As promised.. What does a fish lover do when his father hands him $100 on vacation to use on whatever? Buy a new tank of course! Already know what's going in it. Been wanting a dwarf puffer for a very long time! It's a 10g planted tank.
Floromax substrate with some black sand mixed in for easier planting and depth.
Using a precycled filter from another tank
And of course I got some pond snails for free from a certain pet store. Gave me like 25 to take home free. They are culturing in the 2.5g.
Really my only concern is the lighting. It's a small clip on finnex and I really worry if it is big enough for the whole tank.
