Okay go re-read the title again if you didn't read it in a siren voice (weeoo weeoo weeoo)
I have... I BUTT ugly tank right now. UUUGGLLYY. It got whacked with the ugly stick. It's ugly.
When I first started it, I really liked it
Then.... I found out my lights couldn't support the plants I wanted
Almost all of them died.
Bought some more. They died
So now I have come to where I am at now. A couple stems, frogbit galore, a few vals, and something else. It's really cool, it has holes in the leafs
I finally decided to agree with what I knew all a long, but didn't want to listen to. I, Sydney, need to use ONLY low light plants. No more playing with medium light plants. Sigh.
So, I really need to make this tank nice like it once was. Here come awesome TPT members to the rescue! In the next few days, I'll be buying some (hopefully lots
) of low light plants. And totally re-do the tank. Just a warning, the tank MAY be hardscape-less for a while
I know, I know, calm down. I just have a few things to work with, and heck, I don't even know what I want the tank to look like!
My next step will be upgrading the lights. I will be going with 46-ish watts of CFL's. But that's not low light, you say? O.M.G. After I turn the tank black water it will be
That will be the last step. By then, I will have the stock down to 2 Rams, 8 Hatchet Fish, 8 Neon Tetras, 8 Pristella Tetras, and 3 ottos. All in a 5.5 gallon. Just kidding!
It's 25 gallons.
Anyways, that's all for tonight, folks. Hopefully I can get some pics up of the butt ugly tank tomorrow.
