New 10g Setup (Returning Fishkeeper)


Greetings everyone! Just wanted to share my current setup.

It doesn't have any inhabitants yet, I am still studying and collecting more knowledge on who I want in this tank

I am satisfied on what I have as far as the mid and background however, I am having second thoughts about the foreground. I am thinking about letting my Java Moss Carpet grow out (give it a month) and if I don't like the way it looks (post trimming and maintenance) I may consider Dwarf Hairgrass as a foreground.

Any and all opinions are welcome.

Note: I have a pressurized C02 system however I am currently trying to figure out where to put the diffuser in the tank. I was thinking maybe in the back next to the heater and filter but I'm not sure. I don't want the diffuser to take away from the appearance of the tank by being out in the open, however I want to maximize the efficiency of the C02. Oh, also I love seeing the diffuser and bubble counter work....its odd I know. Thoughts?

Welcome back to the hobby!

If you decide to keep that huge java moss carpet, it'll be good for shrimp and or fish/shrimp breeding! So you have those options too!

I like watching the diffuser work as well! I have mine underneath the output flow of my aquaclear so it gets more circulation.


BTW nice IT books haha!

Looks great! What light do you use? I can't tell from the picture on my iPhone.

I use a Finnex Planted+ 7000k Red/White/Blue LED Light.

Perfect for low-medium light plants. 10 gallon tanks with this light will get a PAR value around 50-65 with 1"-2" substrate). From what I understand if you use this light with C02, fert substrate or root tabs, and supplemental ferts (Flourish etc), high light plants are possible.
