discusplantedtanklover Gorguoes,driftwood you had there.

StraightAddicted That is an amazing set up you have going on, just try to be patient because it will be worth it in the long run. Moss or anubias would be great choice either way. As SpecGrrl pointed out, the potential danger of damage is priority, and should be addressed before putting betta in. By looking at your setup, this isn't your first rodeo, so keep up the hard work! Keep us posted

kruzerman Relax. Not quite sure what to do there. I have some Anubias that would work but are huge. Don't really want to stuff it full of moss and I am definitely not going to silicone it. I will probably end up with some anubias petite there but the tank is far from being ready for inhabitants. Whatever I do it will be ready.

SpecGrrl Um, seriously, please please please fill that crack with moss/silicone.

Several folks have lost bettas bc they tried to go through the holes in the bottom of ceromic pots, got stuck and drowned bc they couldn't get to the top.

One of my bettas went into a half inch airline tube and couldn't back out. Luckily 8 was able to save him.

They think if they can get their nose inside, it's safe.

Please. Prevention.

I was hoping that wasn't case but I will wait... impatiently. I need plants that grow faster and stop right when I want them too.

Amandas tank I'm lovin the moss wall idea! I may have to do that in my tank! The cycling is something I haven't had to go through. When I got my original tank it was already over a year old. When I upgraded, by some miracle the tank never back stepped into a min-cycle.

I have read others cycling "nightmares". From their experiences all I can say is try to be patient and let it roll out. Once it's over, you will be on your way and the cycle will be nothing more than a memory

Your tank looks great!

kruzerman Sigh. The cycle isn't done yet.
11-03-2012 10:47 PM
kruzerman I was able to clean up the wood a bit and remove some of the nastier bits and sand down some pointy parts. I am still a little nervous of tearing fins but I got it as best I could. I also added plants. Lots of java fern, a little java moss, crypt wendtii's, a val, some bacopa, some ludwigia, a mystery stem, and a lily. I also threw in a weeping moss wall to the back. I am not sure that is going to stay once the fish go in. I seem to have lost the power cord to my led hood that came with the tank so i threw on 2 5.5 inch clamp lights from the Depot with 13w cfl's in them. There goes my ultra low light tank now. If I keep these on here it might be too much light for the growth rate I am looking for. Should be good enough for the cycle. I added some Seachem Stability to give the cycle a jump start.









Any idea what this is?

Amandas tank WOW! That tank is going to ROCK! Lucky Betta! Bettas love to explore and swim through holes and under over hangs and this driftwood has it all!!!! I wish I could find a piece as awesome as this! Our shopes don't even carry driftwood...well the flat mopian kind. The BD looks excellent.

BD has to be my new favorite substrate, especially with the price. Here is the current scape.
