Here is my first ever fish tank pretty sure its 10g (900mm long 230mm wide x 250mm tall, These photos are from when i first filled it, I need to get some better photos of the plants I have since added, I have put in some hair grass and Glosso (I think I didnt pay to much attention to what I was buying) Also I dont know how much light my tank is getting, perhaps too much as I am starting to get some hair algae and the plants are growing fairly fast. I am thinking of getting a mini Co2 setup to try get some good ground coverage.
Added some Rummy nose Tetras and a bronze catfish, need to get a few more catfish to keep this one company.
I have not tested the water yet or added any additives, going to test tonight and hopefully get everything i need to keep the water under control on the weekend (along with more fish!)

Low Tech Tank Show-and-Tell (low tech can be lush, too! =)
Your tank is inspirational to me. I love the looks of those crypts! What crypts do you have in there? Wendtii? I'm converting my high tech over to low-ish tech. Low light, pressurized CO2 (not a high amount of CO2 though, just enough for healthy growth and no algae problems...no glut dosing), and a dimmable LED unit. I've found that high-tech and fast growth is too time consuming for me to enjoy my tank and to just watch.

This thread inspired me to go low tech.
Root tabs and osmocte in substrate. Dose weekly with K, P and glut. Low light, 5 hours a day. Growth is slow but I wanted that.

|Aquatastic||This is my 10g tank. It currently has 2 CFL bulbs (600 lumens and 10 watts each with 6500 K). I dose API LeafZone weekly. I am going to buy dry ferts this upcoming week so I can start learning how to use those.|
