Hello! New member here, here’s my tanks!

Cyanic

Hello hello!
ive been keeping fish as a hobby now for 8 years, but I’ve almost always had a betta of some sort my whole life.
i started with bettas in 6th grade, and had around seven, five gallon tanks running in my room, all of them planted. Currently I work at a small local pet store where I love to maintain our aquariums and reptile enclosures.

Right now I’ve gotten myself down to my 40 gallon and a 10 gallon, all low tech planted tanks.

Stocking:
Brilliant rasboras, a German ram, Siamese algae eater, a couple synodontis lucipinis, banjo catfish, a couple stray zebra danios, rubber lip pleco, dwarf crayfish, agassizzi cories(maybe?), 1 blind panda cory, and a pair of weather loaches (Noodle and Worm)
(Yes, it’s a bit overstocked but I’ve had it running for around a year and it’s been doing wonderfully. I always keep an eye on the parameters )
Plant-wise I have:
Giant jungle val, regular jungle val, crypts, anubias, subwassertang, Christmas moss, dwarf hair grass (I think), java fern, and dwarf tiger lillies!

stocking:
Dragonscale betta, 4 elegans cories, amano shrimp, Malaysian trumpet snails, and a couple mystery snails.
Planting:
Crypts, subwassertang, a dwarf tiger lily, and some other cool plant I got but don’t know the actual name of.

I hope to have fun on this forum and learn even more about fishkeeping!

Hi and Welcome to Fishlore.

Welcome to Fishlore! As everyone else said, you have some very nice setups there. :)


You said you were unsure of the name of one of the plants in your smaller Betta tank. If you are talking about the vine-like plants with the clover like leaves in the last pic those are called Hydrocotyle Tripartita Japan.

That’s exactly the plant I was talking about!! Lol
And that looks like that’s what it is, thank you!
