So, i finally got my tank to a point where i actually like it. Its a 10 gallon aquarium.
as far as plants go, there are: its a wisteria, amazon swords, java fern, ludwigia.
The fish consist of: an African knife fish, red tail shark, 4 angelfish, bolivian ram cichlid, powder blue gourami, betta, rubberlip pleco, and a african butterfly fish. I know its extremely overstocked, but they are all still babies and will all be moved to an bigger aquarium later.
With the lighting, i just have 100 watt regular light bulb, i have a sponge filter as the only filtration and a heater.
