    I've been thinking about doing this for quite some time... and finally manned up and did it yesterday!

    I took Magikarp's tank from this, which was nice.. but I felt it was too cluttered. That anubias took up much of his swimming space so I moved it to my 29G.

    Now he has this, I took a smaller slab of wood from my 29G as well as a crypt plant, I also got rid of the java fern and put it in my 29G. Now he has MUCH more room to swim. I also added more gravel because it was a little low before. I've very happy with the results!

    Such is the life of having a fish pond lol

    Is that one of those Aqueon bowfront deals?
  9. rmarkhamWell Known MemberMember

    Sure is! I have 2 and I really like them, I just use a different bulb with it.

    I have a 2.5 gallon one that i got from goodwill, and a glass one that I also got from goodwill. I prefer the glass ones over the acrylic ones for sure.

    Our 3 gallon is acrylic, and there are suction cup marks from when my son moved the betta hammock around. Grrr! I have a magnetic thermometer for it now!

    BTW, I wish I had the problem of too many plants! My anubis are nanas though, and don't get as big.

    That is an anubias nana :)

    That's odd, I wonder what kind of ludwigia it is...I've had peruensis and...and...darnit now I can't think of the name. The common one that everyone has :p
