"The Works" Low Light 10 Gallon Aquarium
A few people have been asking to see the tank after I replanted, so I decided to take a few pics today. These are NOT the permanent locations for the plants, I just wanted to get them settled in already (Still need to remove a few from pots). So, more than likely I'll just update this thread with pics as the tank progresses.
Tank:"The Works" 10 Gallon
Filter: Tetra Whisper 20
Lighting: 15 Watt T8- Life-Glo Full sunlight Spectrum 6700k
Fish: Check Sig
Ferts: Flourish Comprehensive
- Java Fern
- Java Moss
- Cryptocoryne (Red Wendth)
- Micro Sword
Nice tank, I like the lighting and natural wood.
I like the wood too. Whats that light green foreground plant?
Looking good. May I offer a suggestion? Move that standing wood slightly to the right. When any obvious hardscaping (or large plant) is centre in a tank, it is obviously centred and un-natural and it draws attention to the size of the whole. If you move it to the right it will then also cover the heating unit behind. The right rock can be shifted a bit right and forward to be slightly away from the wood then.
Appriciate the comment Fish rescue..
I agree, moving it to the right would not only block the heater but give it a more natural look. I'll do that today when removing the plants from the pots. Any other suggestions before I tackle this thing down?
Yea, thats my main focus. Visualizing and trying to make it look as natural as possible. While still giving my fish the perfect habitat and water conditions to live long and healthy lives.
I need to pick up some long twizzers and some better scissors, that would help a ton.
I know I seem to reccomend the same plants over and over... but the void left when the rock is moved could be filled with some E. Vesuvius or E. Bleherae compacta on the back wall, with Prosperinica palustrus in front (If you don't mind a stem plant.)
