20g Long - finished my planted tank setup

CindiL

Finished my tank setup all the way. 20g long for my betta and tetras. My light fixture came yesterday. It’s a Nicrew SkyLED RGB+W 24/7 with a remote. Great price.
Most of my plants I got through the LFS but the Bacopa Carolinianas, crypts Wendtii green Alternanthera Reineckii mini, and Christmas moss on a coconut shell came from Buce plants out of CA. Super nice and large plant specimens if looking for a great place to buy plants. Reasonable prices I thought also.

My sand is from Petco and I thoroughly washed it until the water was clear but it keeps leaching color. Has anyone ran into this and will it stop? I now am wishing I would’ve ordered Carib Sea Super Naturals.

I have Stoney river black substrate and sand. They both did the black tinted water thing. It goes away. I think I put a small HOB with some carbon and floss in it and it was gone overnight.

Good work! I am sure they will grow out nicely.
