Very First Aquarium! (progress pics attatched)

KevinDrums

Hey guys, I got my first 10 gallon tank on January 1st of this year.. I attatched some pics below of my progress. basically a “before and after discovering aquascaping” note, I'm 21 and this is my first fish tank ever. I wanted to know your thoughts on how it looks. any advice, critiques are welcome. and yes, before you ask, the rhizome is visible on the planted anubias.

Looks nice. Glad you got rid of the barrel decoration and went with more natural looking wood. Good choice IMO. What do you have stocked in there? I think I seen a Betta and some Harlequin Rasboras?

thank you! I agree, that barrel was hideous. I had a betta with 6 harlequins.. the betta bit ones eye out, and wouldnt stop flaring. so he got donated to my LFS. then I got a dwarf gourami to put in his place with the rasies. and the gourami chased and chased til he was exhausted. so I donated the rasboras as well. now its just my powder blue DG named Bruce.

As you learned some fish can be real jerks. Good move with returning them to make everyone more comfortable. Good luck with your DG

Very nice - the natural substrate is a real improvement too - this is going to be one to watch
