Hello, All!

I wanted to start a journal here to kind of keep track of things and hope that others enjoy seeing this stuff too. I know I love seeing/reading about everyone else's tanks through their journals. 

I currently have 2 tanks, a 20 gallon and 14 gallon. Both have Bettas with some tanks mates. I am hoping to convince my boyfriend that I need a third tank once I start my new job, which would be a guppy community tank I think. I "rescaped" my 20 gallon tank today and thought it would be the best time to start this journal off. I plan on doing the 14 gallon tomorrow and will add that here tomorrow.

My 20 gallon is currently home to:

  • Galadaeros (aka Gal) the Halfmoon Betta
  • 2 Nerite snails
  • 6ish Amano shrimp
  • 5 Otocinclus
  • 8ish Ramshorn snails

I started this tank back in January when I fell in love with Gal at a Petsmart. I have had fish off and on throughout my life, but unfortunately not to the level of care that I now know they need. I have since fallen down the rabbit hole and am OBSESSED.

And a super cute Oto. I am in LOVE with these little fish!!


Thank you for coming and seeing my tank!

Beautiful aquarium! A dark grey background would be interesting, I have not seen that before. I think black would hide algae better though if you were not planning on cleaning the back panel. The hair algae does look cool though on the castle haha
