10 GALLON AQUARIUM. The 10 Gallon Fishtank is how It all starts for many kids. My First fishtank was a 10 Gallon Aquarium setup that I got at a young age. I remember having the idea for a 10 gallon setup as I was fishtank shopping at pet supplies plus....The 10 gallon is how they get you!

What’s up Fishtank People?! The Small Tank Series CONTINUES today. Last week we did a 5 gallon, this week we are doing a 10 gallon! Oh yeah.
So I am excited to be bringing this ten gallon tank to you today. I have to share that I believe my first tank ever was in fact a 10 gallon tank. It had darker green gravel, a scuba diver and lastly a NO Fishing sign in it.
Yes- this is also the tank where the goldfish named Dabloon lived. A dabloon is a gold coin from a sunken treasure ship, a name my dad came up with. Speaking of my dad. I remember holding the door for my dad out to the garage while he lugged the tank out the garage to do a full 100% water change scrub down. (No sure why Dabloon died, but this 100% water change no-no was probably part of it!) I hear I sobbed for a long time with the discovery that dabloon was dead..
So the 10 gallon… This is how they get you folks. The tank is the “Multi tank it is” bug starter. Yes. I can recall Pet Supplies Plus back in like 1997 for only $1.99…and a 5 gallon cost 12$.....I’m rolling with the 10.
I can also remember adding up all of costs of everything I actually needed for this tank to be setup and going, “Wait a minute, this is more cash than I was looking to spend!”
The 10 gallon readily available, double, the space of a 5 gallon. Good gas exchange with its height to surface area. And is the size of tank I remember staring at at my buddy David Brindles house who had light blue gravel and corner box filter, and me going. I’ve got to have this!
So how are we going to approach this 10 gallon today? We’ll I am going to keep it basic here. Last week we showed you how I used a premium grade substrate. I also have more than enough videos about dirting your aquarium, so today I am going to show you how I am going to setup a 10 gallon tank WITHOUT Dirt, but with adding plants that DON’t Require as much nutrients at their substrate. I realize that for many people watching this, the idea of setting up a tank with dirt under the gravel then pouring water over it is crazy town. So here today, I’m going to keep it simple with a low tech- Almost no dirt needed aquarium.
NOW- You will NOTE: BOTH this video and LAST video. I Mentioned Dirting your tank. This is for a REASON. You have a significantly less number of species you can keep without A GOOD SUBSTRATE. So while I am rolling NO DIRT of GOOD SUBSTRATE HERE- Let it be said- If you want good plant growth, you need good substrate….

NOTE: This is fully inspired by some work that my Monster handed Man Crush Kevin Kelly designed…. I’m gonna work these rocks in above THE RIM…
Ok, Why am I doing this? The main reason I am doing this is I want to see people push themselves with a 10 gallon. The reason I like Kevin’s work so much is because he is not afraid to takes risks and do something outside of the mold.

Due to the lack of a proper nutrient rich substrate base layer we are simply not going to be able to keep some of the plant we might have liked- Dwarf Sag, Baby tears, Jungle val- These are OUT.
