Here is how my new tank looks so far. I am trying to make a little bonsai garden in there. :)
You can see java moss on the tree, baby tears at the base of the tree, and crypt lutea and red melon sword over on the other side. I like how it looks so far but I want to grow some moss on the gravel too (if that's possible) and keep it trimmed to look like grass.
My yellow guppy Hedwig and his lady friends are barely visible in there too if you look hard enough. :) I got a better heater for this tank ... one that actually acts like a thermostat instead of just having a temperature dial for the look of it ... Hedwig seems to love that ... he is constantly trying to mate, whereas before I guess the constant fluctuating temperatures seemed to make him feel less "in the mood"!!
I have some green fuzz algae growing on some of my plants, probably because of the direct sunlight from the window ... but there are worse-looking kinds of algae so I'm not too concerned about that yet. :) If you have any tips for how to help the plants outcompete algae let me know. I don't have any CO2 system for this tank but I started adding flourish excel the other day so maybe that will help a little.
Let me know what you think!
