No frills ~ simple 2.5

View attachment 45576

Perfecto tank, inert gravel, 10w daylight cfl, no filter, guppy grass & salvinia, betta, three ramshorn snails, 4 drops liquid ferts daily, and weekly 50% water changes.
Wow that is a sweet tank. I bet the betta loves having no flow due to a filter. Looks very lush.

Nano #3. Same tank, substrate, filter, etc. as before.

Flora: Eriocaulon type 2, Proserpinaca (?), Hemianthus glomeratus, Anubias barteri var. 'nana petite', Hemianthus callitrichoides, Eleocharis 'belem', and some species I've forgotten (some kind of rotala?)

Fauna: none, meant to add shrimp, but never got around to it. I didn't keep this tank set up much longer after this picture was taken.

here are some shots of my old setup in my 2.5

I had 7 mosquito rasbora with cherry shrimp and mostly twigs, indian almond leaves, and rock with the exception of some java moss and duckweed. I had an airline attached and had a single incandesent light over the tank.
