Let's see some more 10 gallons!

I have a 10 gallon fully planted tank at home (sorry no pic yet) which I am still trying to figure out a good layout for. I have revised it and will do so again, shortly. The small size makes it more difficult to find the right plants that don't overcrowd or grow so fast that I have to trim them once a day. I have seen a few good pictures of tanks that small, but I need more ideas! If anyone else has a good, fully planted 10 gallon, let's see them!
-Aphyosemion

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.

I love that tank Buck!

Just one thing, how do you get the Java moss to look like that? What are they tied to?

The smaller ones in the rear right are tied to a boomerang shaped piece of wood, you can see the wood sticking up. The group on the left are actually two long rhyzomes and not tied to anything...they were just stuffed between 2 small pieces of lava rock to keep them from floating . They are attached now though... LOL
