10 gallon planted tank - Beware! Heavy pics!!

For my first post I wanted to show some pictures of my 10 gallon planted tank.

It currently houses one crowntail betta, 1 mystery snail, and 4 ghost shrimp.

Plant wise:
-Anubias (I've got it staked down w/ paperclips bent into U shapes)
-Ludwigia
-Anubias that I planted onto a large piece of drift wood
-Tiger lilys (Someone correct me if I'm wrong)

Since taking the pictures I've added duckweed to the top of the tank and drawf baby tears (currently working on getting it to attach to a small piece of drift wood)

Without further ado:
---------------------------------------------------------

Wow, what a nice looking tank!!!! Your crown tail is gorgeous, he's such a beautiful bright blue!!!! You might want to cut back on his food a bit, he looks pretty bloated, wouldn't want him to get constipated haha =)

Thanks!
Ya, I noticed that in these pictures, I think I took these pictures right after treating him to some bloodwooms, looks like I got a bit zealous with his treats that day.

Hes definitely not bloated like that at the moment, so musta just been a feeding fluke or something.

haha it happens, crowntails are especially prone to bloating since their bodies are so streamlined, it just makes it more noticeable =)

it's lovely! my only concern is with the paper clips, metal should not be used, if they are plastic then no worries!

Yea, I was thinking your boy looked like he had pigged out a bit, glad to hear he's doing well.

A valid concern. I used paperclips that were coated with vinyl. According to all of the research I did before using them, as long as you use vinyl covered paperclips there should be no issues.

Yup, as long as no metal is protruding/showing..
Love the tank, love your snail! And your shrimp picture is so cute.. "Whatcha lookin' at?" Reminds me of something you'd see in Star Wars, a merchant in a junk shop or something lol
Handsome boy you have.. I'm partial to blue on black like that, as my fave little guy looks like that too- but it's cool to see one as a CT =)

Awesome Tank!
I love the driftwood and that picture of your shrimp is adorable!

ABou the paper clips...
If they are completely covered, it should be fine but you still have to keep an eye out... most paper clips covered in vinyl are exposed at the tips and they will still rust.
