Default 10g rock only ideas?

Empty 10g, tons of rock, any ideas what to do?

Already have planted tanks. Looking for a change. Thinking all rock, maybe branches. But what fish?

Hill stream bed starting at the very top, cascading down +1-2 loaches? Or a frog.

Rocks + water + filter
That's the challenge.

Be careful about putting lots of rocks in your 10g, your glass might break.You can put a styrofoam sheet on the bottom, substrate and rocks on top and you are safe to go

With tempered glass you don't have to worry too much about the rocks.

I have egg crating on hand. I like the river stream idea. I just need to get my creative juices flowing now.

you could use rocks that keep your pH and hardness up, and set up a shell dweller tank. i had a set up with a trio of multis, and they were great fish.

I've decided. This will be Japanese trapdoor breeding tank. I laid down egg crate for the rocks. Trying to design a waterfall.

That's great news. Can't wait to see what you come up with as far as hardscape.
