A thrown-together tank

Well, since Zebra has decided to be a boy, I had to throw together a new tank for him. It's another 10 gallon, housed in the kitchen. I am officially out of room with 2 ten gallon tanks, 1 20 gallon, and 1 55 gallon tank. Feedback on this one is appreciated. The water's cloudy still...that substrate was really mucky. Anyway, it's a mix of live and fake plants for now, take a look:

Looks good. Did you make sure those slate like rocks are 100% safe? Those things can sometimes have jagged edges.

The rocks are reasonably OK. There were some sharpish ones I had to put aside. Also, this fish is a giant HMPK (with small fins, even for a male HMPK), so it's not so much of an issue.

For "thrown together" you sure did a nice job! You don't want to see my "thrown together" look. Which is all the time I guess.

Ha Ha Laki. Thank you. I have three other tanks already, so I had something to draw from.

Also, I'm a tank psycho. They have to look a certain way, even if they are in the beginning phases. This one isn't quite there (as in: I don't like silk plants, all real for me), but it looks OK for the moment.

There are a couple of water lily bulbs in there too...I have a beautiful one in my other 10g, so we'll see how it goes.

Tank looks good. What type of floating plants did you use?

The roots look like my salvinia.

Yep, lots of salvinia. Also some watersprite and a huge water lettuce I got from Tricker's(for free!! Such nice people!). The lights in the tank are really bright, so the floaters are a necessity. Norbert (who was named Zebra but then my daughter insisted on a name change once we figured out he was a boy) doesn't seem to be worried about the light though.

I scaped the tank again, trying to get more real stuff in there. Doesn't look like I will be completely be able to ditch the fake plants just yet, but took one out at least.
