26g rimless bow cold water riparium Pics


I wanted to do something somewhat simple compared to my other tank I have collected a lot of stuff I don't need so I decided to figure out a new home for my axolotle this should be perfect for him




26g bow and stand were laying around
T5ho 2x24 glow fixture I already had
I have a magnum hob canister filter I got for free that I will be putting tubes on and mounting under the tank
I still have to finish reselling it after de rimming it
I'm going to try and use sponge holders as planters and I'm still looking for some styrafom as well

This is what I started with



And the future resident




Let me know if you have any suggestion I'm still not sure about plants

I had to drive out of town(about 100 miles) to a reptile expo to pick him up. I can get the brown/green and the orange ones locally but the pink one at the time was hard to find I paid 60 for him

I'm having a little issue with green algae I have to use a sponge filter( I think). Axolotles can't have much flow at all in the tank they get stressed very easily. I'm sure this algae is due to lack of flow is there any other way I can get rid of it. It's only growing on the floating riccia mat
