Cool Diesel's 10g Mud Tank Journal

Hi all,

As I am new here, I figured I would post my 10g mud tank that I just set up.

Please see my other thread for my 140g once it gets repaired

https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ta...ml#post1564497

Ok, so here are a couple pics to start.





The angels are only temporary in this tank until my larger tank is repaired as I want to set this tank up dedicated to shrimp.

All criticism is welcome as this is all new to me. I was going for something along the lines of a "stumpy" aquascape and scale it down to the tank.

Thanks!

Looks good man. I normally don't like the white sand, but it is growing on me.

Got a plant and spec list by any chance?

Still throwing around ideas in my head. May do a tree aquascape as it intrigues me Indecisive right now lol.

Plant list is as follows for now, at least I think:

Taxiphyllum ferriei (Weeping Moss)
Cabomba furcata(Red Cabomba)
Hygrophila difformis (Wisteria)
Dwarf Bonsai
Mayaca fluviatilis
Hygro sp. Tiger

Are you doing anything for CO2 until you do that?

If all else fails, ask them. I posted a pic of the package in my journal if you are interested. It looks really healthy. I think it is going to be worth the 9 bucks in the long run.
