Not seeing the problem - wait, wait, tank seems small - you deserve a larger one!? Looking forward to updates

Dwarf puffer eventually. Low light plants live and a few tall fakes. I didn't want to put a heater in it but I can't find a fish I like that won't need it.

A mix of real and fake.

I will let it sit for a week and test the water. Toss some flake in every few days to feed it.

Money money money out the door. Temps are starting to drop here and this is in our garage/laundry area. Gonna have to buy a heater today to put in here. I had one in my extras goody bin but it does not appear to be working.

I ordered a few more fakes to add. Pearlescent black.

This tank is gonna look like a bad 80's tribute but that puffer is gonna stand out like a little superstar.

Got the last of the plants in and a few old snails hanging out in the new tank.

If I put a dwarf puffer in here what do I do for algae control? Will they bother a big nerite?Click image for larger version

Not sure what would happen with a nerite. They are not exactly small.
I would deal with algae control through water changes and a timer for the lighting.

This is what I am going to have to shoot for. I would hate for the snail to be harassed and injured by little bites.
