A low-tech ten gallon sitting on the dinner table. Alternative nickname was "catTV".
This is Toast. She thinks she's helpful. (She's really not.)
This is the tank at the moment.
Substrate: Organic potting mix and pool filter sand. Entertainingly, the pool place guy knew that I was working on an aquarium as soon as I asked for "the smallest amount of sand you can sell me". Unfortunately, that was fifty pounds.
Lighting: At the moment, two 15-watt lights that fit the hood. Once I figure out how much light it really needs, I'll adjust that.
Hardscape: At the moment, a rock that I found outside. I'll pick up some more rocks tomorrow, and I've got an order in for some driftwood.
Plants: At the moment (gosh, I'm saying that a lot), just what I could find at the LFS: an 'assorted anubia', a java fern, and some rotala rotundifolia I was very pleasantly surprised to find. Working on an order for some more.
