10 gallon planted


I started with a 12 "cube but made a few mistakes when choosing plants for it, so I started doing research on what would be better choices and ran across a tank that inspired me to go this route i made a few changes to the one I saw to get to this point. I have led spot lights ordered for it and a few more plants
I had to modify the tidal 55 intake tube to make it short enough to work and it also has the sun sun small canister filter on it.

Good start, cant wait to see it fill in. Are you doing anything extra to the half dome/cave? It would look pretty cool with some moss covering the top

Added anubias pagolino to the wood, microsword and cryptocoryne tonkinesis today.
Waiting on anubias nana petite to finish off the wood.
I may add something to the top of the cave later on once I see how the cryptocoryne parva growes in and I see how much it covers it.

Had to change the lighting from 1t8 plant grow bulb and 2 20 wattt led spot lights to a single 20 watt spot light on from 6pm to midnight due to green spot algie and the edges of the anubias nana leaves starting to turn black

never did see any pleco eggs hatch, I think the mystery snails may have got the eggs.
I got a picture of my dwarf blue crayfish, it was really blue till it molted the first time

Bump:
the pecock moss has really been growing lately this is the part closest to the top of the water and it catches food so the shrimp and snails take advantage of it ,

The 10 gallon is still going strong. Just wanted to share a picture of my 2 gallon fish bowl that I'm waiting on the parts for my co2 system that will be going on it.
What do you think? https://pin.it/lqoixzhexdf6gv
