I have a new "giant" betta on the way (Crowley):
To house my mini-monster, I got a 20G-Long at the PetCo $1/G sale yesterday. Then I went to Albany Aquariums and spent $$$ for ADA Amazonia, lights (Coralife Aqualight T5 Dual Lamp Fixture), heater, and some Blyxa japonica
. Not sure what else I want to put in yet . . . but am open to suggestions.
Here's the tank on my sideboard with the ADA in it and a bowl/plate so I could fill it:
Here it is filled and full of sediment:
And here it is this morning with the first plants in, the light on, and my janky old HOB filter running (waiting for the Ehiem Classic to arrive).
