My low tech tank I want to replicate kinda a mix between a pond and stream bottom. I am open to ideas for other plants and anything else. Also thinking about fish that look like minnows that will go with ghost shrimp.


Plants:
Narrow Leaf Chain Sword
Java Moss
Dwarf Hair Grass
Riccia
Duck Weed

Inhabitans:
Ghost Shrimp
Snails (Ghost Shrimp love to eat these.)

Substrate:
Some pea gravel mixture.
With some summit granite chunks.

Equipment:
10g aquarium
10g hood modified with two 26watt compact flourecent lights
Whisper 1 filter
20lb Aluminum CO2 tank with Western Enterprises regulator and cheap needle valve
Some sort of strange idea I had to get CO2 in the water it works and I get pearling and increased growth.

Aquariums should smell like a pond. Just like where the fish come from.
