Ridiculous low tech 10g

Just rescaped my 10g around it's going to be very low tech from here on out. I got tired of always having to look at how filthy it would get. I'll post a before pic and get an after in a few days I'm still working on it so it's a mess. I'm not even sure if I'm going to like the way it will look.

Before

Been trying to clean it up all day but gravel is a pain to get out of the tank. That's right it's bare bottom and going to be easy to clean from now on. Water is barley starting to clear up.

If its easy clean up you want, bare bottom is the way to go. I used dirted vases, Java fern and Anubias tied to rocks to create my bare bottom sorority tank.


Bad bad cell phone pic but you get the idea.

You probably missed the sorority tank part.

I'm a fan of this tank. I like the bowls and it almost looks like it's a dry tank with house plants in it.

I'm not really sure how I like the tank yet. Maybe more driftwood maybe no driftwood not sure what.

Maybe even put a nano tank in the middle and move the plants to that tank. That would be something different.

Here is a better pic. Plants seem to be doing way better planted in these pots then they were before. I have to trim off some old leaves too.

Tank smells fishy lost two of my guppies I just did a big W/C it mixed up what ever gravel I didn't take out and is now a tea bag color. I'm waiting for the filter to clear up the water now. I'm guessing that it's going through a mini cycle with the ammonia from the dead fish. I did add a fish a while back and I'm thinking this is the reason this happened. A guy can't ever catch a break.
