Mythago Wood - 45l (10gallons) water with...

Hi everyone,
my name is Sylvia, and I'm 20years old graphic designer from Poland. I deal with aquaristics for some two years and I was always accompanied by my bettas.
Then I fell in love with snails and so it has moved rapidly...

Tank size: 50x30x30cm
Date of founding: 25.10.2012
Lighting: Aquael Decolight 11W x2
Heating: Elite Mini 50W
Filtr: Aquael Fan Mini Plus
CO2: snails ;)
Fertilization: snails again
Substrat: black basalt

Residents:
HM betta female, HM betta baby (7 weeks), about 10 tylomelania snails (golden, orange, chocolate), 4x brotia pagodula snails, red cherry shrimps (20?), pink, blue and brown planorbarius snails, one yellow ampularia, and a lot of melanoides tuberculata snails

Plants:
rotala rotundifolia, cladophora aegrophila, mini pelia
Bucephalandra: sintang, melawi
Anubias: nana, coffeefolia, minima, golden (and one whose name I don't know)
Moss: creeping, willow gigantea, quell willow, phoenix



And now... photos!

The first few months (don't look at the date on photos, it's wrong):




















And next stage:












Then came tylomelania snails and design had to be changed (and White Pearl Shrimps already died).

















And now:


















And this is the end (as long as I don't do new photos), if you've gotten this far - congratulations!
I am happy to hear your opinion ;-)

Awesome tank. I have to admit to not being a fan of snails but I think it because pond snails have infested one of my 10 gallons and won't go away. My assassin snails should be about 5 pounds by now with as many snails as they have eaten.

Your pictures are beautiful, I love the wood in your tank. It is very close to what I have envisioned for the 10 gallon after I redo it to clear it of snails. It's currently divided for 2 male bettas but since Brat went SIP last week, I believe I am going to take the divider out and community my Periwinkle with a few different types of tiny fish.

Thank you! Yes, there live adult female, and 7weeks baby (who propably is a boy), but they don't swim together, baby is in plastic nursery fish tank made from water bottle.
I will soon get a new tank and then one of them will go into a separate aquarium.
