Default And so it begins...

So this is a ten gallon tank. Planning on have red cherry shrimp in it at some point( either this or my 5) well let's get to it
The plants I have are bacopa Carolinia back, dwarf hairgrass in front Anubis afazelli on driftwood and java fern on driftwood as well. And I. The back of the driftwood was a tiny piece of java moss when I bought it and now it is a lot bigger than it was!
Substrate is just black sand
Hob filter
Aqueon plant food fert
And 2 10 watt bulbs that are both 6500k
DIY Co2
And that's about it. Started about a month ago and have just added plants slower than I wanted but am just waiting for the to grow out now.
