Substrate Reptile sand from Petco
Parameters Right now going through mini-cycle due to recently adding sponge filter.

Plants Hornwort, Java Fern, petite nana, several small moss ball pieces, unknown aponogeton species (baby plant).

Comments Please pardon blurry photos, the camera is low grade. I am using cut plastic canvas from a craft store as the cover for now. It works great and cost under $2.

Updated on December 3rd, 2010. I added a whisper 3i filter because the snails were stirring up the sand and causing clouding that a sponge filter couldn't handle. I am hoping to add an external filter (hidden away underneath) once I have a bit more money. There are now 2 baby guppies and quite a few cherry shrimp in there.

Lovely natural looking tank. The Aponogeton looks like Aponogeton Natans judging by size and stem numbers
