The plants have been growing really well as you can see. I highly recommend Seachem Flourish Excel.

They DEFINITELY love them! That big log decoration is now in my Platy tank. They love zipping through it and the babies hide under it!

New guy and his future home :) (Haven't put him in yet because the water I filled it with is a bit too warm, oops) Already had the extra heater, filter, gravel and plants so all I had to buy was the tank! and the fish :) Took the moss ball and banana lily from Ammo's tank. Hoping to find an anubias for him eventually.

The divider is a DIY, and I'm actually working on a tutorial for how I did it, so I'll keep you posted. :)

10 Gallon divided







My first tank! Doran (the blue betta) loves the current so I put him on the filter side. He uses the filter current as a water slide when he gets bored, often repeating the process for an hour or so until he gets tired and retreats to the front glass

I collected them from my backyard. Store bought driftwood is really expensive here and I wasn't having any luck finding some I liked in store.
It is best to use twigs from hardwood trees like oaks...softwoods like pine will rot very quickly in the tank. I made sure the twigs were well dried out and then I just used a little knife and got the bark off the outside and boiled the twigs for a few hours to release the tannins and water log them. You want to make sure not to collect twigs and branches from anyplace that sprays pesticides.

Hi, guys. You've got some beautiful tanks. I think I might switch to sand after seeing some of your setups.

Here's my first 10g tank for my halfmoon king, Cali:

@Ranks - I'm really digging your setup. The blend of two sizes of pebbles like that gives it a very natural river/stream effect. Very nice!

Had to take out the mopani wood in my 5G, it was discoloring the water horribly. So it's getting soaked until it stops discoloring the water... if it ever does. Fake semi-realistic decor for them for now. Kalinsky and Natsume can't seem to tell the difference though.
