Looks good. Wow, $1/gallon sale.. awesome. Wish they had it at Petsmart in Vancouver area. I got my 10gallon tank at petsmart two months ago for $28+12% tax.

Great start! Beware you will probably get bored with the 10G and want to upgrade.

What are the lights?

All those crypts came from a single potted plant raised with 1 LED clip on and in regular gravel.
