Default The 10 gallon guppy jungle

This is my new 10 gallon tank. I seeded it with some media from my old tank.
(please 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

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



Fish:
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

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

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