my 10g planted tank i started today! first time trying a planted tank and i'm crossing my fingers i don't kill all the plants. the soil is a mix of flourite and sand and i'm using the 'flourish' plant supplement. i had 50watts of regular bulbs in the lid my tank had and the lid had heated up in 20minutes and i didn't feel comfortable leaving it on. i took one light out until i can get fluorescents tomorrow. any tips for a newbie would be appreciated!!!

A white or light colored betta would look nice in that tank!!! a red one would look nice too!

GIVING AWAY PLANTS? REAL OR FAKE, I'LL TAKE THEM

Just rearranged my tank, because I changed baffles and that changed where the light is in the tank, and because I just not new plants! :D

Before...


And how it is now! :D


The Rotala and Hygrophila angustifolia Are a bit kinked at the moment, but they should work themselves out as they settle in. :D

And I have more of many of the plants in a 5 gallon bucket with a grow light, to grow out for the tank I'm in the process of setting up.
