I just joined this site a few days ago while looking for information about bettas. I set up a planted 10 gallon tank at the beginning of July. The tank is now cycled, and I'm considering how I will stock it. I also have a planted 8 gallon cube which is home to a few ghost shrimp.
Here is a picture of my tank, and below is the information.
-10 gallon glass aquarium
-Miracle Grow Organic Potting Soil capped with Fluval Shrimp Stratum (4 kg)
-Two 10W CFL (5000 K)
-Aqueon QuietFlow 20 Filter
-Pygmy Chain Sword (Echinodorus tenellus)
-Italian Val (Vallisneria spiralis)
-So far, just a few pond snails and Malaysian Trumpet Snails.
