    Turns out it was cheaper to get a starter kit than use my extra tank and buy everything for it. The lid and filter alone would have cost more than the starter kit!

    I want some mystery snails and about 12 feeder guppies in this tank. I am hoping that I will have a steady supply of guppies in a few months to add to my turtle tank here and there. I wanted something that wouldn’t cause overcrowding and also have other purposes.

    So I have:
    A 10 gallon tank with lid
    25lbs of brown rocks

    I still need:
    Some plants (trying to decide between live and plastic) I’d like live but don’t know what to add.

    I will be adding more things as I think of them.
    Anyone have good suggestions on live plants? Or if they would be ok with the LED lights on the tanks lid?

    Oh great! I’m going to check those out. I want a natural looking tank with lots of hiding places.
