1 Gallon Low Tech Collectoritis Tank


I just trimmed down my 1 gallon betta tank. The problem I've been having with the HM is that accidentally pulling up one node will uproot an entire system of HM :/ so the "carpet" looks like it's been turned upside down and inside out... I'm hoping it will settle down again soon T_T





Plants tend to stunt in here... which suits my purposes fairly well...

The nice side of the carpet

The uprooted side D:


Master of the tank


Azolla with curly roots that gets tangled in EVERYTHING


Photos of it starting off...





Oh and the collectoritis list:

rotala najenshan
rotala mini
+3 other rotalas
mayaca fluviatilis
star grass
staurogen repens
pogostemon erectus
HM
elatine triandra
crypt...sp(?)
peacock moss
limno mini
giant baby tears
bolbitis
azolla
ludwigia...(stray)
riccia (stray)
susswassertang(stray)
+lots of random stray moss

Wonderful tank! Lucky fish.. I'd live in it

What filter are you running? Also, what lighting do you have to sustain all of that?

I'm running an azoo mignon 60/redsea nano/ deep blue nano (they're almost all identical) and a 23a 6500k cfl.
here's a pic of the light, it's shared between two tanks
