    Default Ren's 10G Palace

    With the Hood back, I have now put Ren in to the 10 Gallon tank. Is running fine and everything is good. Still waiting for the wood to sink, but is slowly. Substrate is the same as before, nice natural sand. Took some ceramic material from the main tank just to be safe. Though the wood has a big thick blanket of white stuff all over it. Not too concerned though.

    Next weekend will be buying plants for the tank. 3 Anubian Nana, and 2 others. Most like some Vals and Sag Grass I believe it is in the shop, but will ask before purchase.
    Having it planted with just those. Will try to make it appear to be sparsely planted, but with plenty of hiding spaces. Pics to come next week.

    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    the inside got very dirty after planting. Will clean it tomorrow. Hopefully Ren likes it.

    Thinking of getting Ren some company.
    Not sure what though. Does any one have any good ideas?

    shrimp are interesting critters to keep, you just have to buy ones that are too big for Ren to decide they would be good for breakfast.

    Very nice tank. Goegeous betta
    As for company - shrimp are a good option. He might be happy as a clam all by himself without any other fish. Maybe add some nerites snails (2 or 3) to help keep the algae in check? Even a mystery snail or two would work. both kinds would add color and interest. I love watching my mystery snails.

    Has a bunch of pond snails being controlled by an Assassin Snail at the moment in his tank.
    I have thought of shrimp. Just all the shrimp I can by, are either too small in adult size, or are sold as babies and would likely never get the chance to survive.

    Except one, which has nice wood shrimp. Another store once had red nosed shrimp, they looked really nice.

    Seen some super red cherry barbs which look really nice too.

    Picture of Ren when I took pictures of the hydra a couple days ago. He kept trying to get closer wanting to pose. So I had to.

    I'd put the shrimp on hold until the plants have grown some.

    Don't forget that it's not a mammal and has different social needs than us.
