I like the way it looked and that it had a larger viewing area and it fit perfectly in the corner I had chosen for it. I also wanted as much space as possible for decorating and making sure my fish and future tank mates wouldnt cramped.
I decided on a GREEK and ROMAN Theme tank! These are some of the decorations that I chose:
Greek and Roman Pillars
Broken Greek Vase
I also went for everyones plant advice and bought 2 types of plants ( I didnt get a picture of them outside the tank- but If someone can help me identify them that would be great!)
Some other accessories I purchased were a 50 watt heater, magnet cleaner and thermometer.
I also got a FLuval gravel cleaner to keep my white gravel nice and clean!
I also picked up some Betta Basics and Flourish fertilizer for my plants (I still need to get one more branch of the leafy green one for the other side to balance everything out but the store needs to restock!)
Voila! Here is what everything looks like all put together! The last plant I need to go back for will go in the corner that looks a tad lonely at the moment.
(Be warned that the top of this tank is small so my poor Greek and Roman Pillars couldnt fit into the auctual tank itself no matter how hard I tried!
Here is a picture of the tank with the blue night mode LED light on
I also had a stowaway baby snail sneak onto my bag where they put my plants. He is SO small I have no idea what kind of snail he is but I carefully put him in the tank and threw in some betta pellets and hoped that he would make it!
In the morning I caught him munching on a betta pellet that had sunk to the bottom and he looks happy!
He is literally the size of a sesame seed – so I have decided to name him….
My questions are:
Does anyone know the breed of plants I put into the tank?
Does anyone know what kind of snail he is?
