こんばんは!Hi, how’s it going?

Today it’s Independence Day here in the States, and I spent it at home relaxing, watching a lot of baseball, and doing a lot of research for the new aquarium. I have a rough plan for how I want to decorate it, and the mockup is below:

I want to keep the tank kind of simple, with a black and white color scheme, with the black being some flat shale rocks, one standing, and two flat, and the white being the substrate (gravel). Then, I’d like to have at least two type of plants, maybe three. After the success of growing plants in the small aquarium, I realize that they can grow fast! So, I am going to start with just a few and see how it goes. The mockup only shows the starter plants, but I’d like to have it pretty lush in the back of the tank, and keep the front and left side of the tank open.

As for fish, I will keep this a barb tank, and add a Siamese algae eater or two. And then I should have enough room to get a few more barbs. I saw some green barbs at the pet store today, so I might go for those. The last thing will by my Malaysian trumpet snails. I hope they thrive!

Anyways, I hope you had a nice day, and we’ll see you tomorrow!
