t0p_sh0tta's 10 gallon catastrophy

Well, I guess it's time that I made a journal myself. I have a 10g that has been running for about 2 months now and is well past due for a trim and a complete rescape.

As it sits, it's running 2 14w CFL bulbs, a GLA CO2 setup, Eheim 2213 and Amazonina I.

The tank is currently home to 6 CPDs, 5 pygmy corys, 2 otos and 20 RCS.



Tomorrow, I'll be installing my AHSupply 36w kit and performing a massive trim. I guess it's as good a time as any to add a hardscape.

Current species:
-Tonnia belem
-Blyxa japonica
-Hygrophila polysperma
-Elocharis parvila
-Najas guadalupensis
-Flame moss
-Anubias nana
Anyways, stay tuned.

Well, it's a pretty nice looking catastrophe, as catastrophes go.

lol, I have to stare pretty intently in order to see any fish. The shrimp are all over the place though.

I like the jungle look. You just used the word catastrophe for us to look, didn't you.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

I think your combination of different leaf shapes makes this jungle look work very well. Since the leaves are all different shapes and sizes it doesn't look like a mass of weeds like it easily could, but rather a work of art! Nicely done!
