DaniV Posted January 7 Share Posted January 7 (edited) Back when I was first thinking of getting into this hobby, I originally wanted to get a small tank for a betta fish, but after checking out some fish at a LFS I was like, "I want a bigger tank!" And thus, I settled on the 20 gallon hex tank and started building my little fish community. With what I have in there, I believe I've reached the maximum of what I can put in there without causing it to completely crash. So I've finally succumbed to the dreaded MTS and bought a 10 gallon Topfin Starter Tank. Bought my decor last Saturday, and the plants I ordered from ACO came in today, so it was time to get this bad boy set up! I bought some Java Fern, Water Sprite, Aponogeton Crispus, Anubias Coffeefolia, and a Tiger Lotus Bulb, along with a smoother piece of driftwood and smooth rocks, and it looks like I've still got some room for maybe another plant or 2! I also bought some Root Tabs and I'm gonna try them out on this tank, see if they really make a difference. I assure you, the gravel is red, not pink! Got 2 bits of Fern in the 1 pot. Whoo! My god, this bulb is so tiny! Hopefully this one will go somewhere, cause I have had no luck whatsoever with the Dwarf Aquarium Lily in my hex tank. The stems on the Water Sprite were practically snapping apart in the package, so I tried standing them up with the gravel. Hopefully they'll grow! And lastly, the Crispus. Hopefully this will grow nice and healthy too! My Amazon Swords in the hex tank were looking really ratty for the first month, but now they look like they're improving. So I've got hopes for this one! Edited January 7 by DaniV 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
