Need Suggestions for Hiding places!
Hey guys! I have a 10g tank that I have had since I was about 7....so the gravel is awesome!
I need some suggestions for hideout additions to the tank.
Before anyone gets ahead of us....this is an interim tank until I get settled into a new house...and a new tank!!

So, I am hoping your aquarium log is incorrect and you have something that can be housed in a 10 gallon.
So, once you tell us what kind of fish you do have in the tank, we can then tell you if or what kind of specific hiding spots you need...or if none are needed but you just want to add one or more, then we can help give you ideas of decor that you might appreciate to look at.
Welcome to TFK, where we strive to help you give your fish the healthiest and happiest home.
that is what is in there...but like i said, its interim for about 1-2 more months MAX. The fish are all under 1.5 inches and the angels are tiny for now. I have full intentions on expanding very soon... the fish were also purchased as a gift, so I am trying to make due for now
So, were you wanting hiding spots for the fish, or just for decor? For those types of fish a small cave and lots of plants with a center for swimming would be ideal. The extra live plants would also help the tank in water parameter stability while you are waiting for that upgrade.
What size are you planning to upgrade to?
I'm getting a third tank in May, only a 15 gal, but I wanted to do sand as the substrate and plant it live at least 50%. I dread the hassle of washing the sand, but for the look I will endure it.
The 15 gal will be used to house all from the 5 gal and the neons from the 29 gal, and what ever females come from the guppy fry.
i am hoping for a 120g at least!!!
I wanted to try the live plant again, but I really have no idea what plants to go for.
Thanks for your help!!
There are lots of live plants that are easy and dont need special lighting. Of course it doesnt hurt to also use an aquatic plant food. Everyone has their own special likings, I am currently using API Leaf Zone Pro Series, only because it was given to me, so what not save the money and use it.
A 120gal sounds awesome!! If you were sticking with angels in that size, I would go for a total of 5 or 6, as it will spread out their species aggression with one another. And do some research on your barbs and tetras you have, and any that are fin nippers you will want to give away or keep in the 10 gal as the angels will not appreciate them. And if they arent fin nippers and are able to be housed with the angels, then I would make sure to get at least 6 of each for them to shoal.
Let me know if you need a link to cycling in prepration for the larger tank. There is also a good article here on TFK on stocking. And you can scan through the TFK Tropical Fish Profiles to find details on your current fish and future fish. When it comes to stocking, cycling, water parameters and general fish questions, I am pretty good. I sadly am not well verses in fish disease, saltwater, or lighting, also not too deeply informed on live plants outside the basics, but plan on changing that as I do more research for planting the 15 gal next month.
