OK here is the ten gallon I setup last night. I think I am going to add more gravel to the left side. Oh and this is just a temporary place on top of my kitchen table.

Equipment:
50/50 fluorite
40 watts screw in PC bulbs. the long loop ones
HOB filter

Plants: I am going to add as of right now.

Asian Ambulia
Hydro Croymbosa
Hydro Green
Limnophila aromatic
Red Ozlet
Crypt wenditt red
erect moss

OK so I have heard both that I can and cannot certain plants. So I am going to see just what will grow under these lights. All comments are welcome.

Hi

This of piece driftwood is really nice I have found 4 different ways to place it and each way is VERY different so much so that it is like I have four different pieces.

Two things I should have mentioned earlier is that it will have the hagen ladder system with diy mixture and the other is that I had the fluorite in a box for a couple months before I used it on this tank and it dried out. On my 29 gallon it took me two hours too wash one bag of fluorite but scence this one dried out 15 min too wash and as you seen there was no red color to the water. IF YOU HAVE THE TIME TO LET FLUORITE DRY DO IT. Also would like to get my hands on some glosso. So if any one wants to donate some i will accept.

Update and question

Hi just a single PIC up date but I do have question what kind of fish can I put in this tank with 2 claw frogs????? I really don't have a choice if the frogs go in or not because I am getting rid of there 3 gallon and moving them to the ten. They are my son's and his mother's frogs. I had Wild guppies in the 3 gallon but while I was gone they went to they store and bought them and my guppies were gone before I got home. So now they are here to stay. Any ideas?

Are you sure about the idea? I find it amusing if frogs, plants and fish can work well together in a 10 gal tank. You better fill that tank with cherry shrimp or tiny fish like guppy or several neons. Frogs better go into a different tank. Some frogs can even eat the size of themselves...

Update And Pearling!!!!!!!!!!!

OK the night before last I planted the tank dosed the tank with:

1 ml flourish comprehensive
5 ml flourish excel

And started up the hagen Co2 ladder with a diy mix and then added the frogs.
The next morning I turned on the lights and not 30 min after them on the plants began to pearl. So IM thinking that maybe some air was trapped under the leaves so I gave all the plants a good shake to get rid of the air and not 30 min later it was back under all my plants. This is great if I got these results on day one I cant wait till after the tank grows in. Oh and at one point the nana had a single bubble sheet and they kept pearling like this untill i truned off the lights. OK on to some PICS.
