5.5 gal

Here's my current 5.5 gal tank.

I will be getting 10k, 12 watt lighting this week, along with a DIY CO2 this week as well. I want to bump up this tank!

Currently there's a standard 40W bulb, heater and a sponge filter.
1 male betta, and 5 amano shrimps.



I may want to remove that brown rock in front of the driftwood. Any plant suggestions?

I think your moss is dead mann. I like how the wood is so dont move it lol. Also I'd get another substrate. One more for plants. Unless that is one.

If you want to stay with a gravel substrate, I would use pea gravel and use root tabs. Plants seem to like it better than really large pieces of gravel.
