I'll admit right off the bat that I haven't read the book. This is just a fun experiment based off of some how-to guides and personal experiences I've read online.
Tank: Aqueon 5.5g tank, top rim removed
Lighting: Sunlight supplemented with 13w compact fluorescent
Filtration: None, may add a small internal one later
Substrate: MGOPM capped with Flourite Black
Heater: None yet, will add Tetra 50w preset
hygrophila corymbosa var compact
anubias barteri var nana
rotala sp 'Gai Lai'/'Singapore' mixed (recieved this in a RAOK so I listed it exactly as the seller did)
cryptocoryne crispulata var balansae
dwarf water lettuce (had trouble finding the scientific name)
TBD, but probably a betta
Disclaimer: I'm pretty new to the hobby of planted tanks, and tanks in general, so please forgive any errors in naming, care, water chemistry, etc.
