It looks really nice! :) I like the pretty green gravel tones and the way you arranged everything. My dad used to have hornwort in his goldfish tank.....it was annoying and shed everywhere! LOL! It looks nice though.
Thanks. :) And yeah, it did shed at first but after I got all that cleaned up it didn't shed anymore. :P

Are you planning on introducing any other species of fish?
That driftwood was only 5 dollars! Wooo! Yeah, I plan on raising the water level once I finish cycling. I just want the water flow to be as strong as possible during. (no betta of course) Also, I do plan on introducing a few other species of fish. Just haven't decided which. Any suggestions?

No fish in there yet, it hasn't been cycled yet. But once it's cycled I'm putting my betta, a few other fish, and probably some snails in. :)

Will do and I hope so. :D

Yeah, I was a bit concerned about the size as well but once I got the stuff in there it worked out nicely. I would recommend a nice piece of wood to put in the middle. It takes up a substantial amount of space and looks nice. :) Tell her I said good luck.

Thank you for going Live plants. The Back left is Anacharis :D
Hornwort literally grows like a weed! But thats not a bad thing. If you want to trim it you can either cut it where you want and from the cut it branches out more shoots, or you can but the top half, throw away the bottom and plant the top. (Takes too long haha) I just cut where I want.
Nah. Just like excess of whatever. If you want to start growing a little more demanding plants, the hornworts gotta go. It will use up too much of everything

In response to the inquiry of possible fish additions: I do love me some cory cats. The ones I've added to my 10G are so energetic and interesting to watch. And of course, any shrimp you can find (that aren't ghost shrimp) are a must! ...And any you don't want can be sent my way. :>
