This is great stuff everyone! What Tom did there is exactly what I want to do. Maybe a little bit bigger but that's the essential idea. Thank you!

Even since I have started keeping fish, I have been interested in the idea of creating a self sustained ecosystem inside of my aquarium.

I know I can't get by without water changes (best I can do...

Like Micheljq said, java ferns do not require C02. They are very slow growers. On the other hand, dwarf hairgrass has been a complete pain in my rear. It's very hard to grow. It requires high light...

Good points. Very good points. Yea, if you're willing to do that and the rewards outweigh the risks, then I can't say anything against that. Just giving my two cents on what I'd do.

That is very true, each fish has their own personality. It's just the normal behavior of a Betta, being a carnivore, is to go after those very kinds of food. I would avoid housing them together to...

When you trim the leaves of a plant, you must trim all the way down to the base. What you are seeing is the stem rotting. I would cut that all the way down to the rhizome. This will stimulate the...

That may not be the best idea because Bettas will eat the shrimp or go after them. If they don't get eaten, they'll be very stressed. I would not recommend that.

For a tank that doesn't require deep light penetration, I'd go LED because of the light output VS energy usage. You can get a 30" LED bar on ebay for around $30-40. I use 2 CFLs and 1 FS LED Bar on a...

I can see you only plan on having 4 Denison Barbs. As schooling fish, I'd recommend a minimum of 6. As far as plants and layout goes, it all looks great to me. Want to see what it looks like later.
