share pics of your 10 gals?

Anyone want to share pictures of their planted 10 gals? I just got one for my boy yesterday and am probably going to plant it with mostly anubias, a couple of javas, a few strays. I'll also add clay pots (hole covered) and driftwood. I cant wait!

YAY!!!! today in my 10 gal. i am changing(it has been set up for 2 yrs) my ugly gravel out for sand!!!!! Once it finishes the mini-cycle i will be getting 3 peppered cories! There is ONE pic of it in my albums, with the gravel. I will DEFINITELY take pictures of it with the sand AND then with the sand AND the cories, definitely subscribing to this thread!!!

It currently has silk plants, an HOB, a submersible heater, a standard light, and 3 marimo moss balls. I regret getting this ugly gravel, its like a puked up rainbow...glad i am switching to sand!

Lovely looking Betta you have :).

The plants are nice but the substrate kinda looks like a bowl of Lucky Charms to me.... not in a bad way but i see the rainbow image you mentioned :)

Looks awesome Rainbow! love how you kept some of the colorful stones!

anyone else want to share?

I just got together Moonies tank, cost me a bundle of my pay check for all those plants! The larger ones for 8.99 each at petco in the plastic snail free containers...jeesh, he better like it! Lol. He keeps resting on top of his terracotta pots, very cute. (the holes are stuffed with sponge.
I just have to add the driftwood which is going through a soak and I do plan to add more plants on the floor eventually. He loves to explore in there, its so fun to watch. I also like how dull the incandecants are, gives such a relaxed look, im just not sure the lights are bright enough for some of my plants.

I plan on adding a couple of shrimp someday, does it seem like an okay environment for them? When I add the shrimps there will be some mosses on the diftwood too :).



And these are some umbrella plants in the corner, I read they may or may not live fully submerged, im hoping they do tho, I really like the look of them! (below)


Mostly I have swords, crypt, tropical ferns, umbrellas and anubias. I am dosing with half a cap of flourish (will this harm shrimps?).

This is mine--anubias, amazon sword, argentine sword, mondo grass (which I later learned isn't fully submersible and is some how surviving anyway), and marimo balls.
