Introduction

This is my old Betta tank that I retired. I left it running empty and fully cycled for about a week before my girlfriend accidently came home with a golden CAE that I have no other place to put. I cleaned up the tank, put in just enough sand to make the bottom hospitable (about 1/8") threw in a random driftwood decoration I had as well as 1 silk plant and called it a day.

Inhabitants

I have used this tank already to treat a sick molly from my main tank with prazipro. I dont have anywhere to put the CAE and since hes so small right now, I just left him in there I will need to find a new home for him though.

Maintenance

I have been putting in the bare minimum amount of work in maintaining this tank, as I have other tanks to focus on with actual livestock I care about. I do, however, make sure to keep the water parameters safe and clean for the CAE that is in here.
