The king of DIY i just have to say. Watching you start out in your garage with the black blanket background freezing half to death and in your basement doing all these projects to now in your very own gallery gives me a little more hope and confidence in myself to keep pushing through this hard time and the reward will pay off and i will also succeed in the hobby as well. Keep up the good work man. Ps i think this project will look pretty sweet with some shrimp and some little schooling fish.

Yes! Please add a betta, one of the ones with some red color would look great with the green. Maybe some neon tetras? do bettas and tetras get along? A Buddha statue would look amazing under the tree, on that hill, as well.

Great tank Joey. Now just the wait for the 3 month wait for it to grow out. but i don't think you should put put betta in it at least not for the first fish cause i think it will cause to much waste. As a suggestion ,try some galaxy rasboras because they wont need a heater and you can make it work as a biotope and they are beautiful.

I'd do Dwarf Emerald Rasboras or Celestial Pearl Danios, they look fantastic in person however given their size it would be difficult for you to film them well.. As a result, something like a gold tetra colony or even a green neon rasbora group would be cool! can't go wrong with a beta though....

i really look forward to seeing this tank on an update to see how it comes along didnt see anything for water movement which i find interesting or CO2 which will be just as interesting cuba high light co2 and you can get away without co2 with excel but most mosses die off with excel and if you have shrimp the ph swing from co2 can kill shrimp quick in a nano so id actually like to see the future outcome. keep it up joey i like seeing you push barriers to give the community better insight on our hobby.

Chili Rasbora and Cardinia. Just gonna say, I've had the worst time with getting weeping moss to attach to any driftwood - I had it spread over a good hunk of driftwood finally, but any irritation of it and it would fall off. If you ever get sick of it, I'd definitely try fissidens.

You should do your research before you comment. This tank is MUCH to small for a goldfish, and ESPECIALLY to small for a Pleco. A normal Pleco can get up to two feet long. (This wasn't meant to be rude, just informative.)

It's pronounced bone sigh, and it's not a miniature tree exactly, it is a tree that if not pruned would  have the potential to be a full sized tree/shrub, just FYI, I love your channel you teach me so much keep it up !

Oh. Science Teacher must have meant a little while. He has a 60 tall. Any other Suggestions? Eel like fish perhaps? Any Miniature Stingrays? (Probably Not) Thanks for telling me. Might end up with piranhas.

Hayden S oscars need 55 gallon and above. You can find that on every fish website on the planet. Sure he can be fine in a smaller tank for a little while but eventually your going to have to up size.
Hayden S
Hayden S - 6 years ago
My Science teacher has an Oscar, and he said it'd be fine in the tank. Black Piranhas are a bit smaller, and Red Bellies are MUCH Smaller than Oscars. I don't know though. I may just do a MASSIVE Aquascape with either 2 Red Piranhas or a interesting white Eel-like fish whose name and species I dont know. If you know any Eel like fish, let me know. I want something bigger keep in mind.

ImDead Vlogs I actually know next to nothing about kings, but a koi betta would be so perfect for the bonsai theme. The one problem with fancy Betts are their delicate fins, but I would be more than happy to wait the months it takes for the moss to cover those little sharp branches.

Wynne Eden
Wynne Eden - 6 years ago
Try Pygmy Killifish, Leptolucania ommata (a/k/a 'lemon' killifish). They are very forgiving of water quality, are temperate fish vs. tropicals, and a small group of them would look great in the tank. They are active, moving up and down the water column in shallow water like that. Not sure if your 'bonsai' will impact your water ph or not, but they like acidic water - will still survive and thrive in alkaline as well.

They are also pretty, but tiny.

I have had a sorta medium density planted 10 gal. with about a dozen Pygmies, 4-5 Okeefenokee Pygmy Sunfish, Elassoma okefenokee, and a few Least Killifish, Heterandria formosa plus random small snails and 'wild' glass shrimp running for 5+ years. All of them breed pretty regularly, maintaining a pretty steady balance of fish. I do have a sponge filter in the tank, and do 10-15% water changes about every 2 weeks. The Elassoma eat the snails, everything leaves the shrimp alone to pick the scraps off the bottom.

