10 G low tech with stump (first planted tank)

This setup was given to me for free. I have no experience with planted tanks.


-Standard 10 g Aqueon kit
-15w 8000k light
-Tetra Whisper EX20 HOB using standard carbon cartridges.
-Eco-Complete substrate

Stumpy will be placed in the back left corner. He's soaking in a bucket out of tap water treated with Prime. I'm not sure what kind of wood it is, it came from someplace in Cali. I would like if I could get a steep slope under it and have anubias round the base. Eventually try to get some moss on it too.

On the right I would really like to use the sword I have in the back. Then some shorter carpet up front.

One issue with the slope is my filter being so low.

Another issue is I only know the names of three of my plants.






So it was set up just with water for about a week. Then added Eco. Another week added the plants.

I would like to get some shrimp and a few small fish.

Looking forward to the evolution of this tank and your suggestions.
