10gal Low Tech Fun


updated since adding diy co2, so not so low tech anymore?




pinkman (my betta) had no problem with the move, but i lost a
few embers and neons. transferring to bucket then to new tank
was a bit much. trying to look at the bright side, i guess its a bit of a
clean slate.

in the beginning when i first planted, i had some melting, and then they grew back.
i have a few melting right now, i think its due to the fact that i pulled them from the
tank with the cracked glass and also clipped the roots when i re-planted. since thats
what happened the first time around.

Probably, I thought that was a high tech only plant I may try my hand at it for my 10 gallon setup. You think dirt will be good enough for it as far as nutrients?
