new guy

hello AA

hi, im a newby to aquariums, im 19 and in college. i just started about 2 months ago with a 10g tank which has 3 black mollies,4 zebra danios,and 3 neon tetras. ive been looking at all the wonderful aquascapes and its inspired me to try at a small 10g planted tank. i have a DIY CO2 injection, and a 15w (6500k) light. ive just ordered eco-complete to replace my ugly coarse gravel. im gonna give a shot at starting glosso, even though i read that newbies shouldnt try . also i was going to put cherry shrimp in to eat the algea and was wondering when i should put them into the tank with the plants?

ps: this is my favorite forum to read, im always learning new things!

Welcome to AA!

You're going to need a lot more light to attempt glosso, but on a 10g it won't be that bad.
