New 10 gallon Diana Walstad inspired tank.

Hello everybody!

I started my first Walstad style tank the other day. 7/24/2015

I have set it up in a 10 gallon tank. I have a hob style filter running, a submersible heater, and a small air rock.

The plants that I have at the moment are 4 Amazon Compactas, about 10 Crypt Wendtiis, and 1 Anubias Nana. I have Water sprite, Water wysteria, and Pygmy Chain Swords on the way. They will hopefully be here tues or wednesday.

It was my understanding that you could put fish in right away with a walstad, which I waited the 3rd day to do. Now I'm a little nervous that it isnt heavily planted enough for that, so I'm trying to keep a very close eye on the levels in the tank.

At the moment there are 4 long finned black tetras in there...Thats another thing I'm not super happy about. Petstore was selling them cheap, and made it sound quite diff than what they are. I'm hoping that 4 of them in a 10 gallon is going to be alright.

Finally for the pics
