4 gallon


Hi,

Here is a pic of my 4 gallon Finnex tank that I just rescaped. The driftwood is from another tank that already had Java and Pelia moss growing on it and I thought it might look good as a center piece in this tank. I planted Marsilea dwarf as the foreground. I would like to keep this tank simple. I'm not running co2 on this tank. I have the lights on for 8hrs and mist 3 times a day with excell and flourish added to my water. I would appreciate any comments or thoughts. Thanks!

I really like that wood you have going on in there. What fish you thinking about for this?

Thanks! Not sure yet to add fish or maybe just shrimp. I think it would be a great playground for shrimp.

Originally there were two dalmatian mollies in there and I convinced my daughter to take them out temporarily to make it a planted tank. So, they may be going back in once I fill it. I may put rcs shrimp in there. Still undecided on the shrimp. I'm glad your digging it!

Thanks!
