i want this 10 gallon to look hot but i dont have any ideas please help.

P.S. it may look over crowded but its because to the left theres a breeders net just set there and that makes it look bad but theres a female prego platty in there

natural or artificial is the first step. Sand or gravel is second, fake or real plants is third. Here is my suggestion

Sand. It looks beautiful. Add a a large piece of driftwood in the background. Two rock caves on the right and left side. And moss, lots and lots of java moss blanketing the driftwood and rocks but leave a bit in the front with no moss. Add some java fern on the driftwood on places where theres no moss. Use a diy CO2 system and have around 5-6 red cherry shrimp. You pick out the fish.

i'll draw a layout for you, this is good practice since i want to be a landscape architect when i grow up :)

Hopefully you get the point

the newt has to be able to get out of water and for now the breeder net will be in the center of the tank. i dont want to bother with sand again and i already have gravel.

What type of plants can live with just a desk lamp with a 60 watt light bulb inside?(thats what i got until i get more cash)

and this morning she had about 20 babies on the floor but some of them are white, is that normal for live bearers. will they move when the sack is gone?
What do i feed the babies when there sack is gone?
