My very first planted 10 gal tank! (Heavy pictures) *sorry*

Hey everyone! I have been working very hard on my planted 10 gal tank. Spent some time QTing my plants because of snails. Now that they are in my tank I'm in love with planted tanks. Even though I found 3 baby snails crawling around in there. *sigh* I tried my best but Anacharis is just so hard to de-snail. Oh well I will just keep an eye on them an remove them as they grow to keep population down. I did want a few snails anyway. Now my tank is a work in progress and I'm still trying to decide on a decoration to put inside my tank. I never knew that would be so hard. Well here it is!

I took pictures of the snails I found too. One was too tiny to picture but the one on the heater is a pretty good size. Is it a pond snail?

I like it very much.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Thanks! Hopefully I can add a few more plants and a decoration soon. I tried to get better pictures of the snails. Hopefully they look better.

So pretty! Maybe your betta will hunt the snails, I know sometimes they really love that sport!



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?

I don't know what type of snails they are, but the shells and coloring are exactly like what we have in our creek behind the house.
