This is my journal about my 10 gallon tank. It use to be my QT but my puffers tank was always problematic. I never could work it and then my male puffer got stuck in the filter intake one day time my wife find him it was too late.
So with after that I moved the remaining females to the QT took the puffer tank down and gave it away (yes I was that frustrated!). Now the puffer tank (former QT) only had a little bit of sand for a substrate one melon sword which is not doing very well (hoping after the make-over it recovers) and a piece if mopani wood. The piece of wood slowly turn black and is now covered in what I guess is string atlas. To me it looks very natural and it actually help keep the tank algae free. I never took a picture of it before so you will have to use your imagination LoL.
After the make-over it has a soil substrate cover with black sand. A new piece of driftwood that has a anubias attach to it (bought it that way the other day), the same piece of mopani wood, Java fern, Java fern windelov, hygrophila corymbosa stricta, and the melon sword. Oh and a crypt of some kind LoL and Pygmy chain sword(hoping it does better in this tank)
This is a working progress and I plan on getting a black background tomorrow.
