hi ppl.i just set up this 10 gal in record time.i plan on keeping 2 dwarf gouramis in it along with 4 neons.i want ...
same hood here.i ripped mine off.lol. 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
