood (for some added hardscape)
  • Ceratophyllum Demersum for background plants to cover heater and filter
  • Cryptocoryne Becketii as a mid to rear ground
  • 2 Sagittaria Subulata as front ground plants
The plants should be here soon but Ill put some pictures up of the aquarium before the plants are added. Thanks for looking!
