Chris-Indy's 10 Gal tank (second go round) 56K warning... Updated 8/2
Water parameters: unknown at this time
Foxtail something or another..
2 German Rams (females)
3 Golddust Mollies
1 Botia kubotai
3-4 Ghost Shrimp
Nutrafin CO2 canister
Coralife 24" 28watt 50/50 bulb
Penguin hanging filter
My first tank was doing ok, although I noticed a 1" section in a corner where it looks like something hit it. Luckily the silicone held everything together. This tank I'm looking to get a bit more involved with different plants.
I forgot to rinse the substrate when I first put the tank together. Right now the filter is doing a great job at removing the particles. When I went to go get my camera to take pictures, I didn't have any batteries. Hopefully tomorrow I'll remember to stop by and pick some up.
My plans for this tank is to have the Carolina Fanwort conceal the CO2 diffuser and the java moss to engulf a new piece of DF I bought from a lfs. I boiled the heck out of it for at least a good 45+ minutes before putting it in. As far as a foreground plant, I'm not really sure what I want to use. I'm afraid that the dwarf baby tears are going to require too much light. I've tried my hand at the dwarf hair grass and I didn't like the way it looked in the tank. I've wanted to go with Crystal wort but I can't seem to find any here around town.
I used my filter before with the previous tank, but will this filter be ok to use since I'm adding in more plants? Pictures will come asap. Like always, I'm open for suggestions.
