Here is my 10 gallon divided tank when I first got it set up:
And here it is now:
This is Lucky's side:
And this is Fly's side:
This tank has quite a bit of water wisteria in it, floating on the top and planted in a couple places. There are also microswords, crypts, anubias, and banana plants. I had some hornwort, but I took it out because it was making such a mess with nettles everywhere. The water wisteria is awesome and I'm constantly trimming it back to keep it under control. The anubias are established and growing well, but I suspect we'll have an algae problem in the future despite the oto clean up crew. The microswords are lovely, but slow to grow in my set up. We'll see how the crypts do, they're a new addition.
It's a low tech setup. No CO2, 2 CFL lights at about 10W that are in the tank's original hood, plain gravel substrate, and .75mL of Flourish once a week. I'm very conservative with the Flourish due to having some shrimp in the tank. There are a couple root tabs in to support the microswords and planted wisteria. Lucky's a serious jumper so I've been keeping the water levels lower to avoid any incidents. He jumped his divider once, but no trouble now that it's a solid five inch high barrier.
It's great having all of these plants for my boys to swim through and peek out of. I've never tried live plants before, so this has all been an adventure.
