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.

That Wafer Board is going to wreck havoc in that aquarium, once it starts to come apart. I know because I work construction, and have seen what happens when that stuff gets wet. Plus there are all kinds of toxins in it. Having said that, I do love the scape just should use some closed cell foam, or just support it with a cushion of sand.

Don't you think the particle board you put in the bottom under the rock will dissolve and release glue / poison that makes up particle board? I've used styrofoam, but I'm pretty sure that's inert.... opinions?

Sadly for most the 10 gallon is a pain for their first tank. 10 gallons are the worst for beginners since many stuff them with different types of fish that shouldn't go in a 10 gallon. Most fish sold at a big chain pet store needs at least a 20 gallon or 15 gallon.

I thought about these words: ecosystem, biotope, sustainability, permaculture, biosphere, energy efficient, abundance in variety, variety in lifeforms, natural filters, natural designs, self sufficiency. Low maintenance. These are words that I have been typing in, searching the net, and there is always a little of each not always all of it, I am attempting to make some urban farming I've gotten around to making an aquaponic system, now would you make a video about these words? What is your personal experiences resembling these words? I think these topics are quite interesting, but to mash up all of them together is probably even better, you interested in making such a video or is this a lot to ask for?
Andreas Mathiassen

Andreas Mathiassen
Andreas Mathiassen - 3 years ago
Dustin's Fish Tanks I am a nerd, these topics interest me, they are quite motivating, I read the biosphere 2 project book, it was so massive a project. that man John Allen really cared the way I do sometimes, I wondered about one question: what is the smallest amount of space, to keep 5 mice alive in a closed ecosystem, considering these factors: mice eat, the breed, and they die. Consider trying to keep them alive in a closed environment, it takes food to grow, and more food when they breed, but it also takes the ecosystem a natural deffence system to prevent them collapsing the ecosystem, a predator. The smallest amount of space to keep 5 mice alive all the suddenly requires a huge amount of space, ironically. Specifically if it is zero maintenance. An ecosystem fending for itself against 5 mice, interesting game, scientists would be having contests on who could do it in least amount of space, the longest amount of time. If they do it right their ecosystem will probably outlive them. Now: think about the words I wrote and make a video on how you imagine this ecosystem just in the fish world. And remember I did write mice, a very small creature, but right off the bat the smallest mamal I could dream of trying to keep alive in an ecosystem, in the fish world what would be your mouse? Now try make a video about that!

Nancy Ware

I would put a frosted contact paper on the back glass to hide the HOB filter. I have used shelf linen papers, kitchen waxed paper, and I used to have a pale blue gift-wrapping paper that had a slight iridescence to it. And of course, there is always painting the tank. Each kind of paper gives a different effect, so play around and see what works.
Nancy Ware
Nancy Ware - 3 years ago
Playing with the deco is half the fun, D. I'm loving the nano tank series! Gotta give us small tank folks some love too. ;) Tank on!
Nancy Ware
Nancy Ware - 3 years ago
I've never put the contact paper on the tank trim. One, i don't mind the frame, and two, i think getting it off the trim later would be a royal PItA. I've stuck some of the lighter/translucent papers directly onto the glass, but for the darker ones I just scotch tape them in place. Contact paper adhesive on glass tanks only; you'd ruin an acrylic one trying to scrape it off later.

My 5gal betta tank currently has a light turquoise piece of poster board taped to the back. The fish is a red half moon with dark blue markings, and the background really makes him pop.
Inter5tella

Nancy Ware does contact paper stick to the black trim of tanks? I never tried it and want to experiment a bit with different color/pattern trims, like white or light blues, or maybe gluing some iridescent paper to the trim as well?

I cringed when you put that board in the tank. I would be afraid of the chemicals leaching into the tank, and as you have stated in this nano series, you just don't have that much room for error in a small tank. i would recommend breaking the tank down and using a piece of acrylic or Plexiglas, or even a plastic cutting board instead.
Ratsnake151
Ratsnake151 - 3 years ago

John Micheal I will admit I didn't think of this when I put it in there, and in fact it might kill fish. So yes- you all could be right. Or - and what I'm banking on....I've already done 5 x drain and fills, it's also pinned under a massive rock pretty good. Again. I'm not saying it won't hurt anything, but I'm willing to roll with it ;)

I like this video because it shows that you can try (and then actually keep) things on a small scale. Too many channels are pushing ridiculous giant tanks and huge fish rooms. The average aquarist just starting out should be taught to keep their hobby manageable. If you ask people who used to keep fish why they quit, 99% will tell you it was too much work. The look of a 10 or 20 gallon can be changed easily and relatively cheaply and will keep the hobby interesting without becoming the maintenance and financial burden of a larger tank. You don't always have to spend a ton to buy a bigger tank, filter, light, air pump, heater, etc. Instead you can save a ton on all that stuff, invest in some plant varieties from Dustin, and have a beautiful tank or two on a budget that is manageable and that won't drive you out of the hobby.

Cool looking tank! I think it might be closer to the 5 gallon mark now with all that rock volume! :P You don't think that OSB plywood would give you issues with fish? I know most manufacturers have moved away from formaldehyde in their glues, but idk how the the rest of the glue makeup/preservatives would effect your fish.

Man, I could fix up 10 gallon tanks all day. Love this above the rim look... ideas, so many new ideas from this.
Just a quick question, where did you get those long tweezers? I see lots of tank folks having the same.

Just for me man, would love to see this tank in a darker room setting with the tanks light/lights on, water clear, Betta rockin'! Basically a update a few weeks from now, month w/e.
Keep on keepin' on Dustin!

I've never scaped a tank where stuff is higher than the top of the aquarium. I've seen it and it looks good on giant tanks, but I want to try. Seems like lighting would be hard to set up.

I really like this tank,s negative space
sand and rocks are just a
shade different blending but not ( great contrast) and I like that big rock coming out of the water I guess you can glue it to make it more secure?
