The aquaponics tank is here!

Ta-dahhhhh!

So, this is my new tank. It’s going to be a fun project, but I can already tell you that the tank design of the top part is going to be a pain in the butt to clean. I put a spider plant in the top part for now. I also exchanged the purple gravel for white, as I didn’t end up getting the fish I had planned.

This is my new fish, a female veiltail betta. I don’t know if she’s figured out where the food is yet. I also haven’t named her yet, because I’m waiting to see if she makes it. She was pretty stressed out last night. Eventually I’ll add some algae eaters to the tank, but I have to wait until there’s some algae. I got this fish because she was the most lively and fun to watch at the pet store.

The initial setup after the replacement tank came.

I had to move Michaelangelo’s tank to the kitchen, purely due to available plugs. I’m not sure I like it there. I will be playing a lot with the setup for a while.

But yay, new fish!
