A few months ago, I decided to get an aquarium on my dorm room. So I purchased one on a second hand site, only to find out later that it had an incandescent light bulb instead of TL lighting which is usually used for aquariums.
Finally, I was able to put the lamp in the hood. I decided to put in some plants right away:
-salvina natans, a floating plant that I got from my pond
-hygrophila guanensis, which I planted in the left background
-bacopa lanigera, which you can see on the right of the aquarium
-microsorium pteropus or java fern, which I tied to the driftwood
-java moss, which I also tied to driftwood
-Ophiopogon japonicus, better known as mondo grass
After buying the plants, I looked them up and found out that the mondo grass isn't a real aquarium plant, it's actually a garden plant and will die and rot after being submerged for a few months. I decided to keep most of it as a house plant, and put a bit in my aquarium to see how it
Because I was going on a vacation, I decided to just leave the aquarium on my dorm to cycle until I was back.
