Redid The Entire Tank From The Ground Up

So I've had my 10 gallon tank set up since November and it's gotten overrun with algea and it was just getting dirty and while my boyfriend and I were in the local pet store we noticed how nice the aquariums there were because they were solid blue so I picked up some brighter lights, 3 bags of dark blue gravel and a background and decided to redo my entire tank.

It took FOREVER! I had to cup my little guys, drain all the water, dump all the gravel into a colander and rinse it and put in in tupperware and leave it out to dry for like a week before I can store it, scrub the entire tank with a toothbrush, rinse it out and then rebuild the entire tank.

Also I think it'll be a lot easier to clean now. I used to have 2 big plants, an ornamental centerpiece, a small plant and 2 marimo balls in each divider. Cleaning was hell. Now I have one big plant, the centerpiece and the marimos. Should that still be enough to keep my boys entertained?

Now I'm just waiting til the water cools off a little since they're used to it being around 78 or so and it's up in the 80's. Just thought I'd share my store with you guys.

yea thats what i remember of the hamster my sister had when i was little. He used to get out every night (even though we stacked stuff on top of his cage, they r stong) and just eat away at the book collection my mom had... haha he was a monster. but he was super sweet and loved to be held so he made it up to my mom with sweetness and little kisses!

I've been so lucky with my hamster. He's never escaped (never even tried) and has been so loving and calm when I'm handling him.
