My second tank is ten gallons as well. Newly planted except for the red plants. I have a betta and two young mollies in there. (Molly's will be moved to 20 gal soon.) No shrimp yet, bc I want to establish this tank and keep it consistent before adding shrimp.

 

 

 

For some reason it won't let me upload several pictures that I wanted to show my first tank beginning stages. Oh well.moved to 20 gal soon.) No shrimp yet, bc I want to establish this tank and keep it consistent before adding shrimp.
