10g no filter

Howdy,
Here is my initial set up 10g Planted tank. It was going well until the last 3 days there has been a huge algae spike and plants are dying off a bit.

Love everyone's tanks! I'm saving up money for a new tank (4 gallons!) and I am going to make it planted.

You all have some amazing tanks! I'm currently in the process of redoing my tank due to my plants dying off from an algae bloom. I currently have a few amazon swords in the back of the tank and some anacharis floating. Do you guys have any suggestions on additional plants? It's a 10 gallon with Petco sand substrate and I'm working on making it heavily planted. Here it is currently; the small swords in the middle and foreground will be replaced.

Shark, I really like the colour scheme you have going on in there, great substrate combo. I know hat you mean about the plants and the algae, just killed mine off as well (I needed some floaters/more water column feeders so I went on my local aquarium club's classifieds and managed to get a hold of some floating fairy moss which solved my algae problem in about 4 days!) Maybe you need some more floaters like I did. My problem was definitely a combination of too much lighting and not enough water column feeders. Adding the floaters seems to have solved the whole problem for me :) Even killed of my amazing hair algae problem!

Wow Stone, that is an amazing setup. So massive in scale and theme. I could sit in front of it for hours.

Smile proud to say my girls tank is now 100% naturally planted!

she has an amazon sword, windelov java fern, some dwarf hairgrass and a marimo moss ball!
i'm really happy about it!
im hoping everything grows in really well. any suggestions on caring for these? all i have is gravel, is there any tank fertilizer i should get?
i also wanna get a taller plant, or something that hangs out at the top. any suggestions, preferably low maintenance as i am still starting out (:
