Finally got it set up with the new flourite. No more red gravel! I just have it planted with som extra stuff I had for now. I am thinking of doing just crypts and anubias for this tank. Mainly small species. Also I want a different piece of driftwood if I can find one. Anyone have any plant suggestions? I am probably going to put some dwarf rasboras and maybe pygmy gouramis in the tank.

TIA

It looks nice now for a temporary setup. Whats the lighting on the tank? It seems a bit dim in the corners and such. But the tank looks good for a start, keep us updated it sounds like it will turn out nice.

Lighting at the moment is two 15 watt incadescents. I am going to replace them with screw in compact flourescents and see how the tank does. If I still dont like it I will get an AHSupply kit for it.

Where did you get your lights cactusdoug? I know AHSupply is probably the best route but I am trying to save money for the co2 for my 75 gallon at the moment and figured I could get by with screw ins for now.

Well I redid the ten gallon once more. Took everything out and added all new plants (not done yet) and pygmy cories, purple neon tetras, and dicrossis filamentosa. Pictures will come when I can post them....unable to at this point i guess because of a site bug??

Kevin,

That sounds like a great little tank. What plants did you decide to go with? I'm setting up a 10g with A. coffeefolia and some Crypts as an Apisto breeder and would like to see how you did yours.

Best,
Phil

Im sorry not cilatia, lutea. And I dont know the name of the last one... Thats it for now untill my LFS gets some more or I order some more. I pretty much want to do all crypts and anubias if possible. Anyone else having trouble posting pics?

I, too, have trouble posting pics, but that's because I'm not a computer nerd.

Your tank looks to be on the low side, I hope you can get lighting upgraded fast on it. Good luck,.

The first pic you see is old and outdated. Lighting has been upgraded and all plants have been replaced. Maybe after this weekends upgrade I'll be able to post again. :)
