Salvaged Tank Emersed Grow
So I kind of destroyed my acrlyic 6.5 gallon bookshelf fish tank the other day. I was getting it ready for a co2 planted tank. I painted the back dark grey by accident when I wanted to paint it black. Started to strip the paint with acetone and it absolutely destroyed my tank, not structurally, just cosmetically. So instead of throwing it away I decided to use it as a grow tank!
Today is day 1. 10/07/15
I used Organics Vigoro organic and natural potting mix.
I planted 1 pot of dwarf hair grass on the left side and am going to plant something else on the right.
I am using the stock 15w light that came with the tank and it is also covered with saran wrap to keep humidity in.
