Hi, all! I know this looks boring, but in the future it will become a beautiful aquascape! Once I am able to go busking and earn a few hundred bucks, I will completely be rescaping this tank. I will:
-Layout white sand on the bottom as substrate
-Get a Sponge Filter (hang-on)
-Get a good quality LED light
-Plant a bunch of aquarium grass in one of the areas of the tank
-Get some tall plants for the back
-Stock it with Endler Guppies (breeding trio) and 4 Cory Cats.

This tank is 20L (5 gallons), so definitely a nano tank! It currently as a bunch of Ghost Shrimp that I see at nighttime. Used to have a bunch of guppy breeders that gave birth to 6 fry, 6 neon tetras, and... that's it! I try not overstocking my tanks. And I will for sure update you all on this tank when it is rescaped! As well as posting a video on setting it up! Thank you for your time, and I hope you like my new plans for it (I sure do!). Have an amazing day, everyone!!!

This is a 10g tank a friend gave me. It currently has a hood from a 20g that includes lighting. The filter came from the pet store as part of a used 20g sale. It has a heater.

It currently houses:

6 White Cloud Mountain Minnows. There uses to be 5 but I found a fry one day; at that time it looked lile a neon terra. I fed it back in the corner while the other fish were busy eating in another part of the tank. She soon knew where to go. I know the fry is a female because she has a well rounded belly.

It also has 4 Celestial Pearl Danios and 2 very charming Amano shrimp.

I feed flakes, pellets, frozen daphnia, live and frozen worms. I do 30% water change each week, 70% monthly.

Plants include:

A crypt of some sort
Dwarf water lily
Pothos ivy
One small sprig Creeping Jenny

Everyone is going into the "It's taking forever to cycle" 20g.

I love this tank, mostly because everyone gets along and is healthy.
Secondly because it's beautiful.

Thanks for reading.
Good luck everybody ♡
