Updated 10g planted

Here's my not-so-hot looking planted 10g. Im not sure what plants I have other than java fern, anubias, and HM (baby tears). I decided last night I'm going to be putting some java moss on the driftwood, maybe just go with shrimp (if i can, never had any luck before). We'll see. Any recommendations? Ideas? Thoughts?

Stocking is:
1 Male betta
3 juvie red wag platy (raised from fry)
1 rubber lipped pleco (once he's big enough, headed to the 150g)

Rubberlip Pleco stay small, usually under 4-5in. Mine never went over 3.75in.
I like it, very natural.

Betta + shrimp = fat betta

If you want shrimp with your betta go for ghosts or bamboos. If you're thinking RCS the betta will be fat and sassy.


And I don't think your tank is ugly at all. I really like it. Let me know if you want some rotala indica or ludwigia repens to add some reds to the tank. I'm saving some clippings aside for A1 and can save you some too.

looks nice

My friend got some electric blue tetras for his betta tank. They are so small and fast the betta just ignores them. But, he did eat every shrimp the guy ever put in there.

Nice betta condo man.
