Hello all. I just wanted to share my newest tank, a regular 10 gal setup that I've had running since the 12th. This tank is replacing my old 5 gal, so the filter just transferred over, same bio-load, same substrate, no cycle (and I've been testing everyday. woohoo!) So I guess I'll show pics and then put the specs after. Please, comment and (constructively) criticize. I am here to learn
(i really love that "root-y" looking piece of wood)
That last one's a pic of my dwarf puffer Frank G. Chesterton, although upon further observation, I am fairly certain that Frank is, in fact, Francine. Oh well
So the specs:
Run-of-the-mill hob filter, millenium, I think
50w Whisper heater
2 15w cf bulbs, I think they're 6500k?
Java Fern (just a little bit)
Anacharis (just for now to help with the uptake of excess ammonia etc)
Crypts (Bronze wendetti, green gecko?, one other kind)
1 dwarf puffer
1 african dwarf frog (he's like 4 years old now
One note, the pvc pipe I have sitting in the middle of the tank is really ugly, but my animals really like to hide out in there. I attempted to silicone some sand on it (and that was a real party, let me tell you) but most of it ended up falling apart. I would like to be able to leave it in there, but only if I could make it less visually distracting. Any ideas?
Thanks so much for reading my ramblings
Please leave any ideas, comments, or criticism that you have.
PS - Please excuse the quality of the photos, I didn't realize how much glare there was at the time I took them, but I'll probably be taking more pics within the next week or so, so please bear with me.
