Planning A Future 38l (10g) Native British Tank - Wild Caught

I have a spare 38L tank sat not doing anything.. 'wasted potential!' something within screams..

So an idea was put in my head about native set ups and I thought cold water British small species tanks would be awesome. Wild caught fish and native aquatic plants.

Now I am hoping to get away without having to buy anything (not including the stand I just ordered.. it was on sale and I didnt have anywhere to put it).

I am hoping a 4th attempt at acquiring a silent filter will found.

Meanwhile, I know where I can catch local minnows and sticklebacks (I think). I was thinking max of 10 fish, slightly more than I need to account for the few that most likely won't make it.

Anyone else already have a similar set up and can offer some advice or info to help make this work?

Thanks.

Youtube was one I hadn't checked yet.

I could do something like that and if it came to it, I could also release into the wildlife pond or even where I got them from.

Great Crested Newts would be cool.

We used to catch them in the marshlands just beyond South East London when we were kids.

Great looking creatures. Although I think they may be officially endangered by now.

I watched a few of them yes.

I will need to have a look into the tank and see if I will like the 'look' of it etc. I still have a betta or two as an alternative!
