Baby steps (10g and 45g)

I had fishtanks off and on since I was a kid and finally (with the help of you guys) got back into about a year ago. I had an old 10g with the affectionately titled clown-puke that I tried to grow some plants in. After fiddling with wrong color spectrums, I found out about diy co2 and dosing the ferts (among other things).

So the 10g is much the same as it was 2 years ago, just now it has plants growing in it.

I just bought a 45g the other day to keep my spotted bass and bluegill. I decided on using pool filter sand and really wanted to create a "ode" to the bottom of a pond.

So for what its worth, here they are.

I know my tanks look like a child put them together, but hopefully one day I will have the space and time to do one right.

10g:



basic tropical.

Two of: Cherry barbs, Black Skirts, Neons, Ghost Shrimp, and Nerite snails. 3 heteromorphas
Water wisteria, "Dwarf" amazon sword, dwarf lilly, aponogeton

45g:





Spotted bass, bluegill and a crawdad.

thats a nice lily and one beautiful bass! Keep it up, you will only get better from here.

Heres an idea that might be nice. take it or leave it... Since the bass, gill, and mud bug are all natives you could make the entire tank native themed, plants and all. This will make it look even more like an ode of a pond
