    1485817430486-116482231.jpg Here is my most recent tank... If only Fintello will comply...

    4 gallon Baby BiOrb aquarium, new as of a month ago. Fully cycled with large gravel and ceramic media, as well as one Anubias Nana plant and several beautiful red plants which I have forgotten the name of. Home to one beautiful (marbled) male Betta named Fintello.
    Water parameters:
    Nitrate 20 ppm
    Nitrite 0 ppm
    Ammonia 0 ppm
    pH 7.6
    GH 400-500
    Chlorine 0 (just thought I'd add. It's on my test strips.)

    Tested with strips for all but the ammonia, which is an API ammonia kit.

    Vacuumed once a week, fed twice a day except on Wednesdays and Saturdays, which are fast days.

    Naturally, I hope this wins. However, GOOD LUCK to all contestants and CONGRATS to the winner... which most likely won't be me. ;)

    P.S.: Next month you'll get to see my year old tank... looking forward to entering it!

    Haha, thanks, SnailPocalypse. Between getting Finn to comply (Finn is short for Fintello) and typing through the glitchyness of my phone's keyboard, that whole post took 10 minutes to put up. ;)

    Just kidding, that only took 5 minutes. :fun:

    These need to be in groups of 6 or more and that gravel is unsuitable for them.

    Why is your water so cloudy?
