Ok so.. out of the blue my mother asks me to setup my spare 4gallon finnex tank for her in the living room. This sounds normal but my mom was never really into this type of...hobby.
with that said, i want to make her a nice simple clean looking set up.
What I got:
4 gallon finnex tank.
26 finnex light
finnex px360 filter
some driftwood i kept from tom barr's stuff. still looks good after it's been dried out.
as for plants i'm not entirely sure what i want.
i have what i think is still christmas, could be mini xmas that hasn't been trimmed in few months and ton of amazon frog bit along with water sprite. i want a lot of "green" with low maintenance so the water sprite doesn't sound like a bad idea since those guys grow in anything.
if you have suggestions for plants, let me know!
as for fish, i am leaning towards espei rasboro, which i believe are the same things are harlequins. she said she wants something pretty and bright... -_-
i'm thinking in a small tank a school of 4-6 should be enough. no snails. no shrimps.
