    Thought I would make a journal for my new project now that the 10G is going nicely. I had an 8" acrylic cube made by a seller on AquaBid called Usmc1. It is honestly the nicest tank Ive ever owned construction wise.

    The purpose of this aquarium is because I miss owning a betta. I finally decided on a Red HMPK Dragon...paid for him this morning he may have to spend a day or two in a large bowl until the tank is 100% but Im sure thats larger than what he is housed in currently. Here is a photo from the seller:


    Anyway, the tank is going to be very simple. I have a catalina 13watt PC fixture, an azoo palm filter. The substrate is going to be peat and laterite left over from the 10G capped wth about 5lbs dark brown sand. Hardscape will be some corkscrew willow twigs and some small dark grey/black river stones. Plants wll be a few anubias petite, a large C.lucens and a few stems of moneywort.

    Pics of the tank to come in the next few days.

    Thanks

    I am curious what he really looks like, he looks pink in all the photos but dragons usually just appear silver bodied in real life. I am glad I sucked it up and clicked buy on this one instead of waiting till the tank was 100% I would have regretted loosing him thats for sure.

    Lack of planning on your part doesn't justify an emergency on my part.
