Hello, so I've always kinda had a fish tank... My big tank is at my parents since my apartment is so dang cramped... But i do have a little tank here to hold me over. Well, over time I got bored with it so it got in some pretty bad shape.
So, I cleaned it up.
Then, talking with someone they talked me into making it a planted tank. ( ) So, I removed the tree thing, and the rocks, and put in flourite. I also picked up a 2x24w T5 HO fixture. (super bright!) This picture is still a tad fuzzy from adding the media.
After locating the plants I wanted to use (South American habitat basically) I found that they like to be planted in large river sand, so I grabbed some of the silica sand for my CPs and (cleaned it) and tossed it in and mixed it up. Should be good Added a few more fish too.
I think I'm going to lay the heater down to hide it a bit... but this is where I stand right now.
