Getting back into the planted tank scene. Picked up this tank during black Friday. Been looking for a tank as clean looking as this to match the style of my house. Now only to make sure that I dont mess up my house keeping up this tank.
Spec V 5.6 gallon tanl
7500K LED day & night lighting system
Overflow filtration system
Thinking about getting some Fluval Shrimp Stratum for my substrate with some HC for my carpet. Maybe add some stone to give it a mountain range look.
Still need ideas for what fish to put in it that will stay small that I can have a decent size school of. Thinking of 5 cardinals or neons but may consider some killifish. Also may eventually add some RCS.
These are nice fish but the prefer schooling so once you add in a few not sure if their requirements would be met in a small tank. Who knows you might be able to pull it off just as long as you do your water changes and doesn't overload the tank's filter. Either way most small fish such as what you choosed will do fine. I was tempted to get one of these myself but decided to put it off for another time. Good luck with the project, i'm sure HC is going to look great.
or blue eyed rainbowfish

Planted and scaped today. Starting the dry start method for a couple of weeks to get the HC rooted. Here is an image. For Fauna I am going to use green tetra's my lfs gets them regularly and i can put enough for a good size school
Had to replace an OTO that had White Fungus today. Also started to see baby shrimp all around the tank. The top of my rocks seem to be growing quite a bit of algae even though I have turned my light cycle down. Here are some pictures
Thanks this tank is coming along day by day. cant wait for the carpet to fill in and to have some trimmings to spread around this tank. looks like a lot of people got this tank, looking forward to seeing all the different ways it gets scaped
