    Default New Tank Setup! How did I do?

    Hey guys,

    Just finished putting together my new tank for my adult female, Zelda. She's now in a 18x18x24 Tall Zoomed. Didn't realize how much more space I'd have to decorate until I got it home, and then had to go back out again and purchase some more foliage to fill it in . Just wondering if there's anything I'm missing. Also wondering if it would be worth the investment in a MistKing system at some point in the near future, as I have heard mostly good things about them.

    Any comments and/or constructive criticism is more than welcome.



    Cheers!

    It looks good! Plenty of hiding spots

    Just a note about the live plants, I would add a drainage layer at the bottom for the water to go when you have to water them. A soaked substrate will lead to root rot if it does not have drainage. Other than that, it looks good.

    I actually do have hydroballs with mesh separating them from the substrate. Looks like the substrate may be covering them towards the front of the tank however. Thanks guys!

    Ah ha! That's why I can't see them lol.

    Sometimes the mesh does fall down, I have that problem in my viv, I didn't cut the mesh an inch longer than the tank width and depth
