So about 4 months ago i take my daughter to a Fair and of all things she wins a Feeder goldfish..... So i had to take it home !!
It was in a little bowl for about a month b4 it got too big.
So i went to Petland and bought a 10g starter tank... For a while it was just the loan goldfish. My daughter then became bored with the tank as all 3 year olds do with anything ..
So i adopted it, and this is my try at turning it into a planted tank...
The idea is to have some rockwork in the scape and maybe a slim piece or 2 of driftwoord with moss growing.. I will also like to keep some livebearing fish and some green cover for the babies to hide out.
So this is what i have soo far.... every week i buy a plant or 2 and add to the tank with no real intent on scaping just yet.
, not sure what kind, it was labled as Brazilian (3)
*and i think this plant is a Coffee Anubias
(1) maybe a Petite Nana
Plants i would like to get..
Blyxa japonica ,Barclaya longifolia ,Dwarf Hairgrass ,maybe the very front of the tank in Glosso or HC, some Taxiphyllum barbieri for the driftwood and any other suggestion you guys can give..
*Fancy Guppies (3)
*Albino Cory (1)
Well on with the pix... Next week i will be swapping out the gravel for Black Flourite, and retro fit some better lighting.
Banana Plant.. when i got it 2 weeks ago there were only about 3 leaves.. It then sprouted a stalk that grew up to water level.
This was the result of that stalk
Then it got even more weird.. This is one of the leaves on my Java Fern.. I assume this is how they reproduce.. Looks like a root system with a stalk at the top growing directly on the underside of the leaf.
Another plant , same deal
And today i noticed while takign these pix that another stalk is coming up from the gravel at the root of the Fern on the 2nd plant.
And this is that mystery plant.. There is a stalk of somthing next to it also. I have no idea what that is either (it was there b4 i got the "mystery" plant.. I just planted it next to the "mystery" stalk to give it some cover from the rooting Cory. ID from you guys would be great. Thanks in advance.
