My slow start 10G

Looong time lurker here 1st time poster, finally though I'd share my humble 10. I bought 2 10G tanks last year bought lots of supplies and never actually set anything up until now

standard 10G AGA
20" finnex stingray and 1 finnex clip on LED
Hydor nano circulator
playsand w/ root tabs
need a mag scraper as seen on the pics

I just bought some plants Crypt Parva, Lutea and Hydrocotle Tripartita
alot of melt but i expected that. the tripartita is spreading already which is promising. Eventually i'll add some moss for the driftwood plus anubias petite and something for the background ??

as for fauna still undecided...

I really like the hardscaping you have in there. It's going to look good!
Here is a thread on nano background plants that may give you some good ideas...

Bumping this thread for a small update.
-added java fern 'tropica'
-added unknown purple'ish stem that has grown roots in unwanted places quite an eye sore.
-added anubias 'nana'
-crypts are all alive slowly seeing new growth
-sp. Japan is crazy I tried to take an overhead shot to show growth spread.

I also just installed a Fluval 88g c02 kit seems interesting going to give it a shot.

No real algae to speak of yet. still no fauna yet
