Introduction

This is a 10 gal Dennerle Scaper's Tank with a 5W LED that came with the tank. I got it kinda for my three-year-old, but really for me. I had guppies as a kid, but this is my first real go at it. Having issues with algae and nitrates - I hear it's actually a little harder with a smaller tank to keep parameters in line since any little thing can cause a big swing. It's a learning curve, but my inhabitants don't seem to mind too much. I already have a couple of baby RCS that are about 1cm long and getting gradually less shy.
