Wow, I didn't realize so few members have 10 gallon planted tanks. :shock:
I guess I really need to upgrade to a larger tank. :?
The "problem" with small tanks is that the "least" anomoly will cause the fish "grief".
I will use temperature as my first example.
Let's say that during the winter the power goes out and the temperature in the house "starts dropping".
A temperature drop of 1F in a 50G tank would translate to an approximate 4F drop in temperature in a 10G tank (ie. probably dead fishies).
Similarly if 1.5 Tblspns (in lieu of 1 Tlbspn) of Flourish were added to a 100G tank the effect would be negligible but would be very significant in a 10G tank.
