Nice tank! I like the natural look to it. The driftwood is lovely.

Thanks guys i loved the planted scene so much i wanted to do one first was a ten gallon, and when i moved out i got a 55 gallon for a welcome home present from my dad haha and i wanted to go as natural as i could so my dad brought some massive peices of drift wood!! so i found one that would fit WITHOUT CUTTING and got to work went to my local petland and they hooked me up!!
im going to be leaving it alone for a while to let everything grow its roots and of course replant some floaters haha but add some more substrate to the back and corners ( I'm a employee of Petsmart not to bad of a discount) but anyway hope you guys enjoy ill post more pics of the build !






ten gallon

that is really a crappy tank..the plants and driftwood are horrible....i think you need to pack all that junk up and send it to me so you and the fish don't have to suffer....lol

a 2nd heater? why not just get a bigger one that is meant for a 55 or bigger? 150W-200W would be just fine...then you don't have the excess clutter in your tank.

I like tanks like that, but the plants just don't like it.

Don't take my comments the wrong way, it looks good. Just trying to help you out.

as far as the heaters its been getting colder and i already have one for a 55 but the water is just staying cold at night so i added the extra one bc i had it laying around i may eventually get a heater rated for a 100 gallon but not sure yet lol and i hate the cluttered look too its just temporary.

and what do the plants not like?
i appreciate the advice too thank you!
