HybridHerp's 10 gallon (Post Sandy Edition)

The original thread.

I know I might be getting obnoxious with starting new threads for these tanks, but I feel that the old ones where left going nowhere for so long that I'd rather start fresh and keep better updates.

Mild trim job

Not quiet the most up to date picture (just did yesterday, gotta get new pics) but it shows the tank pretty well.

Current Fish/Inverts I have in here:
Poecilia reticulata – “Guppy” 1:3
Otocinclus sp. x6
Caridinia serrata - “Tangerine Tigers” x13
Neritina natalensis – “Zebra Nerite” x2
Neritina natalensis – “Tire Track Nerite” x3
Physa sp. – “Pond Snail” x#
Planorbis rubrum – “Ramshorn Snail” x#
Melanoides tuberculata - “Trumpet Snail” x#

Current Plants
o Foreground
Hemianthus callitrichoides- “Dwarf Baby Tears”
Hydrocotyle tripartita – “H. ‘Japan’”
Lobelia cardinalis – “Dwarf Cardinal”

I still am adding a little more livestock, and I just want to get some more HC and some Ammania sp. Bonsai in here for the empty space on the right. Debating if I should squeeze in L. 'Twisted' in here or not....

nice shot of the male guppy I got, or at least as nice as I can get on an iPhone

I went a little overboard on TT pics :P

Trumpet Snails actually look kind of cool when you stop and notice them.

Ramshorn and one of two Zebra Nerites.

Happy otto and a bladder snail that seems to have staghorn algae on its shell. At least I think its staghorn...

More to come in the following days.
