Alasse's planted native tank


Tank: 6x2x2
Lighting: Temporary T8 lighting in place
Filtration: Canister (overhead sump as well once I get the hose to hook it up)
Heater: No

The tank sits outside in my undercover BBQ area and is fairly new, the rainbows are slowly colouring up with the live food.

Rainbow shiners I hope?

Lovely tank, I like how you made the hardscape work with the proportions of you tank; masterful.

Photo shows where the 6ft sits, sort of lol



The tinted plastic blinds that you can see either side of the doorway roll up for when the weather is hot. (The 2 blinds & doorway are tinted, the other side the blinds are clear plastic)

Cool patio! I love sitting outside and enjoying the weather (when you can). Have you been propagating the vals? I haven't had much luck with mine personally.
