Hello all, I started a 2.5 gallon planted tank about two months ago for my girl friend. The goal was to make it beautiful but also low maintenance for her, yet a healthy environment for the betta.
lighting: 13W CFL desk lamp roughly 13" from substrate
maintenance: DIW top offs when necessary
plants: dwarf sagg, star grass, red tiger lilly, frogbit, bacopa monneiri, rotala rotundifolia, wisteria
fauna: one beautiful betta (Comet), many malaysian trumpet snails, one red ramshorn snail, numerous types of micro fauna
As for pics I will post a bunch tomorrow. And sorry about not starting this journal a lot earlier but I didn't think the tank would be doing as well as it has.
