Project redo 35g :) The journal
I thought i would just share my journey of my first re sculpt of my 35g :)
It has been up and running since febuary, and i was always so bored of the layout, tried different ornaments and it never worked for me. So a complete redecoration was the key :) SO FUN!
Heres a before:
Added flourite substrate instead of gravel, changed the background and put the plants back in
It was so cloudy for about 24 hours and a water change!
Grabbed a few potted plants from the local fish shop
I found this marsh root on ebay and fell in love with it!
Some more plants arrived, but i'm still waiting on some creeping jenny, and i decided on a dwarf hairgrass carpet
This is where i am at right now, any suggestions would be lovely on what if anything would make it much better. The back and corners left will be filled in with creeping jenny :)
Good job! Im going to be doing this same thing to my first tank next weekend. :)
Thats definitely a very unique piece of driftwood. The tank is looking nice! I can not really see anything else I would change with the way it is now with the execption of maybe some moss on some of the branches.
Im currently waiting on riccia arriving :) going to put bits on each branch of the driftwood, but still leaving most uncovered.
good job on the redo it looks great!
i have one question for you though,
do i see albino cories?
if so your substrate is very bad for them. its very sharp and will wear down there barbels (bables? babels? their "whiskers")
just a heads up!
True it is an albino cory, I have 3. The substrate is only a base, once the tanks grown in it will be covered with dwarf hair grass which corys love to clean up :) Im aiming for no substrate on show.
has been about 46 days since I last posted!
All I have done since is add 2 more plants (another amazon sword and forgotten the others name)
Added some floating water lettuce and just let it grow! I have done no pruning or trimming, wanted it all to overgrow first, have used flourish comprehensive weekly, and also added flourish excel weekly... Here is it now. (I am very sorry about the picture quality, I seriously have no decent camera!
How does your Betta get along with your Platties?
I'm considering Platties for my Betta tank and would like to know if it's a bad idea first;-)
Limeylemon your tank is looking Great!!! Like one big flooded jungle. Very nice work.
Just becareful with the excel some plants will melt when you use it. Also I think I have heard it can be bad for the fish if it is overdosed.
