10 Gallon Tank Photoshoot #2

My second crazy photoshoot of my 10 gallon community tank. So I retried the whole planted tank thing and succeeded! (I had horrible algae last time and gave up). I took 42 photographs (waaay more actually but i only uploaded 42). I only displayed my favorites here. Check out my Flickr to see the whole set.

Whats new:
- Wood! I found out that Manzanita wood is GREAT for tanks and In the area where I live we have these trees in the hills I hike on weekends. So I took several peieces that were laying on the trail. I know they are seasoned because they have faint scorch marks from last years fire.

- More plants than EVER! I have Apongeton, a ton of java ferns (babies too!), Anacharis, Hygrophila, Wisteria (new), Peace lily (emmersed) and Pothos (emmersed)

- Platies! The orange ones with their black "lipstick" and a panda platy.

- Black bg

TANK SPECS:
  • Size: 10 gallons
  • Substrate: Inert (regular aquarium gravel)
  • Ferts: 2 drops of Kent's liquid fertilizer daily - also API root tabs for some of the plants
  • Lighting: Indirect sunlight + 23 watt 6500k CFL light (in the afternoon for four hours)
  • Maintenance: 30-50% Weekly water change with gravel vacuum. I only vacuum the clear areas.


Some of the pics:


Tank looks awesome from this angle:


My awesome platies "kissing" my fingers:

If you guys have ANY questions please ask! I'll be glad to help.

Thanks! I just copy and get ideas from what I see the pros do. I'm still waiting for the apongeton to grow some more to fill up some space in the background.

I wish I had a 20g tank to aquascape... Heck, I cant wait till I graduate from college, get a job, make money, and move out, so I can get a massive tank (50-75 gals) to fuss over! :D Not to mention the little betta tanks too!
