So I picked up a 5G metaframe at a swap not too long ago and finally got the wife's approval to set it up in our kitchen. It's going to be a low-tech dirt tank, probably with crypts, wisteria, salvinia, java moss, and java fern. Haven't figured out the lighting situation yet, but going to run to my LFS stores and Home Depot to see what I can find. No heater yet, still have to order that. The filter is coming in on Monday, it's the Zoo Med 501. Heard great things so I had to try it out. It's going to house a Dwarf Puffer

Anyway, onto some pictures:


Substrate: (It came with the tank, might actually use it as a cap)

I also have an old piece of driftwood around and started positioning it in the tank, but don't know which I like more...

Anyway, that's it for now. I'll keep this updated as I start doing things to this tank.

Who would have thought that plants like dirt?!
