Decent light, I was mistaken by one of the photos. I actually prefer a cooler, purple tone light. I miss having a Betta, one of the few fish with a personality.

Ever think going high tech with such a small tank?

I guess I could but it would defeat the whole idea for me. And it grows 95% of plants I throw into it.

I do a drop or 2 of my regular pre-mixed ferts, say, every week or so. Good idea: I should try excel.

That's it, I'm sending my female endlers to your place for bootcamp. They don't like up and they SWIM when I try to count them. Note to self, so long as they are swimming assume they are all there, and before long I will have no idea how many there are anyways!

Beggars are not choosers: she gotta travel first class (USPS).

Her and a Great Dane: crime against Nature?

Crap. Now I gotta do the vase tank again... OVT, I appologize in advance for when my wife calls to chew you out, but I have to deflect as much blame as possible, and she knows how to check my browser history, lieing would just compound her rage.

Yours can talk to mine, I am sure they will find a lot in common.

Thumbs up

This is great! Super nice tank and it seems like everything is doing very well. This would be sweet for my desk just wondering about what I would do during the winter. What do you plan for heating during the winter? You can get some small heaters, but it's probably better for the fish and plants to have some tech tank rather than a dead fish tank

Also it seems like everything is going well, but if you ever need filtration I have the Azoo palm filter which worked well on my 2.5 and may work on your vase. It is a HOB though so it might not fit. Then there is a hagen elite internal filter, but while it is small, it still might take up to much space in such a small environment.

Good luck with the tank it looks very nice!
