Next go at it. 10 gallon planted tank. Let's see where it takes me
I had a previous tank journal about 4-5 years ago. I had started a 10 gallon planted tank with the hopes of starting a 20 gallon long planted tank (but wound up starting a planted fluval edge instead of the long).
Long story short, I was accepted into nurse anesthesia school and I moved to Florida from Colorado and had to break down all the tanks and move. When in Florida I set up the edge as a reef tank and had that for 3 years while I was in school. Graduated with my masters in nursing woth a concentration in anesthesia and I passed boards to make me a nurse anesthetist. Moved again and broke down the reef tank. I've always loved planted tanks, so I'm back...
I bought a 10 gallon standard tank from petco to put on my desk. Found 3 LFS close to where I work and started to look around. Great selection of product!
10 gallon aqueon tank and aqueon lid
Finnex fuge ray light
Aqueon pro50 heater
Fluval stratum substrate
Seachem onyx sand
Rinsed the substrates out and added them to the tank. Positioned my rocks and driftwood and started soaking the driftwood. I weighted it down with a heavier seiryu stone that I will remove soon.
I let it run for about 48 hours to make sure everything way good. The LFS had some great looking small rasboras that I'm going to use to cycle the tank. When I bought them, the guy gabe me some filter water to help get the cycle going and I got the API quick start, stress coat, and stress zyme and dosed it last night. The water is still a little cloudy, but it's all good.
Trying to take it slow and do it right.
My plan for the plants are some blood vomit up front in the center, sagitaria sublata (sp?) front left, rotala in the back corners to hide the filter and heater, anubis nana petitis secured to the driftwood to give it a tree appearance.
My plan for the fish is to add cory's (not sure which species) and more rasboras. 2 otto's, maybe a small pleco (not sure about this one yet), and hopefully celestial pearl danios if the bioload isn't TOO high.
Thanks for looking. I'll add more pictures later
