Tanks don't need to be cycled to be planted. Plants actually help with cycling, especially with fish in cycles. :)

I think I finally have everything in it's place. Now for the hygro to grow some more/take out those fake plants on the right! And find some java fern/anubias to fill in that empty void in the front!

Here are my two planted tanks. They arent as pretty as a lot of the tanks I've seen on this thread.

Here's Alpha's 10 gallon tank. He shares his home with an albino BN pleco, ghost shrimp, a few mystery snails (i might move them to the other tank), and a few assassin snails since I ended up with some pond snails.


And here is my newest tank. I actually just got a dragon scale crown tail betta for this tank. I think I'm going to name him Spike. Its just him and a bamboo shrimp and pond snails.


And I just have to show off my new little guy. Hes gorgeous!


Now I want to start another 10 gallon, but I'm pretty sure my boyfriend wouldn't be happy about it. Lol

I've added some new plants to my bowl- is it looking a bit crowded? I think its getting to look a bit hap-hazard. By the way keppsmiling, I love your first tank!

This is my 10 gal sorority. This isn't the whole tank, obviously, but I wanted to show off the detail. You can see "ugly fish" swimming in the middle (that blueish/brownish blob). There are 4 girls in this tank. ^_^ They seem to be prety happy.
