So I scraped the dirt tank for now because the dirt was still filled with little pieces of wood which would float up every now and then(After picking the big pieces out for an hour). This is a beginner set up so excuse the stupid pictures and descriptions. I will be taking pictures frequently to record low light plant growth, don't laugh
I wanted something more simple so I chose moss.
Tank: 10 gallon
Light: Hampton Bay desk lamp
Filter: aquatic edge bioclear filter (should arrive on the 2nd)
CO2: DIY (when everything is set up)
Substrate: Black Tahitian moon sand
Plants: Christmas Moss, Marimo balls
Fish/inverts: Currently tons of rasboras which will be moved to a 20L (fire reds in ~2 weeks)
Oh and the tank is positioned this way because I currently don't have a stand and my mom wants it somewhat hidden..
Going to look for some driftwood tomorrow!
What I used to tie stuff down. Seems like everyone asks this question
Experimentation with plastic mesh. It floats?
The tank right now.
