    Not sure if this is the right spot to post this but here it goes. Just wanted to show you all my 10 gl FW that I've had up and running for about 3 months now.

    The plants and the wood are fake. But the log is empty so theres a lot of hiding spots throughout.

    There are:
    2 - Zebra headstanders
    2 - Tiger Barbs
    2 - Golden algae eaters
    2 - White blushing angels
    2 - Rosy Barbs
    1 - Redtail shark
    1 - Striped Raphael catfish

    Might seem like a lot but they have been doing great. Hope you enjoy!

    I think you should put some low maintenance live plants in there;). There are some that don't require much for lighting and no CO[SUB]2[/SUB].
    Cool tank Johhny.

    I agree with mission, real plants will benefit the tank. Looks good buddy. Luna

    I've got a 36 Freshwater that I love. Great fish. I can't decide whether I should keep it fresh or go seahorse with it.

    Nice little tank. There is something to be said for FW. I have a little FW tank myself. I think it is, however, going to be donated to the kids next door. Get them on their way with the hobby.

    Float some duck weed ontop it will help with Nitrates and it grows like wild fire.

    Real plats in FW are harder than people think. If you want to have any decent FW fish they will rip it all out so fast it wont even be funny.

    Oscars etc.. all will rip it out and make the tank thier own.

    Nice tank,

    But way overcrowded there. I hope you have a 60g/75g lined up to house some of those monsters
