update: working heater and thermometer! now waiting for eco complete. should be here friday!
I have the fastest snail in this tank right now, along with three other babies (smaller than a 1/2 cm. (i'd say 3mm)
got some plants in today! i dont want to post pictures until i get a substrate cap/more eco complete!
but here is some moss that i got (dont have anything in the tank to put it on yet, in search of a center piece but can't seem to pull the trigger)
put the CFLs in today and set up a timer for two 3 hour periods with a two hour break, 6 total hours!
i will be posting pictures when i get more substrate. right now the tank is a mess with floating stem plants and all sorts of stuff since I dont have enough substrate to keep stems down
