5 gallons of what not


I've had this little tank going for a while now but I can't screw with it much as it belongs to my wife.

Equip:
Deep blue 5.5 gallon
16" Finnex Stingray
Under gravel mini filter
Sponge filter
Fluval 50watt heater

Flora:
Anubias nana
A. Petite
Java moss
Flame moss
Tiny bit of xmas moss

Fauna:
Female betta named Finnley
3 nerites

Bump: Not sure what I wanna see in this lil thing.
Please excuse the dirty tank. Typical water change photo. I have roughly 30 anubias to play with....
The zebra stone is only there to hold the log down. I will have to mount it on slate. Its been under water for months but still floats...
Any thoughts?

I'm glad your wife's betta girl has a filter and heater and plenty of swim room! If you're having trouble wit the wood remove it from the tank and boil it in a large pot for 1-2 hours. It's too long to fully submerge in pot do 1 hour, empty pot and refill, rotate wood and boil another hour. Let it cool completely before putting back into the tank.

If it still floats you probably have a softwood of some sort which is bad as they break down faster than hardwood. If it's cedar it will never loose boyancy (know from experience).

Question for anyone out there... I am fighting bga on the little tree. The moss attracts the stuff. I've tried not to have much current in here because of the betta so any help would be appreciated.
I constantly treat with peroxide. It just comes back in a few days. Weekly 25% plus WCs are always done.
I just added about 15 petites and 4or5 barteri in so im hoping they will help with any excess nitrates.
