Ganyon's 10 gallon tank.

I have had a few planted tanks a few years back, but had to take them down. Well, i finally got a new 10 gallon in April. So far, i haven't planted it a lot, but plan on it.

Fish
3 Bumblebee platies
3 swordtails
1 apple snail
4 ghost shrimp

Plants
Anubias
Java fern

Substrate
Petco black sand (More like small pebbles)

Lighting
2 curly bulbs ( equals 3wpg)

awe I bred platys like that for a while, I had TONS of them after a little while. I would bring them in and get store credit at my LFS which turned into buying new fish and kept my hobby growing.

Went to petco today and actually found a few plants. I got a water primrose, a microvsword, and a pot labeled assorted crypt. All of the plants look great and algae free.


The assorted crypt


Assorted crypt again.

Found a baby swimming around the tank. All 12 babies were accounted for in the breeder. Wonder where this guy came from.

Update. I've been pumping co2 for 4-5 days now. All the plants are standing straight up and i've noticed growth on the water primrose.
