I've had this tank for a couple of months now. I had been out of the hobby for years (used to do mostly SW) but I wanted to get back into it and the Aqueon Minibow was an easy sell to the spouse. I struggled with aquascaping it until I realized that anubias grows quite well even under the weak light and found this amazing (albeit probably too large for the tank) driftwood. I picked up a couple more anubias today and put it all back together.
This is a five gallon aqueon minibow with stock pretty much everything. Sorry for the potato quality pics but hopefully you folks like it and please let me know if you have any suggestions! Oh, it's barely visible in the pictures but the white thing behind the driftwood is a bag of filter media I'm seeding for my new 20 long! Just ignore it please.
-Various anubias: nana, barteri, petitie, and an unlabeled one I think is minima
-Val and wisteria in the back- going to take those out as soon as my 20 is set up. They're doing ok in the light but will probably do a lot better with the sat+ I'm getting and they really make the back look cluttered.
1 betta named Duffy- not sure how visible it is in the pics but yes I do know he has mild fin rot- came from the store like that and I'm treating with salt
2 cherry shrimp- I want to get more but they're kind of spendy at my LFS so I'm waiting to see if these two will make me some babies first. One is for sure a female, the other I'm not sure, can't see a saddle but it's darker in color.
Ok on to the pics...

Too close!! No, I just love this anubias petite I picked up today. Er, ignore the fishing line. It's not there. You're seeing things.
