Sorry for the delay. I only just found a piece of furniture that would hold the two aquariums lol.
This is inside the new filter: It has black foam in the pointy nose as well as the sides:
that filter is so large looking in this tank
anubias on driftwood (small piece of drift wood!)
Marimo ball ordered online. It's pretty fun. I was thinking about getting a few more?
Java fern which is looking a little worse for wear since I got it!
Little floating plant I got from Byron and can't remember what it's called!
Sorry for the murky front and glare. There was some sticky tape residue on it and I haven't gotten it all off yet.
I'm thinking aobut putting a betta in this coming week and then not adding any fish until the fall. Then I'd like to add 3-5 pygmy cories. I'd also like to put several marimo balls on the bottom. I thought maybe the cories would like to swim around them. AND I'll need some more taller plants I think for the betta to swim through. And maybe get a smaller filter! lol
