I like NPT tanks, so I'll be interested :)
Those danios are beautiful. Thinking of breeding? Haha, jk. Lol.

Oh no, it was just an idea I was toying with, I'm still wanting fishy tank mates but in a 10 gal that just might not be possible, at least not until the plants grow in more.

In the mean time I'm going to be getting 3 purple mystery snails from a member along with some plants for my other tanks. Next step for the 10 gal is to add shrimp after I see that there's enough coverage for them (still to young of a tank to support shrimp life right now)

I used to own platys (when I was a kid) I had a really bizarre community tank and well.... I'd rather not get into details, but I was fascinated by fish then. Now that I have the ability to have tanks again, it's been really nice rediscovering my love for aquatic life. :)

I am now discovering how much I love fish-keeping. Not only do I love bettas, I love all fish. Platys, bettas, goldfish, cichlids, and mollies just happen to be my favorite . I want to attempt to breed platys and bettas.

Anyways, I believe that in a couple of weeks, those plants are going to G-R-O-W

Yeah, already I've seen a ton of growth, the sword (you can kind of see it in the far back on the right side of the second tank picture I just posted) started out TINY last week, as in you couldn't even see it over the wood I have in there and it's already grown a lot.

I think the reason for the sudden growth spurt that I started to see this weekend was that the roots have figured out that they're in soil now and have been able to get the nutrients they need. Which is great. I'm really hoping that the dhg takes off as well as I really like the look of it. I just don't want to do the CO2 thing, so I might start dosing with ferts later if I don't see much improvement.

Update:

The tank is doing quite well, the sword is really starting to take off and I think the dhg is getting bushier :)

I also got some new plants in the mail some of which I added to the 10 gal, the rest I planted in the other tanks. I'll try to post pictures of the other tanks this weekend.

Also, my husband and I adopted a kitty who still does not have a name (suggestions?)
