Hi there everyone, I just registered and thought that I'd share my planted aquarium with everyone. It is a Hagen Fluval Flora tank for plants, and I pretty much use all the stock things that come with it except the filter.
The filter I use here is a Fluval U1 underwater filter, much like the one it comes with except this one is for 15 gallons. I also added more of the substrate because I felt what they give you is much to little to allow the plants to grow properly. So far I've had it running for 2 Months and its looking great, take a look!
This is Crimson, a double tailed halfmoon betta I rescued. His bowl was disgusting and his fins were all torn up, but now he is living the life and he is the king of this jungle tank
. He deserves nothing less...BETTAS SHOULD NOT BE KEPT IN BOWLS OR VASES WITHOUT A HEATER, THIS IS HOW BETTAS SHOULD BE KEPT WITH A LOT OF ROOM TO EXPLORE AND A HEATER TO KEEP THEM WARM, THEY ARE NOT COLD WATER FISH. /endrant
Not in the least bit camera shy.
One of my six galaxy danios.
My cardinal Tetras.
One of my Scarlet Badis', very camera shy.
One of my two cherry shrimp just chillin' and scurrying across for some food.
Mr.Algae eater, probably the most photogenic lil guy in there rivaling Crimson.
PLANTS: I don't know the names of all the plants but here they are.
One of my favorites, got these little lads when they were just 3 leafs old (:
Pretty much the center piece.
This guy was tiny when I got him too, called a banana something because the roots literally look like a bunch of bananas. The vine looking plants in the back are called Anarchis btw, great plants if you want to float them and use them for fry hiding areas. Shrimp love to chill in em too, eating away the trash on them.
I WANT to say Anubias, but I'm not entirely sure. Beautiful plant nonetheless.
Anyway, that's my little underwater jungle, hope you guys enjoy (:.
