So, I recently got my 10 Gallon Dirted tank up and running about 2 weeks ago. And I must say its the most exciting thing I have had in a while. My German Blue Rams (Not the ones I was planning on getting, I am still going to get the Powder Blues) have already paired off and have already laid a batch of eggs. However like all Rams, the batch was not fertile and was eaten later that day. I expected this to happen, and I expect non wiggler batches for maybe the next two lay times (maybe 6 to 8 weeks total until real wigglers come Very Happy ) The Tank Looks GREAT! I have some Bocopa Caroliniana around my heater(so I can try to hide the heater lol) I have an amazing Tiger Lotus on my "Plant Side" Java Moss on my two pieces of drift wood which maks this awesome little Tree Root looking shelter. Bronze wenti and green crypts, and dwarf sag in the front.













Im sorry the pictures aren't that good. I will try to get better ones up later.

Looks great! Good luck on the breeding rams! If you ever get the fry to hatch and grow a bit I might be interested in quite a few Very Happy

Oh, trust me they will hatch, they are the only two in the tank. It should be about 6-8 weeks hopefully. I will have pictures up as soon as it happens though =D

A "pet" fish, that's adorable. Otherwise the tank is looking really nice and full! The freshwater plants look nice and natural in there.

Its nice cause theres only 6 different plants in the tank (i took out the star grass for now, It will go in when I upgrade this to the 20L). I love it, in probably 3 months I will be over whelmed with plants from this tank. Shocked

The tank looks great! I love planted tanks they look far better than the plastic ones.

I guess I should give you guys the update....this tank is no longer set up........I have moved all of this into a 20L, and i have completely re-did the 10. I will be putting a breeding trio(hopefully) of apistogramma agassizii (aka "Double Red") in. and there are currently 5 "Black" Rasboras. I will post up the process in the DYI...and I will label it "Freshwater Planted Dirt Tank DYI"

Okay, so the start of this tank is in the DYI section under "DYI 10gal dirted tank" (or something like that)

BUT....Heres the tank now =]



ALL CLEAR as promised fingers-crossed
There are 5 "black" (the look blue) Rasboras, and there will soon be a breeding trio of Apistogramma Agassizii "double red" dwarf cichlids =D
