My 7.5gal Cube Tank

This started out as a crystal tank but eventually they moved to a 20gal so I decided to plant this one with whatever plants I had left over before I switched all my tanks to shrimp only tanks. Some were just sitting in cups, covered, almost out of water but I saved what I could.

Not sure what the plants are, one are some vals, the floating is frogbit, the mosses are a few different kinds. The stem ones not sure but they look nice. It has netlea soil, Aquaclear 20 filter. It has a few crystal culls, a few cherry culls, 3 red wag platys, about 20+ platy fry, 5 mosquito fish, 10+ mosquito fish fry and some ramshorn snails. I dose excel twice a week and some flourish once or twice a week.




20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Nice! Yay to getting a journal up!! Now you just need.. Like what? 6 more? Lol

Your stems look like limnophilia aromatica, both the regular type and the wavy type, but it's slightly hard to tell without a good slightly overhead view. I have both in my 29 so ya, that's the guess im going with ^^

My frogbit only ever reproduced but kept really short roots. Any reason for that :X?

I'm not sure diwu13, mine does that in some tanks too but this tank they grow to the bottom and I have to trim then. Other tanks are shorter. I also dose this tank with Excel and Flourish and the others are shrimp only so I don't dose them.
