Nice pictures!

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

same hood to? im guessing you bough it from walmart.if you do have the same hood than watchout because the clear plastic light guards tend to fall off.

same hood here.i ripped mine i altered it cause the plastic ones didnt feel right. also when i was trying to grow massive plants i placed a 45 watt bulb. the energy star ones and the right side where the little holes are melted. still good though :P

yeah i ripped my light guards off too. if i were you id buy a background, it really cheap for a 10 gallon and they come pre-cut at walmart but it makes your fish tank so much better! also maybe a cave? or some pvc covered with rocks for coverage? theres a cave in the 10 gallon my three spotted gourami is in, he usually stays at the top so i thought hed never use it, but sure enough i turned on the light at night real quick to show my sister my fish and he was down sleeping in the dark cave :D
