ADA 20C Cube No Tech “Tintinnabulation” /Mini-Mountain

Hello! Been a long time since I’ve been on here. Took a break from the hobby for a little bit because the high tech tanks I had been keeping were proving too much to keep up with lol

So my new tank has no tech whatsoever. It’s simply a small glass cube with a desk light. It will be a home for my betta I named “Lox” (he was originally named “Tomato”). Some snails and shrimps will be added down the line.

It’s currently in the DSM with dwarf hairgrass seed, utilizing filtered sun for the light source. Hope to have it filled in a week or so. Thought is to have a fully dense carpet before filling.

If you have questions about my process feel free to ask! Just don’t judge it.

I’ll let pics do the talking.
