Smile My first serious aquarium - 20g

Hello everyone! I'm new here, about to post in the newbie forum in a few minutes.

Having moved last summer, I decided that I wanted in my new home some sort of water element, as I love water decorations. After a bit of thinking, I figured that an aquarium would be the best way to get some active water on display while adding a bit of life in this place with colorful fishes!

After three months of work, I've reached the result displayed in the attached picture. It's a 20 gallons tank. The full details tank are available on it's dedicated page. Comments are welcome, I'm a fan of constructive feedback.

I've got to agree with you on this! I originally picked them because they looked like such an odd mix of fish parts (A white fish! With a red head! And a zebra tail!), but they quickly became my favorite because of how active they are. They're pretty much always schooling and swimming together from one side of the tank to the other, and they're not afraid to do it on the front where they're the most visible.

Hi and welcome to the forum

Beware of the addiction - especially with the bettas. I started with one and am up to 6 and am constantly looking for more tank space :)

That's a red tiger lotus. It's a bit fragile, but I like the color contrast with the other plants. I'm planning to add one or two of these, my fishes value the cover it's leaves provide whenever I have to do some maintenance in the water!

Don't tell me about it, I'm thinking about putting a small tank with a betta in my bedroom so it doesn't look as barren!

You should raise the water level to the bottom of the filter because with the water falling and breaking the surface it will cause the CO2 that the plants need to thrive escape. Other than that it is a beautiful tank. I love the red lotus I recently added a small one to my 20 gallon long tank.
