10g islands

Started this tank on Nov 5, figured I'd start a tank journal for kicks. As for equipment I have:

Penguin 100 filter
Some small heater for a 15 gal, I think tetra makes it
Two sprial 60 watt bulbs

I'm dosing leaf zone once a week, that's my only certs

Flora:
Java moss
Hairgrass
Java fern
Some little plant I forgot the name of. It got trampled by my last fish and its just recently started growing so its teeny tiny

Fauna:
3 Cory cats
A small angel fish
A small bristlenise pleco
And one apple snail who went from the size of a pea to the size of a gumball since I started this

The first photo is right after I planted it on the 5th

The second is from the 21st. So 2 and a half weeks give or take. Replaced a rock with wood and more java moss, cause you can never have enough lol also my java fern has new little shoots on the end of its leaves. Probably gonna put those behind the smaller piece of wood

I had planned it to have two circles of hairgrass under each piece of wood, but the hairgrass is growing at a glacial pace

Nice tank, what kind of substrate are you using?
