So I've been slowly adding to this tank, and trying to keep everything in balance, since I upgraded the light and never bothered with any CO2 of any kind. So far it's doing pretty well. There has been more algae growth, but I can keep it at bay with regular acrylic scrapings. Also, the filter was removed so I could quickly cycle my new 2.5 gallon nano tank, and in its place was put the Whisper filter that came with the 2.5 gallon. Please ignore this ugly honking filter, as it is temporary. I was going to just buy another red sea filter, but I think I've decided instead to go with a Zoomed 501. I just have to wait til next paycheck.
At any rate, ON WITH THE PICS!!!!
Here's one of the lonely oto who survived. I originally had 3, but 2 didn't make it. I plan on getting him some buddies soon:
And lastly, this is my favorite angle to view the tank from:
I am still wondering what I should do for the groundcover, and would appreciate any more suggestions. I'm still considering the moss idea as mentioned above, but lately I've been thinking about maybe trying to use that small crypt, I think it's called Parva? I know it stays small and makes a good groundcover, but I don't know how available it is.
As always, thanks for looking, and if you have any criticisms or compliments, please post away!!
