This tank was supposed to be a temporary set up to house the fish while i redid my big tank.

I had the DW laying around so i threw something together. I pulled a few plants from the big tank out. Treated them for the BBA that plagued the big tank and tossed them in here.

Now that its all up and running, i decided that i kinda like it and am going to keep it. I plan to stuff it full of crypts, ferns and moss.

Tank: 55g
Filter: AquaTop 500 UV (not to impressed with it)
Light: Coralife T5 NO, single bulb

Hardscape: Locally collected DW. PFS. and locally collected rocks.

Plants:
Windelov
Trident ferns
Lace Fern
C. wendtii red
C. beckettii
C. nurii
Nana petite
Hydro V
Hydro sib
Fiss
Mini fiss
Fiss Geppi
Notocyphus lutescens
Narrow Java
Willow moss

My "just for now" tanks have a terrible pattern of becoming permanent set-ups.

Crypts growing out in spare tank? Might as well toss some cherry culls in there to keep 'em clean. And hey, look! Otos on sale and I've got room. Gimme a couple amano too while you're at it--and ooooo nice wood!

Three months later I have it all rescaped and am left wondering where I can get some more good crypts for my original project.

Let's all just be glad nerites don't have access to toilet paper. Hooligans that they are we'd never get our tanks clean!

HA! no doubt!

i actually saw a large MTS in this tank that other day that 3 nerite eggs on it

Those Supreme Reds are really red. They even pop against a white substrate, really amazing!

Best,
