I saw this section of this website and thought it might be fun to keep track of my tank in a place where people who actually enjoy this hobby can see it and comment (unlike instagram, haha). well here it is: i have two tanks, a 1gal lightly planted tank with a betta named Atlas and nerite snail. (pic soon)
and a 10 gal with 2 blue dwarf gouramis, some green neon tetras 4 golden mountain fish (i think thats what they're called) and 3 ghost Shrimp: this tank was originally a betta community tank with some cories and no gouramis but a huge outbreak of cyanobacteria and my ignorance as to what it was led to a massive die off and i'm currently rebuilding. here is what the tank looked like before my rebuild/revamp:
and here's the tank currently:
I have flourite as my substrate, several crypts, some java moss i just planted as well as an amazon sword, amazon microsword, some java ferns, rotala indica, and a few anubias. there's also some straggling dwarf hairgrass from when i thought i could get a carpet over a large substrate like flourite (wishful thinking i've found, unless someone has some secret for it :P) i'm running two spiral CFL's giving me just under 3 watt's/gallon (2.6) and i dose with Flourish.
any advice on this tank would be awesome i want to do a DIY CO2 system this summer when i move into a more stable living situation (in dorms right now), but i tried to do it and didnt have much luck with it last semester. =/
