The 3.5G is a rimless rectangular tank with black silicone. I bought it in early 2011 to house a half-moon betta. Went for a short vacation, came back home and there he is lying dry on the floor...
Then i decided to start a shrimp tank. I had a couple of danios from my 10g, so I temporarily put them in the tank after to help with the cycling. Have been rearing Cherry red shrimps for a months plus, then I realized how heavy maintenance it is to have a cherry shrimp. A little shift in water conditions, and they molt, if they're not ready to molt, they'll die molting. Also, I was having trouble to get some MALE shrimps to get them to breed. All I got from LFS seems to be female eventhough the shopkeeper says they are male..
But, Whatever, Now, I have a pretty betta in there. I haven't chose a name for him yet. I'll let my kid choose it for me later.
No CO2, No Ferts
Ikea Lamp with CFL bulb.
ADA Soil Amazonia
Rotala of some sort
Couples of DW that looks like a sunken ship!
very nice im planning on making a similaiar tank that is longer with jars for the shrimp to clean i like that moss, and i was also thinking of a stem plant like a banana for the shrimp i like it so far.
Ok, I did a rescape. Ditched the java fern. Removed some mosses. Dropped in a big chunk of rock in the middle. Planted some DHG(?), and rotala (taken from my 10g). IMO it looks better, but I feel there are still more room for improvements.
