lotuslullaby Beautiful! I think the abundance of plants will make your Betta very happy. Not an expert, but all the bettas I have had love playing in plants or plant roots. =)

ange062 Any progress on recovery from fin rot?
02-23-2013 08:51 PM
d2mini Yeah, i think there is definitely going to be shrimp in this one. Trying to figure out the aquascaping first.


Meanwhile.... realized Mr Betta has fin rot. All those gorgeous fins are all shreddy.
Not sure how/why. They say its due to dirty water but I had been doing lots of water changes and using ro/di water. All parameters check out. Even got my nitrates down to zero.
So he's been transferred to a gallon bowl and getting a salt bath for the next 7-10 days.

Green_Flash Nice work, it is coming along nicely, DHG can be a little tricky for some to grow.
I hear DHG "Belem" is easier.

Can't wait to see what you do with the 12g long, shrimp perhaps?

a little 12g long.



Thanks! I needed an ID on that.


BTW, just tested Nitrates and it's at ZERO! My reef tank has been up for 6 months and I still can't get it below 4.

Both your cube and your current setup are some of my all time favorites. With your awesome eye for design and attention to detail, you'll do amazing in freshwater planted if you enjoy it.

Subscribed and along for the ride.

d2mini Took a few new pics. The tank is 3 weeks old tomorrow.

The tank today...



The tank 10 days ago



Not much growth yet except for my glosso.
The dwarf hair grass is still looking pretty shabby.
The dwarf baby tears seems to be hanging on still. Looks like I might even have a little extra length on those, but no spreading yet.
Continuing to does brighty k, green brighty, and excel.

Here's a few more pics...

wastedtime Great job on the tank, I've seen your reef builds on RC and they are spectacular. The betta looks great.
02-15-2013 03:51 PM
d2mini Thanks!

For the close-ups I always grab my Nikon D800.
For the FTS, i just grab whatever is nearby.
