Nothing ruins a mini aquascape quite like a gigantic HOB...
This is a low-tech 6 gallon. Easy plants, no ferts, no CO2 is the plan right now.
The filter looks WAY worse in person than it does in pics. So I was hoping to get some suggestions.
I need something to filter/move the water, but also look unobtrusive. I will be adding a bit more plants in the background but probably not enough to completely cover the eyesore that's there right now.
I can't use a canister cause the tank is on my dresser, so what do I do for an elegant solution? I use Azoo Palms on my 2.5 gallons so I could always do that, although I hate how they return water down and not out onto the surface. They disturb plants and don't break surface film.
The only planned inhabitant for this tank right now is a betta, so do I even need a filter? Could I get away with an airstone to circulate the water and break the surface, and let the plants do the filtering? Would an airstone be bad for plant growth?
Any and all suggestions are appreciated. Thanks guys!