As such, I would really appreciate some advice on how to filter a tank like this other than by natural means, whether by HOB filter or however else, pretty please. My current tank has an undergravel filter but I definitely want to replace that somehow so that I can plant carpeting plants. I also think I'm too inexperienced to trust that the tank will biologically filter itself!

Lisa T they need heavily planted tanks little decoration is no good it stresses them out just make sure they won't rip his fins
Lisa T
Lisa T - 6 years ago
Donny7704 animal jam Bigger is usually better because it allows a more stable water quality but with Bettas that have been bred to live in and thrive in (somewhat) small containers (not cups that's for sure) in warm climates giving it a bigger space is somthing unnatural. Beta fish are probably one of the only fish where when adding it to a 10 gallon aquarium it's so much larger than what they have evolved with that it's more unnatural than a 5 gallon whereas most other fish come from wild or close to wild stock that any tank under 100 gallons is so much smaller than what they are used to. Now unless the room is heated to tropical levels your going to need a heater in any Betta aquarium. Remember the goal of successful fish keeping is to try to best emulate the perfect environment/conditions the fish has evolved to thrive in. For a regular Betta. that's a small tank. good luck choosing
Lisa T
Lisa T - 6 years ago
Donny7704 animal jam where did you hear bettas need at least 10 gallons? I have read lots and lots and kept quite a few Betta Fish. they don't do well for me in anything larger than 5 gallons it seems. They really only need good water quality with little decoration that can catch on their fins aka plastic plants and definitely a heater in most aquariums.
MoultingRook
MoultingRook - 6 years ago
Dude. We get it. I'm totally up for giving fish as much space as
possible, and fish like betta are constantly being put in too small of
spaces than they should. However, with decent care, they can do well in a
five gallon tank, though I wouldn't go any lower. Mine is perfectly
active and healthy, with great water parameters as well. I'd like to
upgrade him to a 10 gallon tank and that's usually the minimum I'd suggest to
people looking to get a betta, but the unnecessary comment-spam is
really irritating. A betta fish in the very capable hands of Joey would
do just fine in this 7.5 gallon tank.

interested to see if you can grow that HC without pressurized co2. I barely got it to grow without CO2, and what did ended up getting algae within it due to how hard it is to vacuum the HC without uprooting it. Best of luck! I would recommend Glosso. It ended up being way way easier to grow than my HC and hairgrass.

Flintlock
Flintlock - 6 years ago
Donny7704 animal jam Well you could say that about any fish and the Aquarium trade itself. However youve got to consider that where many of these fresh water species come from are usually shallow and slow moving rivers and streams...so space is already restricted from ghe offset. In addition, providing you have enough room for a decent sized shoal (which I would argue this gentleman has), their welfare is significantly improved from that point alone as you are taking into consideration thwir behavioural needs and reducing stress.

Donny7704 animal jam 2.5 isnt outdated, but it is the smallest they can live in, they thrive in 5 gallons or more, and for a community tank it has to be at least 5 or more females to prevent bullying, I wouldnt do any smaller than a 20g for a community. Ive got a 75 gallon community with 5 female bettas in it with platys and swordtails.
Donny7704 animal jam

Teddy Gray - 6 years ago
Donny7704 animal jam bettas need a bare minimum of 2.5 gallons, heated and filtered. I personally follow the rule of 5 gallons per betta (if doing a female community tank). Also ghost shrimp stay very small, also the betta will probably eat them so they wouldnt be in there long.

I totally vote Plakat Betta. The shorter fins would help minimize any damage from the tree, and they are a labyrinth fish so they tend to do well in natural tanks. Plus they have personalities like arowana, which is super adorable.

