A New Members 10 Gallon
 
This is my 10 Gallon Tank. I'll add more pictures as I get more pictures. My fish are sleeping right now, and I just added an air pump/stone which will be disturbing my sleep tonight.

I did take a few of these photos today but have since then cut some (or most) of the plants away, they really grow too fast...

If You look closely at the 2 above pictures. You Can see the (Blurry) fry in the back ground. ^_^

AND my 5 gallon from about a year ago, and yes, all the new fish you see above are offspring! Oh and I used to have 2 Tetras (those transparent ones in the back) But they jumped out and went under my bedside table... Even though I left plenty of room so they could jump without getting out...

As I said, I'll add more when I get the chance!

If you have any questions feel free to ask :)

Fantastic pictures Ben, you have some beautiful guppies there :nicefish:

Wow, your guppies are gorgeous and your tank looks great. Looks like you are good at growing plants :)

Welcome to the forum!

Great looking tanks! Those are some really good looking guppies, too!

Thanks for the compliments on my tank/guppies and plants =P I didn't really do anything, I just let them all do as they please.

I didn't realize I had so many fry until I cut away the plants last night, they were all hiding!

I wouldn't say I'm good at growing plants, and they never look as Amazing as I see in some people's tanks on this forum. I used to have 3 smaller plants at the front of the 10 Gallon, but they all died thanks to an invasion of snails that I didn't know I got. They ravaged those small plants...

Oh well...

Any tips on how to get rid of snails. They're uber small, mostly brown, and I believe they can multiply by themselves or with others.

Probably pond snails. You can try putting in some vegetables when you turn off the tank lights at night. In the morning, it should be covered in snails and you can remove them.

really? I thought it'd be more meanacingly difficult than that. Great! I'll try it tonight.
Thanks :)

I'm not too sure how many I have... Enough, thats for sure =P but I'm sure they'll continue to multiply anyhow. Including all the fry and "teens", I'd estimate around 50?
