My $10 10 gallon.

Final pic of this tank: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/at...3&d=1423921997


A work in progress: Organic choice with crushed clay pot capped with play sand, Rocks are from my back yard (boiled), Small drift wood from established tank, Crypts, marimos and pennywort. No fauna for about another week.

Great start! Beware you will probably get bored with the 10G and want to upgrade.

What are the lights?
