So heres a update on the tank.
Its fully cycled now, and the snails have taken over the tank lol really the sides look like snow fall from all the baby snails. Im moving out the big ones as soon as I either get my 10 gallon betta tank to finish cycling(to have a 3 gallon from my Male) or get a cheap 5 gallon for them.
The plants all I can say is growth every night. They always seem to just get bigger over night.
I have added a little desk light that is running a PLant bulb, just to help with the back plants. I can not seem to find a full hood/light bar for this tank. its so odd ball.
I was thinking of maybe getting some underwater 10k LEDs but I dont know they seem to be doing well this way.
Im not going to trim them yet, as my puffers are getting ordered this weekend!
Maybe once they settle in Ill trim the plants back a tad, but for now I want as much coverage I can get.
