My Tank!

Iím a member of Method's Classroom As of right now I have cycled my tank and I trying my best to keep going!
Here is a list of the current Equipment and living things I have in my 10 gallon tank:
Safe T Sorb substrate
In my AquaClear 20 filter I have a sponge and filter floss
Aqueon Heater
Air pump Filter
Cryptocoryne
Java Moss
Anubias
Java Fern
Dwarf Water Lettuce
Dwarf Sagittaria
Jungle Val
Bacopa
Jade Pothos in my filter
School of ten Mummichogs
I know this is not enough compared to the tanks that I have seen. Some plants I wish to add to that list is Bolbitis, Water sprite, and a few more fish and maybe a waterfall.

Everything sounds good. Can you post some pics? Whenever you get the chance that is.

I'll try to get some better pictures of the mummichogs. That's a cool little local killifish that I trapped out of the Chesapeake. I dosed them with Panacur to try to get rid of any parasites. I still won't let them near any of our tropical fish any time soon...

It's way cool that you got your hands on local fish! Chesapeake Bay dot-net is one site that might help you find more to add to your tank, in their field guide section. The same site has a guide to local aquatic plants that you could take a look at. Your local university library is another great resource of information.

Good luck with your tank!

Edit: Because the site is "chesapeakebay" the filter thinks it's "ebay" and won't let me post links. I'm sure you can find it with some googling.

I just wanna have some happy fish and some happy plants.

These mummichogs are pigs. They eat everything, including our excess pond snails. But they don't ever stop moving. Here's a pic.

I had never heard of mummichogs. Do they get very big? The tank is looking good. Nice healthy plants.

These guys are full-grown at about 3 inches. They're killifish that are native to brackish water all along the eastern seaboard of the US. I live a little closer to the Chesapeake Bay than the school where I teach. I can walk down to a local beach and catch these fish, literally, by the bucketful. They are used as bait around here, but they're quite nice in a tank.
