Fishy's Tank

Fishy's new Fluval Spec 3.

- Tank started March 26, 2017.

- In the filter compartments I have the fluval biomax and seachem perigen.

- 1 betta fish (i feed him 2 pellets, twice per day, 4 in total per day. He eats every piece)

- 3 types of plants (anubias of some variety, Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini', Staurogyne repens)





I poked holes in the pump tube to reduce the flow. He's not getting pushed around the tank anymore

Added a heater and thermometer. I also changed the gravel to smaller gravel and replaced the fake plant with a new one.

You can see the algae here. It's better than it was. The plants are growing, especially the pink ones.

Added U.P Aqua Sand. Tank still isn't cycled so I figured, why not? Perhaps this hobby will teach me patience.

Because I bought him before I knew anything about fish/tanks Actually this is tank #2 because the pet store sold me a smaller bowl thing and I read he didn't have enough space. I'm not sure if it will ever cycle because I keep messing with it. I test and change the water every day to keep him safe though.
