I started out with a 10 gallon tank, nothing crazy, just something for my Betta fish. Then I was tired of the rainbow puke in my tank, went with something more natural. http://imgur.com/a/s5LT2#6
- 10g tank updates
So then after that tank, i wanted something bigger. There was a sale at petsmart for one of the 29g tall tanks. Came with lights and the whole works, figured i would try something planted. Well I learned a lot about light, algae and tiny little snail eggs all over my tank. I also learned that I don't like fluorite, as it is to bright. The tank was also hard to clean and it just wasn't something that I had time for, tore it down and now I have been waiting. http://i.imgur.com/vso5nCm.jpg
- 29g about a week after planting.
Dollar a gallon sale at petco, picked up my dream tank of a 20g long. I was making more money now than at the time i started those two other tanks, and with tax season i figured its time to go all out. I want CO2, high lighting, iwagumi, HC carpet... I want the moon.
