Biocube 14 Southeast Asia backwaters

Just a couple tank specs for anyone who is interested:

Biocube 14 aquarium
2x24watt 10k PC bulbs
Stock return and bioballs
Aqueon 50watt heater
Hagen DIY CO2 system w/bubble ladder
Fluorite red substrate









I just like this plant


Originally this was a saltwater tank however due to the poor economy and the closing of several lfs here in Flagstaff I made the switch the Freshwater. Had a betta however he died a couple days ago. If anyone saw my other thread you probably can guess why

Your tank is so natural. I love it. As for the betta, he was signing the release forms with the Swim Reaper lol. However if he would have lived he would have had the greatest little home ever (always think positive, even if a fish is a few scales short)

Isn't the Arrowhead a non-aquatic plant?

The arrowheaded plant is actually a lotus, I believe it is Nymphaea pubescens. It grows from a bulb and you can get them in bulb packs.

Actually, Petsmart Et Al sell a little pinkish plant labelled "Arrowhead" that is a non-aquatic, it's a philodendron.

So you're both right.

This is the Nymphaea genus. The plan is to let a couple of them grow to the surface and try to keep the rest trimmed.
