7.5 Gallon Low-Tech Betta Oasis
I've had a nano reef tank for that last 4 years, but FW was my first love, in elementary school. The reef tank got to be too much, so I decided to come back to FW and try something I hadn't done before-planted! Along with my favorite FW staple, bettas.
Jace is a Walmart rescue, and is coming out of his shell more every day. I had him in a bowl for about a week and a half (impulse buy before the tank was ready...) and seeing how thrilled he was with that much space, and now the 12" cube is just adorable and so exciting. Anybody want to guess where his name came from?
The tank is partially set up, I'm letting Jace get used to the tank, substrate, plants + light before I add the heater and the filter is in the mail, after the one I was going to reuse unexpectedly went kaput(for reef people, the motor was stuffed full of bristle worms!). More plants are arriving tomorrow.
Clip Desk Light + 60 Watt Daylight CFL
Azoo Palm Filter 60
Heater, I don't remember the brand.
20 pounds of eco-complete
3-4 pounds of Seiryu Stone
Cryptocoryne wendtii 'red'
Male Betta; 'Jace'
Bump: Sorry, meant to post this in Tank Journals. Here's that thread
