New 6.6 bookshelf!

Got this picked up from Waterfaller1 today. Here it is at startup! More to come.


And a closeup of Karma! And a RCS in the background to see how she tolerates them lol. She took one out right away but didnt eat it.

I had a tank very like this and I think it'd be a great Betta haven! She's a looker--can I get my boy Oliver a date with her?

sox

Thanks, i have to decide on substrate and plant setup, will probably do Anubias, moss and something else lowlight. Would like to find petrified wood.

Is that the bookshelf aquarium they sell at PetCo? I was really intrigued by that when I saw it and wanted to try it out. I will be following along on this one.

I remember when my 6.6 gallon was set-up, it was awesome (With a betta!), but it was taken down because of algae problems (18 watts on a 6.6 gallon is a lot).
Hope you are going to have C02!
Goodluck!

Update, added Tahitian moon sand. Still dont know where to go with all those anubias. I really like them but they dont fit any of my scapes =(.

Also added 3 RCS to see how Karma would interact with them. She killed one instantly but didnt eat it. And i still see two in there, this one is saddled. So who knows lol.
