10 Gallon setup with Pics!!


My new setup with a filter and a heater.

Would it be OK for 1 betta with about 5 or 6 ghost shrimp?

I will add a piece of driftwood before they go in it.

are there any other fish i could add with them?

They will love the driftwood..you should try to get some java moss for the driftwood..Ghost shrimp looove java moss!10 gallons is plenty for 1 betta and a few ghost shrimp..The ghost shrimp have a pretty low bio load.

Would the Java moss be ok with a regular light like the one in the picure?

Java moss is a pretty low light plant. It will grow darker in color in lower light and brighter prettier green in higher light. It should work. Getting a light like this would probably work better though if you plan on getting a few more live plants eventually.

I personally use something like this...but it is not the prettiest light

I plan on updating that soon!

Any 6500k daylight florescent bulb should do alright from what I have read.
