~~2 Month Update~~
The lil guy is doing great, he's very active and much more happier then being left at the petsmart store in a cup. He loves to go in and out of the driftwood and caves and leaf surfs on every plant possible.
I've named him Eyrie (Lord of the Vale) as he is a Veil tale... get it?
Here is where I always find him napping... under this particular leaf of the Anubias.
The plants are exploding in growth since I added on the Finnex Planted+ 16" and a versa top. My cleaning/pwc schedule has also eased, the 5 gallon tank only needs 25% every 2 weeks with a top up in between.
The tank specs are as follows:
5 Gallon Top Fin Aquarium with Black Silicon
Versa Top Glass Lid
Finnex Planted +
Aquaclear 20 with water bottle baffle and fluval prefilter
White Pool Filter Sand and Estes Pebbles
Betta Leaf Hammock
Male Veil Tale Betta
3 Amano Shrimp
The Amanos love to graze on the algae that builds up on this cichlid stone.
The Otos love hanging out on the Malaysian Driftwood.
This frogbit covers up to much of the light, its been removed by the handful every month. The Amanos surfs on it upside down.
I'd like to add some more shrimp to this tank (not Cherries , I have those in my other 3). I'm very confident in my overstocking as all my other tanks are overstocked, and as some of you know I have a lengthy water change and fertilizer schedule.
I'm thinking perhaps some Blue Neos or perhaps another color to offset Eyrie's blue color.
