Pictures of my new 10gal

Some pictures of my new 10 gal freshwater tank I thought I would share.

Right now it has two zebra danio's, two albino cory cats and two ghost shrimp.

Zebra's are hard to get a picture of but the other are easy! Here they are:


One of two ghost shrimp


My two albino cory cats, I love these crazy fish!


Good shot of one of the corys

Funky gravel, it oddly goes well with the albino cories... I like it.
The color pattern on the gravel and cave look like a hippie's nightmare... give's it a unique style.

Thanks for the kind words. The E510 sure does take some good super macro shots. I had it turned down to 3mp and it still looks amazing.

For the record, my girl friend picked the gravel, decor, and plants (glow in the dark). I picked the fish so far. Next fish I think will be a Rainbow shark. Thanks again for your kind words!

no rainbow sharks, they get too big. I like the gravel and decor. Nice cories too. I think i nice bright male betta would look good in there, or a dwarf gourami!

Wouldn't a dwarf gourami get somewhat lost against the background I like the tank the way it is except you might want to add two or three more corys and zebra danios.

Thanks for the responses. I was thinking about the dwarf gourami also. I think it would make a nice addition. I am still cycling my tank so I do not want to add anymore zebra's or cories at the moment. I plan on adding atleast 1 more cory and two more zebras in a few weeks.

I have been doing 20% PWCs like crazy and it seems to be paying off. All my fishies (and shrimp) are doing good! Sure dropping ammonia into your tank for 3 weeks is easier than doing PWCs twice a day but it's a lot more enjoyable to have fish in your tank!

Once again thanks for the kind words. It seems either you hate the color of the gravel or you love it. I was kind of in between then we got the albino cories and I love how they look in it.
