Here is a picture to tie you over until then

Thanks and Best of luck and success!!

Updating because it's been a few months. This has officially become the tank where I dump species I don't need right now but might in the future... Definitely needs to be thinned out!

I'll chime in here with my little shrimp set up.
Not going great but it is what is. Overall aim is to get a jungle of plants filling this thing. This will take some time.

Hello!

Sorry for the delayed reply on my end. I'm hoping to get more into the swing of things now. Even setting up a new tank this weekend.

Anywho, I run at about 80, and no CO2.

I have Vallisneria americana 'Natans, Rotala wallichii, anubias nana, Limnophila sessiliflora, s repens, java moss and helanthium.

This tank is my favourite at the moment. It's been so stable and lovely to keep. I did take out the manzanita and move it in with my pygmy guorami's as they needed a bit more cover (the moss has grown in).

May all your algae get eaten, and all your scales be slimy.

So now that my reeftank is stable time to go play with a planted tank. This is only the beginning planing to add co2 and shrimp and maybe one more koi betta.

Just started this tank a few days ago. When moss grows out will be the perfect shrimp habitat.

Here's mine. Set it up exactly two months ago. I've had more trouble getting this tank stable compared to my others (7g cube, 29g, 75g) and I wonder if it is due to the small size and relatively lower plant mass.



Barry the betta is happy enough. They're pretty easy to please once you get them out of those cups

Looks like you have a pretty deep substrate bed and a lot of hardscape, so the tank is probably more like 3-4 gallons of water.

5 gallon and less tanks really do best with two water changes per week. I'm not always diligent about it but I can tell when I have been doing two water changes per week for a few week, they plants look great.

That is an amazing set-up!
Wow!
Is this the first tank you have set up?

And, welcome to the forum @chkby2 ! Glad you decided to stop in and say "hi!"
Set up a journal and tell us about your aquarium.
