Just wanted to share my tank and get some advice!
The tank currently houses Ren, a young betta who was imported from Thailand
Along with this, 2 nerite snails, 6 pygmy cories(added today) (who might be moved to the 80 gallon), 4 kuhli loaches(i thought there was 3 but there was four lol) (who might also join a school of 12 in the 80 gallon in a few months), and about 7-8 Amano shrimp.
The tank substrate is a combination of Fluval Flourite Black sand and regular black sand. I had the tank set up with white sand but realized I hated the look and switch to black
I actually did the switch and rescaped today, so the tank looks a bit murky still.
In order to make the tank Betta safe, I've made holes into the tube of the water output that leads out from the pump. It's greatly decreased the flow to make the tank better safe, and since the heater is in the chamber with the water that's being pushed out by the holes I made, I have adequate heating, which gives me lots of peace of mind
I've also added in a small air pump and air stone. Mostly for aesthetic purposes. Ren like's to chase the stray bubbles!
For flora, I have 2 marimo moss balls, about 7 anubias plants (2 on real driftwood, and the rest on fake driftwood/spiderwood). I planted one of the anubias in the sand and learned a few hours ago that was a mistake, so I'll adhere it to the driftwood tomorrow evening. I also just add a small bunch amazon sword which I stuck in the sand/flourite. I'm using the included lighting from my Flex.
I recently learned that 16 hours of light is what caused yellowing in my anubias.
Do I need to start supplementing the tank with anything? Theres about 3 individual amazon swords in the bunch I planted together. I read that I need to add supplement tabs near the plant site to supplement them or something like that? Please advise.
Any feedback or input would be GREATLY appreciated
