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.
