Have you guys seen this little pico at walmart? It's my holding tank for my rili inbreeding project.
Drilled some small holes in the bottom of the "betta divider." It's now the now the "filter area divider" for a little bit of undergravel filter effect. My husband cannibalized an IKEA LED light to stick on the lid.
Big filter bacteria house aka lava rock
Lined the bottom of the tank with gravel for more bacteria colonization. Rinsed the rock and the gravel with hot water, that's what that misty white stuff is from.
I was hoping the Dive Clean filter would fit in the little area but it ends up being a tiny bit too tall with the water director thing. Ended up using some poret and some filter mat in the filter area with the mini powerhead on top. Still thinking about what I want to do back here.
Added some Azoo Plant Grower Bed on the backside of the lava and stuck a bit of HC there. Also added this sad mini crypt I found floating in the plant dungeon. Not sure if that LED is going to keep anything alive, but if it doesn't I can always throw in some anubias petite nana for some greenery.
Makes for a nice tiny desk pico. And the shrimp seem to be happy too. The lady in front is the whole reason for this project, she has a blue tint to her flesh. Hoping to create fire and ice rili
