My 10g revamped!
 
I made some major changes to my original 10g so I figured it is now time to start a new thread!

Specs:
10g basic tank
Finnex Planted + 20"
ZooMed 501 Turtle Clean
Petco heater set to hold 76 degrees

Plants:
Wisteria, corkscrew val, crypt beckettii (when it decides to come back from its melt) hygrophila polysperma, needle leaf java fern, anubias, frogbit, duckweed, dwarf water lettuce

Fauna: 2 platies, one zebra nerite (will work up to 6 platies)

added 1/4 tsp of baking soda (sodium bicarb. 100%) to raise kH to 2-3 pH to 7.2

(1.5 hours later: fish are much more active, eating fungus off of the driftwood and swimming)

Platies are doing well. I'm very happy with them. I plan on adding two more on Monday, working up to a total of six eventually.

Added a new platy and a horned nerite today! I wasn't planning on adding till Monday but I couldn't pass up this peppermint platy.

Here is an okay picture of the red wagtail. These guys are hard to catch. The blue mickey mouse hates the camera.

crypts are slowly coming back to life and I'm seeing some good growth in the wisteria and the ludwigia repens arcuata
