UNS 7 Gallon, My First Planted Puffer Tank

I’ve been a lurker for a while now but never made an introductory post, so here it is!

Ultum Nature Systems ~7G ultra clear tank with Dragon Stone aquascape, housing now two dwarf pea puffers, some ottos and a few neon tetras. Can’t remember what the tall plants are but the carpet is Monte Carlo and the low bushy plants are repens and anubias nana petite. No CO2 here, just excel dosed daily. No heater, pressurized CO2, or filter media. As simple and beautiful as can be. Included are some pictures of it’s beginning stages, originally planted with $1 mystery seeds from Wish.com. They worked amazing but due to my neglect eventually grew too tall and I ended up ripping them out. Its come a long ways to say the least and becomes better and better as it matures.

Thanks for taking a look.

Did the pictures come out blurry or is it just my phone?

I really like the arrangement of those stones. Nice work! However, I feel the tall stems aren't needed and actually takes away from the total effect.

That’s truly an amazing “low tech tank” May I ask what type of light that is? But that is a beautiful set up with no co2, I would recommend that you put filter media in the tank, it doesn’t even have to be filter floss just some lava rock or something porous to house beneficial bacteria. Your fish will like you for it.

When you use the uploader of the planted tank, the image gets compressed a lot. There is nothing wrong with your phone. If you want to show something off with 1 to 1 detail, use a third party image service.
