My GF has been jealous of my planted tanks for quite some time now, and always wanted one, but was intimidated to start one herself. So for christmas I got her a sleak looking fluval ebi (she had a similar idea and bought me one too, haha) and some extra stuff to help get her started.
I thought I would share her progress, as i'm impressed with how things are coming along.
Aquarium - 8 Gallon Fluval Ebi
Substrate - Flourite black - Fluval Shrimp Stratum
Filtration - Fluval nano internal filter
Lighting - Fluval 13W CFL
Liquid C02 and ferts
Heating - marineland(75F)
1x Halfmoon Plakat Betta
1x Ramshorn snail
Soon to be added...
School of Sparrow Rasboras
Bamboo Shrimp, or something along those lines.
It's great to see her excited, and enjoying the hobby so far. Excited to see what comes from all of this...i'll be sure to keep this thread updated as it progresses.
