The 10 gallon guppy jungle
This is my new 10 gallon tank. I seeded it with some media from my old tank. excuse the random rock I put it in the tank for the goby to clean)

Tank Specs:
The tank is a standard 10 gallon
2 15 watt CFL lights in standard hood
1 filter (not sure of brand)
50 watt heater
Organic miracle grow capped with play sand

mother plant of crpyt wendtii "bronze"
dwarf sag
ludwigia repens

1 african rock goby
1 crs shrimp
and soon I will hopefully get some show german red snakeskin guppies :)

Thanks for looking.

Heres a pic of the mother crypt
and one of the goby

Does anyone have any recommendations for the tank?

Putting in any background plants? Jungle val or Rotala or Ludwigia maybe!

Alright. Thanks. Next monday Da Plant Man is sending me a huge plant package so I might trow some plants in this tank depending on what he sends me :) IM also thinking of putting a carpeting plant in here? opinions?

@marko@ 03-14-2012 02:26 PM

its a small tank, the best carpets for a tank that size would be HC, or E. belem

Well I put the bag in the water when I got the shrimp and i hadn't even put any water in the bag when the smaller shrimp died :( So now I only have one shrimp. ill hopefully get more soon. but theyre so expensive at the fish store
What grade is this?

Venturing into CRS is risky, I would say that they are A,B grade.

Got 9 cherry shrimp yesterday! pics will come later :)

You have a good tank going here. I think I would add some on the right side. The one plant looks lonely.

akdylpickles 04-01-2012 07:37 PM

Yeah I'm trying to figure out a good foreground plant that doesn't need co2. Options?
