New 2.5 planted! Pepper had to have one too
Ok so I went to petsmart for cichlid food and ...well lets just say I got a great deal ....and.. oh hell here is what I bought
2.5 gallon, with glass hood, $11.99. I had to use a glass nipper to make a place for the heater cord to come out the top and a few places for air. I am not really satisfied with the cover I think I will jst get some plastic canvas..
Pepper got an up grade. Actually the same size but his brandy glass was taller, he seems much happier with more swim space. He has been darting in and out of the plats all afternoon.
here is a wide shot
prior to a few adjustments
I have a good bit of plants on order. I am thinking of tucking in more petite anubias between the rocks and adding some hair grass to the "valley" area. WDYT?
looking good :D good luck, im also making plans for a planted 8 gallon with, dwarf hairgrass (or microswords), water sprite (cutting from 29 gallon) and java moss, an possibly others. love the betta as well :D
Thank you. I also changed the back ground to a darker greenish one. It looks less obvious. I am anxious to trye dwarf hair grass, I love the look of that stuff!
good luck with the background :D yea i love the look of dwarf hairgrass, another plant i would love to try is madagascar lace.
Pygmy chain swords are awesome too. I can't *stop* mine from growing. It actually sent out runners through a PVC tube and out the other side.
yea ive read about them, how big do they get?
I wil have to check on that okiemavis. I wonder if Baylees has them?
