  • 10g Dirted

    Hey guys. So I upgraded my 3g Pico to a 10g cause I had too much HC. I like the way it has turned out so far. Not terribly happy with the scape but I can fix that later. Plants seem to have moved well. I don't think I have enough of a cap on the dirt but I could be wrong. I'll probably be adding some more Floramax soon. Here are pictures of the hardscape and after it was planted. Still growing emersed!

        Nope. Not getting a DP. This scape wouldn't work for it.

                    Well this possibly old man just doesn't like bettas! No real reason I guess other than them not getting along with each other or anything else that moves, usually. They're one of those fish where I think, "Eh, been there. Done that."

                      I guess I get it you could always get wild bettas... like Imbellis (aka peaceful betta)

                      Do younhave any plans at all for it, fish wise?

                        I love it so far, those rocks look great as the retaining portion and I love how the hc creeps up the embankment, looking good

                          Thanks Matt! That hill was pretty difficult to make with the dirt and such. I ended up using rocks as a base and then pouring dirt and Floramax over it. Then added the stones on the outside. Still doesn't look quite like I want it to. I was hoping for a much steeper hill lol.

                          No Sean. I have no plans for any kind of stock. Well... yes I do. And the only plan so far is to catch that gosh darn bladder snail that some how got in the tank.

                            That sounds like it should stay together like that. Imo its good you didn't go higher, once its underwater the higher it is the more prone it'll be to sloughing off, also, gotta leave a little vertical room for plants

                            Once the hc grows in I'm imaging the hill and lower area covered leaving the blue/white rocks visible, that'll look so cool!
