Just wanted to show off my 10g in its latest form. Iv been playing around with different decorations and such and I think I finally landed on a theme I like.

Iv wanted to have glass cats for a long time but never had a tank peaceful enough for them until now. Its planted with glass rock. Theres 6 glass cats, 7 ghost shrimp, and a dwarf frog. There are even 2 transparent snails of some kind, pure luck, that came in with a plant. Thanks for looking!

That looks really nice thumbs2:

How do the cats behave together? Do they tend to all stick together or to they slope off alone alot?

That's a great tank. I've wanted to do a tank like this for some time now, and include a variety of transparent and albino fish.

Nice tank! I like that glass block or is that quartz?
The glass cats do get closer to 3-4" long.Mine did.
Here is a link with some info.

The snail's a pond snail. Be weary of it, they can explode in population if you're not careful.

Beautiful tank!

also pond snails unlike most tend to eat living plant tissue too and can desiminate a full tank of plants if left unchecked!

Wow, really? I haven't had any problem with the two snails I have yet. They only seem to eat the algae off the plants, and so far its still just the two. Should I pull them out of there to be on the safe side?
