Welcome to APC, the tank looks great! Are you planing any other species beside the hair grass and moss?

Why do you think you bought the wrong tank? That is a beautiful tank, but, to me it is impractical. Is that the problem?

Theres only little space on the top to clean or scape. So dont recommend the tank for aquascaping. But it does lool nice!

i guess another use for the tank itself (not for you maybe) would be to do just a hardscape ya know since its hard 2 reach in and stuff, that way you wouldn't have to trim.

Beautiful start! I’ll keep my eyes on this one! A friend of mine have the same tank. And had to change the filter twice. Luckily the company wasnt a pain to get new filters. But other than that I agree it’s difficult to work around it. So maybe just stick with your plan for now and add more plants later. Good luck!

Keep those arms wet,

That limited access is why I don't consider it a practical tank, even if it is a beautiful tank. For me the decision was based on the problem it would be to keep the inside of the glass clean. I find that is the hardest part of maintaining an aquarium.

Been about 4 months aince my tanks been set up definitely not a bonsai tank but im happy with the results.
Also started a really simple tank, wanted to see how the lucky bamboo would do in the water. You can see i didnt want to submerge it completely so until the stalk gets taller i wont be able to fill the tank to the top. That means no filter, no filter no fish...yet.

that tank is Way to small for tetras
+ you only have a few and you need 6 minimum or else social issues as well as stress will produce.