ShipwreckedPuffNs - 6 years ago
Lucky YOU! I happen to be an avid betta keeper! And as long as you're willing to put in the extra work for waterchanges, Bettas will FLOURISH in a tank even as small as a 2.5 gallon! Additionally, while 10 gallons IS small, it ultimately depends on filtration, the work you're willing to put in, and what's IN the tank. He has live plants in there that will NATURALLY get rid of ammonia, and oxygenate the water, for one. While he's not adding a filter, you can BET that Joey will be giving good waterchanges to this tank, etc. AND as I mentioned before, Ember Tetra's produce a MINISCUL bioload that the few plants in this tank can easily handle. Afterall...have you even seen a 1/2 fish POO? GUESS WHAT, IT'S TINY. Since he may not be planning to heat this tank, white clouds or minnows might actually be better as they like cooler temps, but it's hardly abusive to give a fish a good, clean environment that they can and WILL thrive in. This will be my last reply to your comment, however, because if you're serious in that view, there's really no changing your mind. I can only hope that anyone reading these comments will be able to read what we both have put, and come to their own, EDUCATED opinion on the matter. (To anyone reading this: Don't always trust what people say, not even what I say! Always do your own research, and come to your own conclusions!)
Donny7704 animal jam
Donny7704 animal jam - 6 years ago
ShipwreckedPuffNs actually the only fish that can be kept in a ten gallon is a male beta. it is abuse to pit fish in such small tanks. and i am not a troll i am just trying to break the outdated info
ShipwreckedPuffNs
ShipwreckedPuffNs - 6 years ago
Huh, didn't know I'd be dealing with a troll today...but JUST incase you're truly a well-intentioned soul, sure, I'll bite. Ember Tetra's average at about 1/2 an inch, with the largest reaching 3/4 of an inch. He could have a small school of 6 in this 7.5 gallon, and they'd have plenty of space, and release a minimal bioload that the plants should be able to EASILY take care of. They are also a PROOVEN "nano" fish, meaning that they FLOURISH in smaller, planted tanks. Additionally, NO fish technically "chooses" ANY tank we humans put them in, so technically, we "force" them into EVERY tank.
Much like the ember tetra, you can now consider yourself

actually 7gal is plenty any more they just kinda hang around one area and not use the whole space, plus with no filtration in there to disturb the water surface really limits what you can use. bettas come up for air, you don't have many other fish that do that and can live in a 7 gal

SWORDTAIL ..
Moist Owlette

Swordtails get quite large, so I would say 20 gallons for a swordtail. A betta or some endlers would be fun, though.

That would be badly overstocked. Word tails can reach 5 inches long and need 20 gallons, it's only 7. Also, ember tetras are the only tetras who will thrive in a tank as small as 7 gallons. And cories all need 10 gallons or more. But a school of embers and shrimp or a betta and shrimp would be nice.
Cooper Olm
Cooper Olm - 6 years ago
That would be WAY over stalked for this. I believe he says it's a 7 gallon. It would fit the betta and some shrimp at most. It definitely doesn't have the floor space for a school of corydora.

That tiny bonsai tree is absolutely adorable! I'd love one for my 5 gallon betta tank, is there an online store where I could buy one?

Ps, I'm a little biased towards betta fish but a halfmoon dumbo would look gorgeous in there, the rippling fins kinda fitting the 'zen' theme

R ? I've used woods in scapes before and I've never had a issue? I've never read anything that said wood was bad, most things I've read even say it's really good for the tank? Not to sound rude but could you link me to the source?

using woods (out of mangrove) is toxic in tank... especially when it start to rotten.

Mitchell Lubline
Mitchell Lubline - 6 years ago
Bri's Reef would still run a sponge filter that's air powered their cheap and clean a tank nicely while collecting algae and food on the sponge that the shrimp can attack while the air bubbles break the surface tension rather nicely. Biggest cost of a air sponge filter is the pump. The sponge itself on Amazon runs $3.95 and up while a 4-8 gallon air pump runs $10-25 and then air tubing depends on the store for 20ft.

As a newbie entering the hobby Please do a video for caring for a tank like this. You made the cleaning and the filtration for your larger tanks seem so easy. I'm inspired, but setting it up is different then maintaining it.

This is gonna be a long comment but I'm full of questions! For example this seems like a ton of substrate compared to your normal style, and you've implied the more you use the more problems you can have. Will in not matter in a nano with minimal stocking?

Go to ThePlantedTank Forum, there are tons of people experienced with nano planted tanks there. Small tanks like this don't even need filtration if you can keep up with water changes.

If you want a simple, geometric design to the back glass of your aquarium. Home Hardware sell the window stuff with a geometric design and it's a lot less than 10 bucks. :) I have it on my 35 gallon tank with black foam core on the back. Looks cool!

FYI those trees are not real bonsai trees. It was never alive in its original shape. If you look carefully the trunk is made of wood coloured putty and the branches are just manzanita branches glued onto the tree with the same putty.
