    Hello TFF people!

    So I recently bought a 10 gallon tank, and now I just wanted to show you guys! Please let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions to make it even better!

    Thank you for your time! :) :thanks:

    I rated my own tank a 4 star rating, just because the light could be better.

    (Any suggestions on a relatively inexpensive light?) :)

    I love it! When I send your goodies I’ll send you some anacharis you can plant or float too. Lots more plants would be great.

    I have concerns about fish getting stuck behind the rocks and filter.
    I would remove some of the sand, it doesn't need to be that deep.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing, but I made sure to leave a hugeness gap for the fish, and the sand is that deep for the plants. :)

    That sand may be deep enough to form sulfur pockets - definitely not something you want. I agree with reducing the depth - otherwise you need to make sure you give it a good stir weekly.

    I remember hearing that! I usually stir it up when doing a gravel vacuum. :)

    I think it is coming along very nice. Needs a few more plants in my opinion but love the rocks.

    Thank you! I do agree, i need more plants. I am no plant expert, so I only grow easy plants (Anacharis, Java Fern, etc.)

    I need a fast growing plants, that is “bushy”, and suggestions? :)

    I’ll send you a small Anubias when I ship the shrimp. Easy to grow. They are slow growers but they do get full once they take off. I’m also going to throw a bit of anacharis in.

    Thank you so much! Do they (Anubias grow best in substrate, or on a lava rock/driftwood? :)

    They grow in substrate but in my goldie tanks I actually super glue it to small rocks because they dig it up.

    Cool! Also, does it have to be a lava rock? Or could it be a smooth rock? :)
