That's the name of the tank. I had this tank for a while already and it has been empty but last time I had it up it was a mess every time I did a W/C so I wanted something easy to keep up with because I already have a few more different tanks.

There is always room for more tanks. Have any ideas on more plants?

Sneak peak added some plants just waiting for them to grow out before a full
tank shot. Maybe I'll move one of my bettas to this tank.

It's the fluval nano plant life led. 7800k 321lumens 8w 84 leds. It has red\white and blue moon lights. It's good for a nano tank I'll let you know how my plants grow with it later on.

You should paint the bottom of the tank black. It would keep the light from reflecting up from beneath and give a neater appearance.

Can you see the frog? I need to figure out what he can eat to get fat because he's pretty skinny.
