Mebbid's first dirted tank 10g

Since I am going to need to replace my 55g tank soon I have been exploring different substrate options and thankfully I have this handy dandy 10g tank to test different options out on I tried out flourite for a while and just really didn't like it so I thought I'd try out a dirted tank this time.

I used Miracle grow organic garden soil with a cap of pool filter sand. I also painted the back of the tank black rather than go with a normal background.

Light: Dimmable 8 bulb DIY Cree fixture
Heater - Eheim Jaegar 50w
Filter - Sunsun 604b

Panda Corys - 6
Cardinal Tetras - 6
Betta - 1
