Just thought I share some pics of my newest tank. Its 10 gal. laterite capped with black pea gravel. No CO2 with light ferts twice a week. Reasonably bright lighting. The only issue I had through cycling was green water that went away after about two weeks of heavy floating plant coverage. Oh and while it was cycling it got mosquito larva in it so I added three golden mountain minnows to control those. They actually ended up looking pretty good with the red ramshorn snails against the black substrate and backgound. No hurries but I think I will end up turning this into a shrimp tank.
