10g SS CRS tank (update, sort of, 2-13-11)

This is my other 10g tank which for the time being is just growing out plants to supply my 55g with when it is set up. At the time this one is in a spot where i can't take pictures of it, but it looks nothing like the first pic anymore. The plants are literally coming out of the top of the tank. It will eventually have manzanita wood
