Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and the hobby.
I bought an Aquarius 5 gallon semi-hex kit for my niece, only to find out that her father had already gotten her a kit, so I kept the one I bought for myself.
I was originally going to keep a cool water tank, but was unhappy with the stocking choices so I bought a heater. I don't yet know whether or not I am going to use a filter. I apologize for the image quality.
Lighting: 5k fluorescent daylight hood
Substrate: A few scattered river stones with black poster board under tank
Flora: Java moss and moneywort
Fauna: Undetermined; I was going to go with the betta, but now that it is completely filled, I am tentatively hoping for other options, perhaps a school of nanofish.
And this is my niece's tank, she picked out all the décor, though I bargained her down to black gravel with neon pieces instead of all neon gravel. There is a large handful of java moss hidden behind Squidward's house because I have decided all tanks should have live plants.
Close up of the only tenant, Mr. Fish:
Stocking or general suggestions are welcome for either tank, though I can go ahead and tell you that the décor in Mr. Fish's home is unlikely to be changed as it isn't up to me.
