I picked up 2 of these for $50 on Kijiji last week. My first experience with Fluorite and I didn't rinse it so the water is still cloudy but it'll come with time. I haven't done anything with the second one yet but the plan is also to put Fluorite in it and convert to a shrimp tank with maybe 6ish RCS.

Before:



After:



Tank came with the Betta, a neon, and dwarf african frog. It's overstocked but the guy I got them from said he's had them 6 months.... the second one has 3 neons and a DAF. No where else to put the excess fish right now either but I suppose if they've been in there this long they can wait until I figure something out. I don't want them but I don't want to euthanize them but the LFS basically won't take them either. Not sure what I can do!

Filter was on it's highest setting too. I've turned it down which I know is still too high for the fish but at least it'll be a bit of a break!

Primo, a simple fix to lower the filter output is to attach a sponge to the outflow of the pump. This slows down the current very effectively. Another option is to cut slits in the tubing that carries the water back to the display side. Have fun and keep up on the water changes, I've got a betta in my spec and he loves it. Water changes are the main focus on small tanks. Keep those up and your fish will do well.

Hey JakeJekel37, great looking tank. What is the plant in the balls? Is it a java moss?

Here's the betta that I added once it cycled.


That was about six weeks ago. The plant growth has been phenomenal and I've added plants. I'll take a new picture when I'm back in the office on Monday.

Thanks. It's more of a collection of plants than a real scape but I like it.

Noooooo, don't let stuff grow on your beautiful hardscape, that wood looks way to good to be covered up.

Need a plant suggestion for my Spec. Stock light no co2 only use root tabs. I really dont like java fern very much. It always looks like it is dying to me. I already have some anubias. I was thinking of growing a moss wall but what else could grow with basically no upkeep?
