Planted Tank Guru
Lets see where it goes 10 Gallon
So I have had this tank up and running now for ~5 months and to be honest I haven't been doing anything with it at all. I threw some java moss in there, a java fern, a Buddah and some cheap feeder guppies. Later on I decided that I would put in a moss wall (or attempt) and that's half going half not...
Here is the Before:
I decided that it was in need of some re-vamping, so I got to work tonight and started removing, trimming, moving, etc.....
Here is the After:
I took much of the moss on the wood and re-wrapped most of it to the driftwood, I know I want a really mossed out piece and filled in some empty spots.
When I trimmed the wall, I had enough left that I thought was worth salvaging to start a moss rock, I plan on having some more rocks to create small hiding places soon.
Moss Wall after the trim, I may need to re-work/plan if I want to keep a wall in here.
Whisper HOB 15 Gallon rated filter (with SS mesh for inlet)
15W T8 Bulb
Air Stone (more than likely coming out)
Using API Co2 booster until I can work out a CO2 setup (gotta save some pennies)
Plants Currently in Tank
Animals currently in tank
~20 feeder guppies (they will be coming out soon)
~10 ghost shrimp
DIY or Paintball CO2
Working on Moss Wall to get it to fill in
Removal of guppies
I think this will be my first foray into shrimp once I get the guppies out, I will start with ghosties (since they are so cheap) and if I can get a colony of them going (yes I know the confines are small) it will help me figure out my plans for my next tank which I am in the planning stages and would love to do planted/shrimp in.
Let me know what you think, I will be reserving the next few posts to help keep things organized I do like adding pictures
