My low tech tank I want to replicate kinda a mix between a pond and stream bottom. I am open to ideas for other plants and anything else. Also thinking about fish that look like minnows that will go with ghost shrimp.

Narrow Leaf Chain Sword
Java Moss
Dwarf Hair Grass
Duck Weed

Ghost Shrimp
Snails (Ghost Shrimp love to eat these.)

Some pea gravel mixture.
With some summit granite chunks.

10g aquarium
10g hood modified with two 26watt compact flourecent lights
Whisper 1 filter
20lb Aluminum CO2 tank with Western Enterprises regulator and cheap needle valve
Some sort of strange idea I had to get CO2 in the water it works and I get pearling and increased growth.

Aquariums should smell like a pond. Just like where the fish come from.
