I finally got some pictures up! I also got some driftwood and Java Moss
Here's my tank:
The bubble wall-I have this set up to turn on at the same time that the light turns off. I read that having too much CO2 at night can lead to the fish being killed off.
Micro Swords-I cut the runners apart a few weeks ago, and hopefully they will from individual plants that will in turn send their own runners out and carpet the bottom well.
Lighting Unit- coralife 96 watt CF Java Moss
on driftwood-I got both the driftwood and the Java Moss
yesterday. The moss is pretty nappy looking right now, but hopefully it will spread out and completely cover the driftwood. From what I've read, I'll have more than I need in a month or two.
Guppies- Here are three of my five guppies. Three females got a bad case or the preggers, and the other two are too small to mate. I'm waiting to see little fry swimming in and around the Java Moss
any day now. Chain Sword
-I wasn't too fond of the Chain Sword
when I first got it, but it's turning out to be a great midground plant for this tank. It's double in size in the last 3 weeks or so.
The Tank-This is just a shot of the entire tank itself. All that I have left to do is plant something behind the driftwood, and let everything just fill in. I have all the plants where I want them for right now; they're just kinda sparse looking right now. Also, you can see in the back of the tank a topfin filter that I initially purchased, then the bio-wheel filter that I ended up getting a few weeks later since the topfin sucked so much!
