After starting my 5.5 planted tank my other tank looked, well, fake. I decided to go low tech planted in that one too...

The tank is a standard 10 gallon (that's as big as I can go in this apartment... grrr) with a lone dwarf gourami. There was an assortment of plastic plants and fake driftwood. The plastic plants are all gone and have been replaced with a huge bunch of unidentified floating plants (gourami absolutely loves them!) and one java fern from my 5.5. The driftwood will be replaced with real stuff soon and I will be adding more low tech plants.

I am hoping the plants will do ok in regular gravel, changing substrates sounds like a rather daunting task. I will be using liqiud ferts, and possibly root tabs... your thoughts??

Lighting is one 15 watt T8.

Pics coming this afternoon...
