When I read the title I thought someone was starting a 10 gallon tank to have an oscar fish in.:hmm3grin2orange:

Looking good, I love the look of sand as a substrate.

I'm with Postal on that one, I though for sure I was going to see an oscar stuffed in a 10 gallon. Then I saw the poster and I thought "Noooooo, he's smarter than that. Isn't he???"

I like the simple design. Sometimes simplistic is better than extravagant. Real cool little tank.

I went to the lfs today. They didnt have any hairgrass and their anachrias was looking sickly so I didnt get any. I did get some plant weights and a magazine though thumbs2: Ill check at petco hopefully sometime this weekend.

I went all over town today and nowhere had the plants I wanted. I did get some lilies for the pond though so it wasnt a complete waste of time. Ill go out on thursday and see if anywhere got anything in yet.

I am very unlucky. Im 99% sure all of my cherry barbs are female :scry: But besides that nothings new. Ive got about half the substrate changed and its looking good.

I mad a black background and decided to go with leaf litter as a substrate and ditch the dwarf hair grass. Im still gonna get some anachrias 1 bunch for the bottom and some to float on the top.

OscarFan
05-20-2009, 11:30 PM
I added some leaf litter and the cherry barbs love them.

You can usually tell the difference between male and female cherries at the store. The males almost look like a different species because that are such a flaming red. Even when they're at a not so good place like petsmart i can easily tell the difference. Females aren't bad though :)

this is how a male will normally look at the store, I've seen some even brighter than this.

OscarFan

I saw a couple males at the store, Might pick them up. Some of the shapes looked like males and was oping they would be but im not seeing the color.:scry: Also might get some shrimp or something of that variety.

Nothing new Ive been looking for Anachrias but this town is dry for plants. And ive been more busy looking for a good deal on a larger tank.
