Photo Caption:My tiny 5 gal AA tank after 2 months.
It houses a few neons and Double tail betta (butterfly pattern I think)--you can see him on top of the tank in full view. I also have 2 pigmy cories waiting to join the fun, they are in a small quarantine tank for now.
Description: - 5 gallon Hex tank from AA (I use the Fluvial carbon mix in the embedded filter, it does wonders)
- Elite Mini Heater from Hagen (25W)
- Floating feeding ring
- Floating betta mirror
- 4 kg of river gravel
- a fake 'live rock' cavern
- lots of patience and dedication.
Advice: I'm a new hobbyist myself, I have this tank since 2 months only! All I'd say for now is:
Try stuff, get some info, use common sense and have fun!
Fish Kept: - 1 doubletail betta (he's blue and red with transparent fins and a brown face)
- 6 neon tetras
Corals/Plants: Theres 4 different types of plants in my tank, I don't remember the names though... and yes, that bright pink plant is real! I squeezed fake plants btw my tank and the wall to hide the wires and create a background, the result is nicer IMO than all the ugly wallpapers they sells in petstores.
Quote: Neons are way sturdier than what people generally claims.
About Yourself: This is my 1st fish tank in more than 20 years (every kid had their goldfish in the '80s yknow!) and I intended to do things the right way with this one. I always liked fish, and I realize how much I missed looking at them swim around gracefully. So far so good, I'm hooked!
