so heres the plan, I have a goldfish in a ten gallon aquarium... which is way too small so i am going to find it a better home where it will be happier. so then i want to use the tank for a loner secretive catfish (still have no clue what species to get, got some ideas but none firm yet.) i want to have the bottom of the tank completely carpeted in some sort of grassy plant... what would be best? and also which plants would be best to grow to the top of the water and diffuse light?then i need to know... when i find the goldfish a new home... what do i do? just do a partial water change and gravel cleaning? i kindof want to just let plants grow in the tank for a while til it looks good then get the fish... is that a good idea? and would a catfish appreciate plants or should the tank be sparsley planted? if you have ideas on 10 gallon small catfish layouts please drop me a line!
