Junglefowl's 29G rescaping




After running this tank for 8 months, I feel like I have to rescape it again. The reason is I don't like the playsand I use for the stream in the middle. And...well...look at the pic...there is no more space for my fish to dig in. So here I go: start again.

The main point in this tank is the driftwood bonsai tree I got as a gift from my brother Riversun. I have used xmas moss for it the whole time, but this time I will use weeping moss. Here is the pic of the tree with xmas moss:



I took the driftwood off the tank



Sold the moss to a member on here



I got some fellows asked me to sell the tree but I can't...sorry it's a gift...but bext time when I come back to Vietnam, I will try to bring some more back here...

Anyway, I took all the plants and fish to another tank, removed water and the playsand...then used 15lb of Floramax on to the old substrate. And here we go



Now take sometimes to tie the weeping moss I have on the tree



And try some rocks



I know...I know...it is really dirty, I spent another hour to remove the old ammonia and NO3 and clean up the glass, fill in the water



That is for today!!! Will be updated

Thanks folks!!!

I'm curious to see the result! I get frustrated with my 29g a lot; it's just a weirdly-shaped tank. It's taller than I want a tank to be!

Update day 2:

Do a 60% WC. Time to put the plants back in the tank. Half of the plants was sold to someone so it didn't take much time for me to plant it.





Put some red ramshorn snails in to see how they doing.

It is really tall. I was thinking to change to 20L tank because of it. But I figure out 20L tank would be short for the driftwood. And when I upgrade the substrate to another level: thicker, now I am really satisfy with it.

Updated: put some more rocks in for the scape and plant glossos and 4 leaves clovers in the front. Gloss didn't do well from the previous, hopefully they will do good this time. Don't have enough time to do dry start though

It was in a aquarium shop in Saigon. My brother took me there, I don't really remember exactly what street.
