Default New journal 10 gallon... NPT Maybe walstad..

So I traded a member here for this tank..

Tank is in great condition... Argh I hate setting new tanks so much work! haha
but I figure its time to upgrade from my nanos because I got tired of trying to scape in such a small space...

Anyways I added MGPS.. to the bottom layed it with 1-2" of 15% black sand, and the rest Fluval plant stratum


Deciding what this tank is gonna be... hmm

Adding pictures / more updates in a bit

*edit* here's pic I need to add plants..

Try gravel as a cap this time. Why not experiment the differences? I am curious of the differences

Was gonna try gravel but I hate the look of it.. I prefer something more fine.. so Plant stratum is light small pebbles.. and is something I never used to cap before... my main tank I used fluorite.. so I am testing this

Update:



Ignore the spawning mop, and extra rocks and floating plants..

Just needed some hiding places...

As you can see i moved the dwarf hairgrass, added some glosso in its place. the glosso on the right is spreading fast

Haven't had time to do maintenance on this tank so it looks messy and has alot of algae...

Just a small update of how it looks!
