The denizens of my 10gal are:
1 Dragonscale Betta
6x Neon Tetras
3x Harlequin Rasbora
I am not having a problem with red/brown algae. There is some in the tank, yes, but I expect that at this point since the tank is only about a month old so still stabilizing.
All my chemical levels are acceptable and since the tank is on the desk in my office, it gets a LOT of attention. Filtration and cleanliness of the tank are excellent.
I would describe the tank as moderate to heavily planted, though I know that is highly subject to a person's opinion. Once the plants start to really grow it will become heavily planted and need to be kept trimmed.
I do not want snails and my local and not-so-local stores are having trouble getting ghost shrimp. In fact I was at a store this afternoon and nearly their entire shipment arrived.. dead.
