Hello guys! This has been one project that took quite a lot of time, but since now that I have something close to being what is called a tank I'll start a journal.
Tank: 10 Gallon
Filter: Top Fin 10
CO2: DIY Yeast into the intake of an internal filter
Rocks: Zebra Rock
Plants: Hairgrass & HC
Inhabitants: Red Cherry Shrimp (as of currently)
[Tank after I put the rocks in. Water was pretty cloudy]
[My friend Luis gave me a whole bunch of hairgrass and I was able to plant them in the back as the background plants. I haven't trimmed or pruned them because I wanted to give them a chance to grow before I tried to trim. Thanks Luis!
Also, the plants floating up top are rotala rotundifolia. The store owner of the fish store I went to said that it would help absorb the excess nutrients in the tank to reduce algae. ]
[Red cherry shrimps were also provided by Luis! One of them is for sure berried and I can't wait for them to come out and fill up my tank!]
That's all I have for now. I hope you guys can provide me some suggestions on what I should do and ideas on how I can limit the amount of algae I get. Please feel free to give me any suggestions whatsoever!
This hobby is pretty expensive! The project is still incomplete and I have no money left.
But I love it so I will try my very best to make it a nice place for my plants to grow and the creatures in it to live.
