    Tank: 10 gallon tank from PetSmart
    Heater: Aqueon (if I’m remembering right that is)
    Filter: TopFin Silenstream 10
    Light: NICREW Classic LED Plus
    Substrate: CaribSea Floramax
    Maintenance: 50% water change every two weeks
    Stocking: 2 male platies and “bonus” snails (what some call pest snails haha)
