So lets say I have 2 standard 10 gallon aquariums that are sitting around not being used. If I wanted to turn at least one of them into a planted tank, what might be some good ideas? What about an Iwagumi? I'm not sure the dimensions are good for that though. What about ideas for a low tech setup? I'm mainly just looking for ideas right now. As of right now I don't have lighting, at least not a long term lighting solution, and I have a few aquaclear HOB filters sitting around not being used so I'm pretty much open to any ideas.
I have a 30 gallon high tech/high maintenance tank, so something a little lower maintenance would be ideal, but any ideas/suggestions are welcome.
