My son's planted 10G


I just wanted to put this in the right thread.

So I started my first planted tank earlier this year, it was January I believe and I decided to do it in my son's room in his own tank.

I started out with Flora maxx capped with black Tahitian sand, I put in a few top fin bulbs and went from there.

Next I got some free stems and plants from a fellow forum member to help me out (Beginragnarok), and after those plants took off I got hooked!

Next I went to Petsmart and got a baby amazon sword to grow for my bigger tank.

I then received some more plants as a trade for some fry, and got a manzanita driftwood covered in Christmas moss from fellow member sumer.

I then picked up some give aways from fellow member Catherine, including some more driftwood that I tied java fern to.

And that brings us to the tank today, the following are pictures of the progress along the way.

Thanks, I still have to tear it down this weekend to actually scape it.

Right now it's just my plant holding tank so I just plant wherever there's room, but now I set up another tank for that purpose, so I have to make this one look nice now.
