This is my first aquascape(and tank in general) as I became very fond of the hobby a couple years ago. I recently decided to stop blowing thousands on my drifting and motorcycling hobbies, by distracting myself with this fun new hobby.
My old roommate gave me this 10g and I thought it would be a nice size for learning. After quite some research I decided to buy the equipment, this is what I have:
- Fluval 206 filter
- Marineland LED Double Bright 18"-24"
- ViaAqua 50-Watt heater
- CaribSea Eco-Complete 20-Pound Planted Aquarium
- CaribSea Super Naturals Crystal River Sand
I found this piece of driftwood while kayaking and thought it would make a nice piece for the tank, boiled for a couple days and soaked for a few days. Looks decent in the tank.
The next day my filter came in so I got things started, the rock is there to weigh the wood down, will be removed once the log is... logged.
Picked up a betta for some movement in the tank, as they are pretty invicible.
Then got some cute ghost shrimp
Today I picked up some more ghost shrimp and some plants. It's funny watching the shrimps eat, since they're transparent. I also got some surprise teeny fish that managed to hitch a ride with the shrimp.
- Some sword idk
- Java Moss
- Dwarf Baby Tears
I'll spread the DBT tomorrow or something.
This is all week 0 for my tank, moving a little fast yes, I know. I will be taking in a sample of my water to my lfs for testing.
As for design I have no intentions, just want it to look clean and simple.
