Here is a picture of my 10 gallon as it presently sits. I recently lowered the water level for a couple of reasons. 1) Just to see if I might like it better being able to view activity at the top of the water level, including being able to see floating plants, 2) So Si, the mystery snail can have better access to air if he wishes, 3) to see if the sound of the water coming out of the filter is annoying or soothing.
Now I need to find out which low light plants (non-co2) would fill in nicely for the current fake plants. I do believe I'm completely sold on the frogbit - what a lovely plant that is (another reason I lowered the water level).
