First Planted Tank! Low tech 10g ***UPDATED 2/9/2012**
So after a period of lurking and few post seeking advice, I've finally come up with an aquascape I'm not too embarrassed by to share. Tank has been running in one form or another since early september. Here are the stats:
Tank: Petsmart 10g
Filter: Aqueon HOB
Lighting: Two Aqueon 50/50 10w mini CFL bulbs in a standard Petsmart hood
Substrate: Super Natural's natural aquarium substrate
Hardscape: Local collected stones and Malaysian driftwood
Ferts: root tabs, cheap liquid micro/macro, no co2
Flora: Vals and ludwigia Repens
Fauna: neon tetra x4, harlequin rasboras x5 , ammano shrimp x2, apple snai, assassin snail, cpo
Below are some photos. Keep in mind the driftwood is stilled leeching tannins(despite two boilings!) causing the tea coloration of the water. Water changes should correct this but it kind of has a cool effect. Please offer any suggestions or advice especially regarding more plant selections. Excited to hear what you all think.
