    Hello everyone!!!

    Here is my tank...
    9F63989C-E7FB-4237-921D-DFAAE5A94F51.jpeg

    Name of tank: Heaven Gardens.

    Size: 2.5 gal.

    Inhabitants: 1 Super Delta Tale Male Betta Fish, and 1 Zebra Nerite snail.

    Plants: algae, Byron moss, “Lacy” Java Fern, Anacharis.

    How long has the tank been set up?: over 5 months.

    Water parameters:......

    ph: 7.4

    Ammonia: 0ppm

    Nitrite: 0ppm

    Nitrate: 0ppm

    Filter: API 2.5 gal. Standard.

    Lighting: 60 Watt desk clip light.

    Heater: Tetra 2-10 gal. Heater.

    Lid: transparent plastic rap.

    Decor: “wild” driftwood, white/gray rocks, pea size-penny size black/brown gravel, and a lava rock.


    This tank has no root tabs, no fertilizer, and no special substrate. I started this tank mainly as a low-budget “starter” tank. I used to have a lot more 10-20 gal. Tanks, but I recently moved 4 states away, and had to give up all of them. I plan to have a lot more tanks in the near future!

    I really like this tank because of the pathway I incorporated in the scape of this tank.

    Thank you for your time! :thanks: :)

    Hey guys!
    Here’s a look at my new tank. I took a couple smaller tanks & combined them in May & this tank has been up and running for a little over a Month. I put a lot of love into this tank & I am SO happy with how all of the fish are getting along and having such a great time in their new digs. This is the most rewarding part of the hobby.

    size: 60 gal
    fish stocking: 4 Neon Tetra, 2 Siamese Algae Eater, 2 Scissortail Rasbora, 2 Blue Moscow Guppy, 2 Variegated Cobra Guppy, 1 Opaline Gourami, 1 Bristlenose Pleco,2 Julii Cory, 3 Angelfish- Zebra, Gold, & Silver... aaaand a few ghost shrimp:)
    water parameters: amm.0; nitrite.0;nitrate;10ppm
    Planted with CaribSea Planted Aquarium substrate & sand
    Plants: crypt, javafern, amazon sword, anubias, cryptwendtii, cryptocorynes balansae, pygmy chainsword, wisteria, hornwort
    lighting: Fluval AquaSky 35W
    filter: Marineland Magniflow 360 Canister (also an established filter to boost the new cycle)

    Thanks for checking out my tank! :)

    Hello everyone again! I figured I'd enter my tank another time, this time it's much less busy (and at that much easier to do maintenance on!) Hope you like it!

    [​IMG]

    So anyway, this is my "kind of blackwater" betta tank! I'm hoping to get some more "cool and mainstream" botanicals sometime soon, but right now I'm just here with my oak leaves, rooibos tea and walnut pods. (Or, at least I think they're walnuts...)

    Tank size: 10 gallons
    Age of setup: About 6 and a half months.
    Heater/filter: This tank has a Topfin Silenstream Power filter 10, and my room is warm enough that I don't use the heater. The water temperature on its own is 80 degrees. (But for informational purposes, the heater is 50 watts.)

    Fish stocking: My female veiltail betta lives in here, that's about it. (Yes, the nerite snail escaped... I can't find it anywhere!)
    Fish's name: (Because why not?) Jeanette Michelle Lucien Corentin Anne Fleur Oceane Lauren Pierre Marie III
    Plant stocking: One marimo moss ball. It's a bit of the downgrade from the big weeping moss jungle and myriophyllum from last time I entered, but it sure is easier to clean!
    Decor: Driftwood, nuts and rocks I found at the beach, some oak leaves here and there, and an artificial cichlid rock from my local petsmart.

    Food: I feed Aqueon betta pellets and bloodworms twice a day, morning and night.
    Maintenance: I change out 25%-ish of the water weekly, vacuum the gravel and scrub off any algae on the tank walls. And if the water is looking particularly "not cool and dark", I brew a cup of rooibos tea, let it cool and add it to the tank. It's pretty cool!
