I decided to go ahead and setup a 10 gallon, and decided to start a small log for anyone who is interested, and and so you can help me
. This is a continuation of this thread: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...k-ideas-74412/
This will be my last tank for a least a year until I move into a bigger place. It will either stick some ember tetras, dwarf rasbora and pygmy cories or 3 dwarf puffers. Have not decided yet, and it will depend on what I find locallly.
I painted the back of the tank black. It came out OK. It is a play sand substrate, I washed it for about 2 hours, it got really dirty once I filled the tank so I will be doing extra water changes this week.
It will be planted. Have not decided what will go in it, I will take what I can from other tanks.
I have a life glo bulb T-8 bulb and I will be using a sponge filter, which I did not get yet.
Here is a pic so far. THe water is so cloudy, and I need to remove a little sand. I hope the table it is on is OK. It is an Ikea table. It in not solid wood, but it is way stronger than particle board. Everything is level, and I have even sat on the desk before and did not feel any bowing under me.
