A JBL heater is used on this tank. With filtration coming from an air pump to add additional oxygen and help with the circulation of breaking down waste to be then moved towards the intake filter. A Hydra Filtron 1500 filter, that is maintained once a month, to keep the water polished and looking its best.

Water changing this aquarium comes with ease, due to an Aqua Marin Water change pump in place on the tank. This powerful mini pump will push water from a bucket into the tank and out. Water changes are done on a fortnightly basis.

The decor in this tank is kept to a few items. JBL Aqua Basis is used on the base, with a 1-inch layer of natural gravel and Dragon Rock hardscape. A Variety of plants have been used to scape this tank: Anubias var. Nana, Nana bonzai, Nana coin. Java fern, cryptocoryne var. Bullosa, wendtii green/brown, beckettii. Echniodorus Bleheri.
