Just wanted to share my new 10g project.
I set the tank up on October 10, so its been going a month now.
10g AGA tank
AGA incandescent hood with 2 20w screw-in compact fluorescent bulbs (*now 55w of compact fluorescent)
ADA Aquasoil Amazonia (2x 3L bags)
diffused by glass diffusor
Cheap Cascade HOB
filter with a lovely blue sponge over the intake.
50w Stealth heater
9 Celestial Pearl Danios ranging in size from 1/2" to 3/4".
HC, Baby Tears, Rotala rotundifolia, Ludwigia arcuata, Singapore moss, Pogostemon stellatus, Riccia, Dwarf Hairgrass, Anubias nana 'petite'
Here is a photo of the tank, taken last week (need to take a new one):
The bulbs are 6500K, which I thought would be good, but I don't love the color.....
Also, the blue sponge sticks out like a sore thumb.....I have an older photo where I photoshopped it out......will probably do that on future photos.
Here is a picture taken on 10/17, so you can see the growth.
My camera is crappy, so the pictures aren't very good, but hopefully I can get some better, clearer shots soon.
Riccia pearling nicely
(best pic I've gotten of one of the fish)
I have not been ablet to get any good shots of the CPDs because of a number of reasons.
They are really shy, so it takes patience to wait for them to come out of the plants to get a pic. I am not patient though.
My camera is also not good at all and since the fish are so small, I really need something with better macro abilities (hoping for Christmas!).
I will get some updated pictures soon and post them as well. I will be taking the P. stellatus stems out soon. I realize they are too large for a 10g, but I had them trimmed from my 29g and stuck them in to fill the space.
I hope to add some Red Cherry Shrimp soon and that will be the finally stocking addtion.
Thanks for looking!
