New kid on the block


Greetings,
I joined this forum today the 29th.
For now due to pet deposit restrictions I have a ten gal tank. Actually I have two but
one is always "under construction" and they are rotated.
I make my own built in bio filters and most of the time think I like the tanks more
than the contents.
My bio filters are evolving and when perfected I shall then move up to what I think
would be my favorite tank size...either a 40L 12x48x16H or 50 12x48x18H.
Can't wait actually because I'm now limited to the smallest plants possible because
of height and few because of lack of floor space in the ten gal. tanks.
Hope to meet other people who dabble in "home made" bio-filters and of
course exchange info about the plants/care of.

home made biofilter?
is that basically an intake sump you make yourself?

10 gallons isnt all that small. you can keep a decent amount of stuff. if you go high light with supplimental CO2, you can keep tons of plants. check out the nano section.
