Cool Duy's 10 Gallon NPT :)

Current FTS:

Hello, I'm a new member here so I think ya'll deserve a little introduction. I'm a Sophomore college student at OSU, and I've always been a huge fan of the hobby. I think my dad is to blame for that. He taught me betta breeding when I was younger, and during my high school years I had two planted aquariums of my own. Sadly, they were abandoned once I moved away for college. It's been two years since then, and I've recently re-discovered my passion for planted aquaria and decided to start a small 10G tank.

Plan: Dry Start Method for ~ 1-2 month(s) then flood once root system is established.

Livestock: Clown killifish w/ RCS.
*My hope is that the clown killies will breed and the RCS won't eat the fertilized eggs. Can anyone confirm this to be possible for me?

Plants: Mostly undecided. But so far there's:
- C. Parva (or what I believe is it, was labeled
assorted asian crypts" at local petco.) If possible can someone confirm?

-Ludwigia repens (Same situation with C. Parva, ID?)

-Java fern. I found a piece of hardened clay at the beach once, and when we had a bonfire we threw it into the embers; it baked the clay a nice deep red with awesome cracks and texture. It was awesome, so I attached it to the fern as a base.

The tank has only been set-up today, and there is a massive shortage of plants. I'm waiting to find a nice sale package or better yet, a RAOK, from a member here because you all have such nice quality tanks and plants . If anyone has such a kind offer and hooks me up for some more plants at a budget, PM me and let's be friends!

Miracle Grow Organic capped with Petco black sand.

12 DIY LED kit from aquastyleonline.com (super fast shipping, suprised me).

2x Blue, 2x Red, 2x Cyan(Green) 6x White. I tried to complete the light spectrum. Can someone comment if this is unnecessary or not, because the light blends to a bright violet white, and if it's unnecessary I'll switch more white in the array.

DIY 8" tall stand just because.



I hope I didn't bore you. Please critique and comment, I find it a joy to read every comment.
