So this is it... I'm starting back up after a 5 year hiatus, and I'm trying to remember what I'm doing!
I currently have a 5g nano with a ridiculous sponge filter, ecocomplete substrate (used all 20lbs - mistakes were made. scooping some out to put in my redone betta cube at work tomorrow!) med/high lighting with found bits from my last tanks (don't know spectrum or temperature, but it's a 15w CFL. helpful i know)
We have hard water, and I'm looking to start out with some lovely bright deep rich red cherries when it's time for fauna. I just planted my dwarf hairgrass clumps, and tied my little bit of phoenix moss to the mesh in the back - it looked like more, i swear!
Anyone have some critique/criticism before I get too much further? I'd love to make this look lovely, as it's on my desk at home and I'm kind of at a loss for how to beef it up without going overboard.
Think cherries are starting too easy? Should I get some crystals? dare I say it... BLUE SHRIMP?
Sky (and my paycheck) are the limit... but for an I-just-did-a-thing how's it lookin?
