Final pic of this tank:

A work in progress: Organic choice with crushed clay pot capped with play sand, Rocks are from my back yard (boiled), Small drift wood from established tank, Crypts, marimos and pennywort. No fauna for about another week.

Looks good. Wow, $1/gallon sale.. awesome. Wish they had it at Petsmart in Vancouver area. I got my 10gallon tank at petsmart two months ago for $28+12% tax.

Great start! Beware you will probably get bored with the 10G and want to upgrade.

What are the lights?

All those crypts came from a single potted plant raised with 1 LED clip on and in regular gravel.
