Waterworld(AKA My Tank)
For those who care not for a brief but detailed synopsis of my tank, skip to the third paragraph.
My tank does not have a name. But it can be described. It has around 5-9 plants which consist of Java Moss, Java Fern, Japanese Pennyworths, and etc. I only have a few animals if you will consisting of things like some snails that were hiding in the plants that I had gotten and another animal whose name I unsure of. My Ammonia levels range well around 10 but do to an incident with putting way too much food into my tank it could have risen. It was so serious that I used up almost more than a half of the water in the tank only to put it back in later. I had used black diamond blasting sand as my substrate instead of using my other decision Safe T Sorb. I am using T-8 shop lights with a “Aqueon Quietflow 10” filter. To sum it up, the gear that I use consists of:
- T-8 Shop light
- Aqueon Filter
- Water Heater( AKA Water temp regulator if you want to get technical)
As I progress further with my tank, I would like to change a few things as well. These changes would mostly revolve around adding fish or adding more plants to my tank since it could definitely use more plants compared to some of the other tanks in my class. Another thing that I’d like to change is to add some more sand (blasting sand) to my tank since much of it has seemingly disappeared from the tank from water changes and etc. I’d want to create a U-shaped valley with it if I could however that would require much blasting sand, I would have to replant the plants, and I wouldn’t be able to make it because of the giant piece of wood poking out from the tank.
As we all know, water owns super hard. It is in what we drink, and what we do most of our stuff with. Its in our showers and our bottles. And is in snow and ice which causes snow days and most importantly, No School! But what if this legendary substance was confined to a glass? It would totally stink right? Wrong. This is pretty cool since you manage your own environment just by:
Step 1: Get a tank
Step 2: Get a Substrate
Step 3: Get a filter
Step 5: Get a heater
After that all you need to do is get plants and animals to jazz up your tank and you'll be on your way. Oh yeah, and make sure to check things like ammonia levels while having your tank.
