10g planted RCS tank, 55g community Journal (update heavy)
Hey there! Thanks for stopping by, i am pretty new to all of this aquatic addiction but am loving it so far, here i will share my journey as i grow my hobby.
I started with a 10gal from lfs and soon realized i needed something bigger. They also didnt tell me anything about cycling and sold me fish and my tank the same day :/. I try not to go there anymore but pick them over petsmart/walmart... But 2 of my 3 original fish died. My black moor lived, and now lives in my 50gal community tank. I moved everything to the 50gallon and left the 10g sitting a few weeks. Now i am getting into planted tanks and shrimp so thats what the 10 gal will be used for. Its setup in the wife and i's bedroom. The 50gal will stay unplanted for the most part (explain later) and will house fish to make the wife/kid happy. (As long as it fits my guidelines i dont want to overstock or kill any fish because violence)
So, in my tanks i have...
CaribSea Floramax substrate
(2) 10wat aquarium cfls (not twisted)
(4) patches of dwarf hairgrass
(1) fancy tail guppy
(3) zebra danios
(The fish are only there to eat tiny white worms coming from my newly purchased soil)
(5) zebra danios
(2) african dwarf frogs
Black mystery snail
Might sound pretty stocked to some people but theres plenty of room for everyone...
Will be back with pictures and updates just wanted to get this thing rolling!
Oh! The 10gal has a filter rated for 10gal, and the 50gals filter is the big double headed one rated for 75gal+
I also have a slate cave/hideout i made recently and will be posting that
