Yeah, oakleaves are the best leaves to use in aquariums, they dont rotten so fast compared to other kinds of leaves.
That tank is gorgeous. I would very much like a tank similar to it.
Brilliant work.
I really like the natural look to it.
are those real leaves? won't they be rotting in a very short time?
Some people soak oak leaves or Indian Almond Leaves (considered better) in their tank to soften the water, make it more acidic, and release tannins. For bettas, this is beneficial. Usually, the leaves are soaked until the water is lightly colored, then removed and used again later. Other people buy the pre-made "teas" such as Black Water Extract, IAL extract, or Atison's Betta Spa.
Also, leaf litter substrate is the only way to keep some crayfish/crabs/shrimp happy, like some South american macros. they do rot though.
Thanks for your comments, im really pleased with myself, and the leaves made that little final touch
Yeah, the tank looks great, I really like the natural feel to it :) The oak leaves look nice in there. Have you considered shrimp such as RCS for your tank? They would love those leaves :)
I alreday have rcs in my 54l tank, and i want some other kind of shrimp in the 28, something like WP or CR.
Lovely nano tank. Is very natural especially with the leaves. How many endlers do you have? :)
For the moment only 7 females, im going to sell them and put some galaxys there instead.
