10g planted molly tank

here is my 10 tank that's been up about a year or so. I have an emperor 280 filter on it that keeps the water quality nice, never had an ammonia spike even with the fish having babies. I need to get a bigger tank for them eventually but so far they seem content. There are also 2 small cat fish in there to keep the bottom clean as well as 4 neon tetras.

Upwards of 14 mollies/platies (most of them look like platies to me...), 4 neon tetras, and small catfish (otos i presume?) is a LOT to have in a 10g tank. You really need to get a new tank for those guys.

Edit: In saying that, I'm not reprimanding you, I'm just pointing out that it's not healthy to be in that confined of a space with that many other fish. I used to have at least that many fish in my 10g, and I'm glad i got a bigger tank to compensate.

Don't forget the nerite snail!

But the tank looks good. Things you might consider: sloping the substrate to create the illusion of slope, possibly swapping out the fake wood for real wood. Good luck and keep us updated!

I like the basic plan, but I do agree with above with swaping out with a real wood, maybe something that could hide the HOB
