hi, first post, so uh, yeah.
i haven't had an aquarium set up since i was about 14 (i'm 23 now). i just finished putting this one together and started populating it. it's a 10g, one of the cheap Wal Mart kits. i've got a tetra heater, tetra air pump, the jank aqua tech filter that came with the tank (which will soon be replaced, probably by a whisper), a couple fake plants and a sizable (for the tank) hunk of driftwood. boiled the driftwood three times, soaked it in cold water, and put it in, and no really noticeable discoloration yet. the tank looks a little yellow but the cheap incandescents were making it look that way already, and will be replaced with CFL's in the near future. also, this may not be a permanent home, as i'm going in with a friend 50/50 on buying a house, and once that's FINALLY done, i'll be setting up something larger, probably a 55.
2 emerald cories
2 rainbow sharks
1 peacock eel who is using this as a TEMPORARY home until a buddy of mine finishes cycling his 30g
once the eel's gone, i'm thinking two more cories and something that'll stay towards the top. maybe a dwarf gourami or something of that nature. and if it's not too packed, maybe a frog or two... so in the end i'd have:
4 emerald cories
2 rainbow sharks
1 dwarf gourami
2 african dwarf frogs
how's that sound? oh, and i think i'm going to replace my gravel with something more cory-friendly, something finer grain.
here's some pics, tripod was in the car so they're a bit dark/fuzzy:
anyway, just thought i'd say hello, show off my tank, and see what you guys think of my proposed tank population. thanks for looking!
