Shaggy2061ís Desktop Experience (5.5 gallon Tank)

The story of Shaggy2061’s Desktop Experience (5.5 gallon Tank)

My Betta Fred thought carpet surfing would be a good idea! It wasn’t!

So, With Fred out of the picture Joe The dwarf emerald Cory needed a new roomie. The Help (shrimp & Snails) are no fun to hang with. All they do is clean all-day long. How boring is that? And honestly, he needed a change just having black floors to eat off of, and white rock to look at was boring.

So, I decided to rent the Space to some nice guppies. And remodel for him with some nice plants.

Java Moss (Taxiphyllum barbieri)
Narrow Leaf Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus var. Narrow)
Windelov Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus var. windelov)
Anubias Nana (Anubias barteri var. nana)
Banana Plant (Nymphoides aquatica)
Flame Moss (?Taxiphyllum sp???)

The basics stayed the same.

Top Fin 5.5 No lid
Nicrew LED Light 11” – 19”
Aquaclear 20
AZOO AZ60067 50-watt Titanium Heater
Have several pieces of quartz form my yard in there I boiled and vinegar tested.
5 Lbs. Black Sand National Geo brand
Going to knock a wall down soon so I can add a 2 Little Fishies 150 reactor (Might Be overkill)

Cleaned up the neighborhood by getting rid of that shifty leaching piece of junk Mopani wood. And invited a piece in from Malaysia.

So now Joe Has a few friends and some cleaners
5 Malaysian Trumpet Snails
3 Endlers cobra Guppies
5 Ghost Shrimp
2 Mystery Snails
1 Zebra Nerite Snail
1 Dwarf Emerald Cory Cat

For Meals I serve
Omega One Super color
Omega one Freeze dried blood worms
Plants are happy with the light and a tiny little Flourish Excel

Well 8 months have passed and many things have transpired . For one this little tank got taken over by the Java moss and everything else suffered do to that fact. BUt i cleaned it up about 3 weeks ago and it is sorta looking good now.
