limeslide's tanks! :) (DUW) Lots of Pictures!


I should start one of these

I'm quite new to planted tank keeping despite lurking around these forums for quite a bit, so why not keep a mini blog now? I'm bad at these, so I'll put it in my bookmarks to try to keep it going on.

It will mostly revolve around a few tanks either in the works or just there, sitting, collecting mulm. :P

Thanks for viewing!

Any ideas on rescaping, or? I kind of want to move all that java moss and attach it to some driftwood, maybe remove a bit of sand, and add more leaves, but I am worried that it will create a huge mess, or that the java moss will just die.

I'm kind of at loss with the gravel one, should I empty it?

I have been wanting to grow an UG bed in a fresh tank. :P

it might help if you put water in the second one :P haha!

i likethe first one, but its lacking a real scape. it looks thrown in there, if thats what your looking for then thats cool. its beautiful in itself.

Thanks for the comment!

I've taken down the second tank to make room for the Christmas tree, and all the inhabitants went happily to a pond outdoors, with a heater of course!

The first tank has gotten a few additions, with pennywort being one of them.

Lady Philomena




Tub 45g




I'm thinking of ditching the 10g and moving her to a 29g

Thanks for the comment!

The plant is Brazilian Pennywort, a very pretty plant and very easy to care for! I highly recommend it.

Thank you! I love your betta! Haha, the little pot belly!

I'm too lazy to sift through the stuff that I post on the other forums so you get a bunch of other stuff too. :P

I will definitely have to look into the brazilian pennywort. I love the way it's creeps. Your outside aquarium looks so happy! When it warms back up here I would love to try taking some of my plants outside for some true sun.

Thanks! I may have some extra pennywort by the time it's Spring, I may be able to send you some just for the cost of shipping.
The tub is essentially where I throw all my extra plants, I like them and they seem to like the sun so it works out. :P
