Thanks for the add. I'm new to the site. Watch a bunch a vids on youtube and found this site. Right now I have a 10 gallon stocked with artificial plants, sand, heater, aquatech 5-15 gal filter. And it has a betta in it. My son wants to add fish to it. I'm planning on converting it over to a dirted tank first. Just got to get the supplies and do it.
