Dimensions: 36" L x 15" D x 20" H
Volume: 10800 cubic inches
Conversion - I researched that one gallon equaled 231 cubic inches. I set up this proportion:
1 gal/231 cubic inches = x/10800 cubic inches (determined by multiplying the dimensions of the tank)
African spotted leaf fish (x2):
Needs 29+gallons in the tank
Needs wood to hide behind instead of plants
Max size 6 inches
Long Fin Red Minor Tetra (x5):
Needs 10+ gallons in the tank
Needs 5+ to school with
Swim in the open
Max size 2 1/2inches
Needs 29+ gallons in the tank
Carnivorous - will eat small fish that will fit in their mouths (I don't have any fish that will fit in their mouths.)
Aggressive when breeding (I only purchased one to avoid this issue.)
Max size 6 inches
The light enclosed in this hood will provide the light needed for the fish to feel at home in this aquarium.
This heater will keep the water the right temperature for the fish and their environment.
I chose the 5lb Top Fin bright white aquarium gravel which is $5.50 per bag because I thought this gravel would look good with the plants I chose. 13 bags should be the right amount for fish tank.
I chose this tree foot for $20. It should provide coverage for the fish to sleep, live and hide.
This begonia plant would provide shelter toward the top of the aquarium needed by the longfin red minor tetras.
The jungle pod is large and colorful. I thought this accessory looked like plants from the environment of the fish I chose.
2a + 5b + c = $109.43
