This project has been a long time in the making and as I await my final plant order to arrive, I decided I would start progress thread for this tank.
This tank is meant as an upgrade to my existing 5.5g that houses my wifes beloved betta 'agh' (pronounced OCK). It means white in her language...he was named in petco under crappy lights where he appeared to be a white betta. He is in fact blue.
So anyways, here are some specs for the 45f
filtration: eheim 2213 with gush glassware
lighting: diy led
co2: paintball tank with gla inline diffuser
substrate: amazonia powder type
hardscape: yamaya and branch wood
HC, hygro kompakt, hygro araguaia, fissidens, flame moss, mini pelia, anubias micro, anubias nana petite, bacopa (unknown sp), hydrocotle.
one spoiled rotten betta
here is the tank thats being upgraded:
and here is the new tank with a rough hardscape plan:
I still have to get a diy stand fabricated for the light to hang from as well as receive my final plant shipments. I hope to get this project planted and moving by this coming weekend. I'll be posting more pictures when I dont risk waking my newborn son.
Thanks to all those forum members I recently purchased plants from and big thank you to Frank from ADG for letting me come and rummage through piles of hardscape materials in the warehouse while answering all my questions!
