I have had aquariums most of my life, never anything over a 55 gallon, in which I had a breeding pair of Discus. Mostly I did community tanks. I lost the Discus tank a couple of decades ago when the heater got stuck in the "on" position, parboiling my Discus.
I became so disillusioned that I tore down that tank and have not had fish since.
Then a couple of years ago I decided to get a Crown Betta and put him in a little hex tank with some Java Moss and some Java Fern. (I have always loved Java Fern and had a lot at one time with my Discus.) He needs a bigger home...
I decided weeks ago to mail order some narrow leaf Java Fern, thinking I might set up a tank, and if I did not do that, it would look good in a large jar. Of course I knew full well that I would be getting a tank.
My local pet store had a really great deal on a 10 gallon set up, so I bought it. I know this is very small and almost nothing to most hobbyists, but it fits my space and it is all I want. This will be a heavily planted tank for a few Cardinal Tetras, some Corydoras habrosus and an albino long fin Bushynose.
I have set this tank up and am waiting for it to cycle, hoping that it cycles quickly with so many plants. I wish I could post a picture, or maybe even have a log of my experiences, but not sure how to post images here. I have uploaded an image of my little tank, but now what? Will the image show up with this post? Suggestions anyone?
