This is my first tank in years. It's a 10 gallon, with fake plants, natural gravel, a piece of Malaysian driftwood, and a slate ledge/cave that I made.
It is the home to a male Sunburst Platy
, a male Red Wag Platy
and 6 Harlequin Rasboras. And possible future home of 4 pygmy corydoras
Let me know what you think and thanks for looking!
Here is an updated pic with the water topped off after realizing that my heater is fully submersible....think the fish got tired of pics cuz the platies are hiding behind the driftwood and the Harlequins are all along the side of the tank, lol. Also moved the feeding ring to the back corner so its out of sight unless looking slightly up at the tank.
I think the left corner came out pretty well. I needed something to hide some of the light so I bought 2 plants that are taller than the tank. One is in the gravel like normal and the top flops over and floats. The other, I took the bottom off and tied a suction cup to it and stuck it to the glass a couple inches below the waterline so that it will float. I am thinking about duplicating this on the right side as well for some balance.
The little rock in the middle was picked out by my 14 month old son. This tank has really been great for him. He has to do physical therapy and he will stand in front of it and watch the fishies all the while not realizing he is doing therapy. Win Win!
