Thread: My Ever Changing 10 Gallon

As promised here are all the photos. First here are some photos of the full tank. You can see the rocks and Water Sprite and the Crypts. Below are some closer shots of my crypts. (Ignore their white leaves I'm waiting for my iron supplement ferts to come in so they can color up) I'll have pics of the fish and the eggs in a little while.

Nice looking tank. I love the picture of the oto peaking out of the bottom of the pot. Good luck with the eggs, nice color on the female apisto.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Thanks so much you guys :D Hopefully the eggs hatch soon. Its been over 48 hours since they were laid and they should hatch anywhere between 36-72 hours. I'm not completely satisfied with the tank as of yet. I hope to get the plants to grow in more and maybe add a few more species. I also would eventually like to switch out my HOB filters for a canister. Well if/when the eggs hatch i'll put up so new pictures for you, and when I start dosing iron and the plants start looking better I'll definitely show you guys that :D Thanks again for reading!!

The pebble substrate was actually bought at a Walmart in their pet's section. I got it around 7 years ago when I first started keeping fish. I've just been re-using it since!!
The eggs hatched this morning however the mother either ate them or they fell in between the gravel and I can't see them as they aren't free-swimming yet. Hopefully they're just hiding between the pieces of gravel. The female is still showing some brooding coloration and is staying in her cave. I'll be really disappointed if she did eat the babies but it was her very first batch and she's still very young so I wouldn't be surprised if she did.
Once again thank you to everyone who read and commented :D If the fry did indeed survive, I'll be sure to take pictures once they're free-swimming.
