The Evolution of my 10 Gallon.

Several months ago I set up a 10 gallon aquarium and I've never really been one to leave well enough alone so it has went through a few stages as far as looks go. This is what it looked like the first day I set it up.


And this is what it looks like now. I think I like it now.

I forgot to add this phase...You can see how much that banana lily has grown in just a few months. The tiger barbs have gone to a bigger home.

did you change the substrate while your tank still had fish in it? I was thinking about changing my gravel to sand, or at least different gravel...

No...But I have done that in the past. When I did do that, I left a bit a old gravel in it and put the new sand on top of the old stuff. Worked just fine. I actually getting ready to completely re-do that tank...again. The whole system crashed the other day out of the blue and killed all but 2 of my fish. I'm probably going to go low budget and just put a layer of flourite and black gravel. Then cycle the tank and make it a tank for a few female bettas.
