The tank has been doing very well with no changes. The only maintainence is adding evaporated water and 0.5 ml Seachem Flourish once a week. The tank is badly in need of a trim. Vals are popping up everywhere!

Snail :(

One of my favorite snails died. I know it’s just a snail, but it was a hardworking little algae eater. RIP little buddy.

Aquascaping (week 5)

Some changes

  • Turned flow way down since it was making it difficult for betta to swim. Won’t hurt filter. Added a sponge on the outflow to dilute outflow.
  • Replanted and trimmed plants.
  • Added a Java windelov fern on lava rock.
  • Tilted driftwood angle.
