Definitely do not move the rock. Aside from hiding the cut end of the wood, there is a very good balance having it where it is. There is a lengthening of the overall tank achieved by this placement in conjunction with the wood.
The Mi Oya will get big as well which is why I had it on the back. The Tropica will probably get big as well which is why it I had it in the middle/back.
Now the Nevillii (or willisii) there are some species that stay small and I am/was hoping this would be the case with mine. :/ Posted via Mobile Device
Thanx Jes but you know I have never *really* been happy with my tanks or how they look. I could setup the best tank ever period and still think something was *missing*!
The more I think about it the more I think I am going to leave things where they are and plant the new plants around according to where the hardscape is. I *might* still move that crypt in front to the left and either A. plant the C. Nevillii or *maybe* take my Dwarf Sagittaria from my 29 and put it there and put the C. Nevillii where the Dwarf Sagittaria was. Posted via Mobile Device
Sounds good to me! I know, I'm the same way. . .
And it does get tricky with smaller tanks - not enough room for changes! I really like your little tank, glad that you're going to leave the hard-scape as it is, and can't wait to see those lil' plants grow under your wet green thumb, lol!
So today I "stepped-up" in the world of water changes as I finally got a water changer at Petsmart (Like a Python). I have been thinking about getting one for awhile and once my wife found out what they were/are she demanded me to get one as then them "Blasted totes" would go bye-bye!! LoL So yeah I picked one up today along with a new Test kit as mine is 2 years old! O_o Posted via Mobile Device
*drools* I'm jealous again! You'll have to let me know how much you love it! I've been considering trading in my 'blasted totes,' too. . . only my husband had to point out that I could potentially create even MORE of a mess with a Python ;)
I got a Python when I got my bigger tank.
I'm a little disappointed with the strength of the suction, but refilling is now the easiest thing ever.
I may start to use my standard syphon for spot cleaning and use the python for volume removal.
The tank looks good, give the plants a chance to fill in and it will look great.
There is really only one tank that I need to use the actual siphoning part of the python and the rest I probably will still use a regular siphon and a tote LoL and I even told my wife this as I was buying it as I told her I wouldn't use the siphon on all of them as I didn't want to waste more water then I had too!
So I am thinking of adding more fish to this tank.
I really like Boraras Urophthalmoides and Corydoras pygmaeus. The only I have a question about is each of those species recommend having around 10 to a group. That would put the tank having a total of 23 fish in the end. Would that be too much for a 10 gallon??? Posted via Mobile Device
