Picked up a free marineland 10g last week and set it up today. found some slate for 0.20 lb locally and siliconed the 3 rocks few days ago onto thin plexiglass so they would stand up. added used ecocomplete and estes blk rocks about half and half. put on a used filter from another tank and ill add some guppys in 2 days to get the cycle jump started.
using 2 15watt spiral bulbs in the hood and will put on diy co2 in 1-2 days once the plants are in. figure ill use some java ferns,crypts and moss till i get some other plants. any thoughts on plants?
