HI guys.

It’d be great if you could list the specs of the tank and plant list? Other than that, the tank looks amazing! I’ve subbed to your channel.

Nice tank and cool video! I've also subbed to your channel.

By the way, I also have a walstad tank which has been running for one month & 8 days now.

I'll get back to you shortly on the plants as ill need to look them up as ive forgotten the names (all plants apart from the eleocharis are trimmings from my discus tank (video on my channel as well).

I'm thinking possibly weekly updates for this with a 7 day time lapse and then a small bit of footage focusing on main changes each week. What do you guys think. Each video will include all previous time lapse's so we always get a full over view. Thoughts?

This little tank is going to be fun I think!! I found it on a selling site. I'm from England. It's called gumtree. Same thing as Craigslist. I brought it for £20 which is $26. That included the light, a filter and a heater. I'll use the heater and filter on another project.

I think i've decided on a male betta for the tank when it is finally cycled and grown in a bit. Its too small for anything else really.

I will get a dumbo eared one as I think they look amazing. I'll try and ind a young one to watch it grow as well.

If this is successful, I will then start a second tank which will be bigger and house something else.

I love 'simple', and this totally fits the bill!
I might have missed it earlier on in your info or vids, but what kind of light do you have up top?

It's just a 5 watt light that came with the tank. Probably about 6500k.

Tell them it makes no noise. Uses barely any energy, takes up little space and is great fun for everyone.
