Another update, I thought I'd show everyone what it looks like after everything I did to it. i ended up with more Java ferns then I though! Some had propagated and formed more plants. Some I've set up to rocks, others I'm attempting the gravel method.Still without proper lghting, but I'll be fixing that tomorrow.(Hopefully)

On another note: anyone know where I could find timed lights? or make them even.

Sorry for the shoddy lighting in the photo btw!I'll also fire up a picture when all the murkiness goes away.

You can just buy a timer that plugs into the outlet, and you plug your light into it. That's what I do.

Really? That's excellent! I suppose they'd be at a local hardware store?

Or an extension cord with timer outlets but they are much more expensive I would think than the wall outlet timer.

I really only need it for the fish lights,so I did a quick search and found a decent one at Canadian Tire, so that's a bonus! Heres hoping I can find the right shop lights again. Bleck.

Some of the electronic power bar or cord timers don't keep their time and settings if you have a power failure or unplug them... so you know..

Even my expensive LED lights with integral timer lose all settings... which I was surprised at for the price tag.

Hello there. I am really sorry to read what happened to your tank. While it looks like you are now on track (grats!) I'd like to mention something I have not seen anyone else point out.

Those two Amazon Swords long term are not going to do so well in your tank. Amazon Swords are one of the larger sword species. Eventually it will outgrow your 10 gallon tank. You are really best served getting a new plant and replace the Amazon Swords when possible.

Once the swords end up outgrowing the tank, they are being passed on to a family member with a large tank, basically it turned into a wee rotation of plants. I start them, they get passed on etc etc... Thanks for the heads up though!

Ah okay. Good planning then. I wish you well on getting things back to normal.
