I'm not an aquascape designer, but it seems to me that rock is way too big for a 10g tank - great rock, just steals space from the fish.

Father Knows Best but Abbey knows everything! I once knew everything, then I asked one question.

Well literally it does take up space, however with the tunnels and caves it can actually make it seem much more spacious as you cant see the whole tank at once. (from a fish perspective anyhow.)

The rock will work very well, it is quite "obvious" now but it just needs the black background and the surrounding plants as I mentioned previously. With these, you will not notice the tank dimensions, and the rock will be a stunning aquascape. With the sort of fish that are not active swimmers but more cruisers and browsers, this will be perfect. Some stem plants in the two back corners, Pennywort I think i suggested as it is moderate light and fast growing, and will be a nice contrast to the Fountain plants (Ophiopogon japonicus). Which by the way are not true aquatics, but they usually last long submersed so not (or shouldn't be) an issue.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
