Cool Making my tank Fancy!

Hey everybody!

So i know its been a while, but im back!!! MUahahahahha! No seriously, im so glad i got a chance to come back on this amazing site!

CAUTION: UPDATES:::
My 2 Albino cories are doing amazing! Honeycomb (VT) finally got used to them, and isnt really showing signs of aggression.

Honeycomb has now been with me for 2 years! Woot woot!

Casper is also loving life in his 3 gal!

So, awhile ago i did splurge...on a Fluval Fancy Smancy Filter. It is DA BOMB.
I love it!

The actual thread........

So, i made the mistake yesterday of checking Petsmart's website, and...they are having a sale on Tetras. 1$ per fish. I was thinking of getting some, but need ones that are big enough not to be picked on(i dont think Honeycomb will bother them, but still). Or, i could get 2 peppered cories...


I also am going to start re-doing my tank's aquascape.

Any beginner plants? My tank is located by a window (im an idiot, i know-its been there for 4 yrs) and i rarely use my aquarium light.

Also, my yellow-y tank light has really been irritating me -_-
Any suggestions for lighting? I currently have 2 25w Tubulars..


Thanks for reading! Any comments welcome!

Welcome back! :D It's great everyone's doing just fine.

Personally, I never liked tetras. Never kept them, never will. Plus, quarantining is very hard. In my case, that is. I think cardinals will do? I don't know much about them, so that's all I can guess besides neons. As for the cories, peppers are nice and I recall them being small. Just remember to QT, I got 2 guppies for my sorority and they brought columnaris with them; which wiped all my girls out.

Java fern, java moss, moss balls, I think swords are easy to take care of. Anubias, and some small types of crypts?
Also anarachis, duckweed, and maybe water wisteria.

Do you mean bulbs? If you mean that, I really don't know. ^^"

Im trying to list some tetras that might fit in my tank:

-neons (havent had much success with, could have been a bad batch though)
-x-ray
-glowlight
-bleeding heart (my personal fav, but aren't they aggressive?)

For lighting, I think Aqueon deluxe hoods are nice. I have one for my 20G, but I don't know if they have some for 10G.

And, I personally think you should cross off the bleeding hearts.. They usually get up to 3" and they'd be better off in 20G. Sorry! :\ As long as the glowlights are the thin ones, they're great. As for the others, they'll be fine. Well, at least I think so lol. And tetras are schooling fish, they'll need at the minimum 6 to feel safe. :D

And yeah, i already did haha. I have high hopes for the glow lights! Wouldnt my tank be overstocked though with 6 of them, 2 cories and a betta?

Yes, they are the small/slim ones

There is 10G.. And then there are 8 fish. It should be just fine, besides people have 8 female bettas for a sorority. So it should be a-okay! :D

Plus, they're all on 3 different depths. The cories are the bottom dwellers, the tetras mid swimmers, and the betta the surface breather.
