I got bit by the betta bug, with a side dish of MTS. So I now have a new planted 5gal. It was a gift from one of the Arkansas tornado refugees I had crashing at my house. They passed me a 10gal as well but I have no place to put it so its in a closet for now.
Ok so here's the specs:
2 Java fern (a baby and an 'adult')
1 crypt wendtii plantlet
1 corkscrew val
water wisteria (small sprig)
Brazilian pennywort (small sprig)
duckweed (not much right now, but I'm sure it will spread)
5 tiny marimo moss balls. They are about the size of a nickel.
Filter: Azoo Palm Filter The 16gph one, very adjustable flow, and I have lots of room to add/change the media. betta has no problem with it. SILENT.
Heater: 25w Hydor theo heater
Lights: Low light, cant remember exact bulb specs but I do know its low.
1 crowntail betta
2 small ramshorn snails
1 bladder snail (it will meet its doom as soon as it shows itself when my best friend ISN'T there. You'd think it was a puppy the way he reacted.)
The only ornament I made myself. Tumbled river rock glued together with black aquarium silicone. I let it cure for about 2 weeks just in case, although there were no super thick spots.
The weird grass thing in there came with my original snails from a friends tank, I don't know what it is but I don't have high hopes in its survival. Honestly it looks like I could have pulled it out of my front lawn. I'm still trying to figure out how to make everything look better, I know it will when everything grows in but I don't know if I have them placed very well to start. If I'm going to do any moving id prefer to do it sooner rather than later. I put the crypt in the front left, its super small. The javas are behind the rocks, the val is front right corner, and the rest are doing their "ill be wherever I wanna be" thing.
Any advice on placement would be awesome. I don't want to keep moving things around any more than I have to.
