2.5g Moss Machine
Miss my 15g goldfish tank from years ago, so now I'm setting up a betta small betta tank.. with java moss! Advice would be appreciated.
2.5 g, red sea nano filter (going to turn the flow all the way down when betta arrives)
heater, not a lot of watts don't remember specifics
sweet plastic dinosaur skull
a bunch of snails that showed up probably with plants (pond snails if my googling is accurate)
It's in a west facing room near windows so it gets some decent afternoon sunlight, but not overly sunny. I'd love the java moss to fill out the tank, should I break out with a light/co2 rig/fertilizer or is java moss such an easy plant that I shouldn't worry? I already have a bit of algae growing on the skull and a hint of it on the walls of the tank, does this mean I need to up the co2 levels? I've been contemplating putting together a yeast dealie to tie into my filter.
Being patient so the tank can cycle nicely and not mess with the betta. The betta should act as snail control, right? There are a ton. I figure the bigger ones won't get eaten and the smaller ones will be delicious snacks.
Should I think about aeration? Would aeration bring in co2? The filter makes an alright amount of surface agitation right now, but it's going full blast cause there's no betta in there.
