10 gall. tank

Post by Hero on September 19th 2009, 12:58 am

For one of my classes we have to gather information on an invertebrate species by ourselves so i am going to do a crayfish and get some from the local pond. Tomorrow i should have it set up and with some pictures. Heres the stocking list.

  • 1-2 Crayfish
  • 5 Sticklebacks
  • Other fish

I will see what i end up getting! Plus i will be getting plants from the pond and use some left over sand i have from my 40.

*Instead i'm doing a FW planted or a BW.

Pictures!

First i filled the tank with one inch of sand then i added the rocks



Then i filled it up all the way and added filter, thermometer, and lighting along with some instant cycle stuff.




Questions, comments?

Yes, I have one: Is there going to be anything to make it look alive by chance? Razz

Right now is FW. It's probably going to stay like that because i love the crayfish! They are like the FW version of the mantis shrimp Cool.

Yeah. So right now everyone is exploring. The biggest crayfish is about 3 inches and the other 2-3 are about 1-2 inches.

My thoughts exactly. I'm debating on whether i will turn it into a mantis tank later or whether i should get a blue crayfish once it's over.
