This is my first journal on these forums. I got a free 10 gallon not very long ago, obviously this lead to a new project.
Gear: 10 gallon tank 20 X 10 X 12
50 W Jager heater
Fluval U1 undewater filtre.
Lighting: Two 23W fluo compact daylight bulbs. Totally ripped off this build for lights : 10 Gallon Riparium Experiment
Except I place mine a couple of inches higher. They are about 18 inches above the water.
Right now I am waiting on some riparium gear in the mail so I set up the aquarium with some trimmings from my other tank and filled it completly.
I am using construction sand as the substrate. Along with a couple of river stones.
Right now got some Hygrophilia trimmings floating around.
Bacopa monnieri floating around waiting for planters.
Some trimmings of hydroclyte planted also.
I have a pot of Echinodorus cordifolius 'Tropica Marble Queen' waiting for a planter also.
I wanna grow the bacopa emersed and probly add some ruellia bluebells or whatever I can get my hands on.
A single betta probably. There is a local breeder in Montreal that has some high quality bettas. I am gonna check with him if he has some low grade ones for sale also
Rocks and branches from local river:
