My fiances x-mas gift tank build

So as I type this my fiance is sleeping away and has no clue of her up coming x-mas gift. I got her a fluval spec v. She has been bugging me about wanting a Betta tank for her office, and since her boss is a family friend I txted him to get the o.k. before moving on... Now I just have to find a nice piece of driftwood for it then shop for some plants, fish, and shrimps!

Pic of the "goods" so far before i hid them.

I'm hoping I'll be getting one of those under the Christmas tree myself! I'm sure she'll love it! Merry Christmas!

So I set her tank up today... I couldnt wait till x-mas to give it to her. here are some pics of it and the plants she picked out for her tank.

This was the tank before we went to lunch. when we came back and before i started to plant it had already cleared up!


Her plants


Planted.


Def need to still get a heater and then fish after her x-mas break which will give it time to cycle!
