10 Gallon Setup *Opinions Appreciated*

Hi,

This will be my first planted 10 gallon sorority for 5-6 girls. I hope for this to be a great success and a great project worth working on. So this is what I had in mind starting with the accessories and links:

* Marineland Glass Canopie http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...fm?pcatid=3781
*Fluorescent Strip Lights 8000K http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...m?pcatid=13397
* Seachem Purigen http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...fm?pcatid=4190
* Azoo palm Filter for a separate tank http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...fm?pcatid=9821
* Theo Heater 50 watt http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...m?pcatid=11368
* Stability - To establish BB faster http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...m?pcatid=12021
* Seachem Flourite Substrate Black Sand http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...fm?pcatid=4870
* AquaClear 20 Filter from PetSmart

Fish/Invertebrates
5-6 Female Bettas preferably from AquaBid
10- However many yellow/cherry reds I can get for a good deal also from aquabid

So, what do you guys think of this setup? Should I add anymore liquid fertilization's? What do you guys think and suggest? All ideas welcome!

It is going to beautiful! Makes my 10 gallon one boring; only have one male betta and 2 frogs in it! Don't forget to get some test strips/kit to check water conditions...

I have the aquaclear (now another name)and I love it! I do have to let the lid sit crooked or else it rattles. Other than that, it's a SILENT filter. The Azoo I have been eyeing for my 2.5 gal, but my whisper has been fine for now. Eventually I'll upgrade to it.
That flame moss looks so cool! I'll have to get me some!

I like the flame moss. I think the bettas will love it. I have never seen any before. It will make such a great hiding spot.

I would ditch the flame moss I have some it grows really really really slow without co2 and would add some anacharis or combomba or a temple plant of some kind, but the 3 tanks I do have the little patch of flame moss in the bettas seems to enjoy sticking their faces in it

Before you do anything, check out Craig's List for aquariums. You'd be surprised what you can find for 10th of what you'd spend for new.

A friend recently bought a full 15-gallon set-up and stand for $50.00. He took the fish to PetSmart for credit.

Although I did do that and spent $15 for the tank and good with filter and ugly decor. But I upgraded the filter and decor. :/
