I've dabbled around with tanks before, but saw the planted tanks and thought id give it a try. My girlfriend gave me her old tank. She said it was 10 gallon but I think its closer to 7.5 (based on the dimensions and my math). Right now I havnt put fish in yet, and I just added a background plant to get it set up. Its been going for about a week now. Low cost was my main goal.
Let me know what you think. Im afraid the small foreground plants arnt doing so well but we will see as things keep going. I also have some brown algae (diatoms thanks to on here) that im hoping will go away as it goes on.
7.5 gallon round edge tank, 2 screw in CFL bulbs in orchard clip on hoods, power10 filter, and small heater, flourite base
Anyway, here are the pics
The set up
and now, its a bit cloudy in the pics since i just moved the flourite around.
What is this plant. It has small pink flowers. and fine leaves
Anyway, i hope to learn a lot on here. Any criticism will be well recieved
