4 planted Betta tanks

Thanks for checking out my tank journal. I am fairly new to the hobby, please feel free to leave suggestions. I will post the tanks one at a time and try to keep updates on them. Now on with the tanks.

1st tank up is for my male Betta Murray Rothbard. Murray lives in a modified Spec V. I adjusted the flow with a vertical spray bar. Out of the box the Specs have too much flow at the top of the tank for Bettas to be comfortable. The spray bar mod works well, but I do get a little build up on top of the water surface between water changes. I have also modified the overflow at the top of the tank to protect Murray's fins. Bettas like to rest on the overflow of Specs. I use this same mods on another Spec that I will post about at another time. I keep the top open and have replaced the factory light with a 18" beamswork plant evo. This light fits the Spec V perfect. I am using CaribSea Flora Max substrate. I have yet to notice any raise in PH or other problems with water parameters. The plants I have in this tank now are Staurogyne Repens, Echinodorus Vesuvius, Hygrophila Corymbosa,Cryptocoryne Parva and Cryptocoryne Wendtii green. Purchased the plants from The Green Habitat and Extraplant on e bay The Staurogyne Repens where from culture. I will post more tanks soon.
