Sorry for not updating in a while. On the last meeting (Artifact) I got Crypts, Jungle Val, 2 nice mansanita wood pieces (donated to the school by Michael and Shane from Artifact), 1 anubia, some frobbit (along with some duckweed hard to get rid of it), some buce, Amazon Sword, bacopa, some plant that I don't know the name that is on the right of the Val that is in the back/middle, and a rootless plant that looks like Susswassertang but some members told me it as something else. Well I got all bag on that Sunday and kept it until Tuesday and then I start to feel fever so I new I was going to be absent for a couple of days. I decided to just plant them as fast as possible before my body crashed. I was able to put everything and left the wood floating. I expected it to look horrible due to doing it with no plan or previous aquascaping knowledge/experience, I just toss those plants in before they melted in the bags. Well to my surprise it doesn't look that bad, I mean is not gonna win a competition but it could have gone worse due to the circumstances. Please see picture below tanking around 1-2 months later:
If you look closer to the plant in the middle background, there is son staghorn algae growing. I think that was the Jungle Val, so I just removed it and throw it away. There is another Jungle Val on the most left side background. That one is algae free. I think is because it doesn't get as much light as the one that got infected. Then I trimmed the plants last Friday and now it looks like:
The only fish is a Betta named Snow Flake that was supposed to go on another tank. The other tank didn't cycle in time and he end up in the 40 Breeder, supposedly temporary, however now is too late to remove him because he's has been name by the staff as Snow Flake. I fear that if I remove him, he might have psychological distress plus my co-worker will hate me
I'm in the plant to buy more fish this after 11-15-19 (payday!!!). Please feel free to give suggestions. I have now idea what to put there. I was thinking 20 neon tetras, maybe 40 chili raspboras (after modifying the filter intake with a sponge filter). The tank currently has a 150W heater keeping temp at 82 degrees. Feel free to give any other suggestions.
I spoke with our principal and she's OK with hosting a meeting on out school next year.
