So, at long last, here are my 2 10 gallon tanks! Both are bare bottom. Yes, I mean bare bottom - the rocks and sand you see are just a thin layer that is siliconed to the bottom of the tank in order to provide a more natural feel for the fish without having any areas that debris can be trapped. I can honestly say that I'd never go back to sand or gravel now that I have seen the light! Literately, it takes about 1 minute to clean the tank, and then I'm just siphoning water until I've removed enough. Oh, and the RO unit I've been using...best thing ever for algae. I have no algae now, not even diatoms in a newly set up tank! So, without further ado, here they are:
10 gallon tank 1 (currently empty until my newest rescue comes out of QT):
10 gallon tank 2 which still needs a background (home to my little DT rescue Wormy):
And here's Wormy (so named because he had internal parasites!):
FYI: His tail isn't clamped, he actually has a floppy lobe that never straightens out (it's hanging on the other side in the pic). He's like a puppy with one upright and one floppy ear.
I hope you like
. Sorry for the dark/blurry pics. The tanks aren't actually that dark, I'm just a much better scientist than a photographer!
