I've decided to remodel my 5G to a planted tank. I'm focusing on low-medium low light plants. Heres a picture of the tank currently.
I plan on removing both fake plants and fake plastic decorations. I'm going for the all natural look. Here are all my plans:
-New black background (black posterboard about 0.50$)
-Sand as substrate (PFS)
-New AC20 filter (currently using marina i25 internal)
-Remove all fake decorations
-Adding driftwood and constructing a rock cave with silicone
-Removing airstone in hopes that AC20 will have enough surface agitation
These are the plants i plan on having (sorry if i misspelled):
-hygrophila corymbosa augustifolia
-Xmas moss (on dw)
I currently have 1 betta and 5 amano shrimp in the tank. I plan on adding 5 more amanos and 5 RCS.
I really hope you guys read and follow along and of course enjoy! Thanks!
