    Starting up a planted tank again

    Recently started up an aquarium again, finally. Here's my 20 long...currently cycling.

    Very cool, what plants are in there?
    Do you plan on adding any animals?

    Let's see...

    Sagittaria subulata, Cryptocoryne wendtii ('Green', 'Tropica' and 'Bronze/Red' varieties), Cryptocoryne spiralis, java fern, Anubias barteri 'Coffeefolia', Bacopa monnieri, Hydrocotyle leucocephala, Ludwigia repens, Hygrophila difformis, Rotala indica/rotundifolia

    Pretty much all low to medium light plants.

    Stock is still up in the air right now. Will be some time before any fish.

    Definitely! I'm not a huge fan of the 55g because of how tall they are compared to their depth front to back, but can't beat having a 4 foot tank!

    Very cool, I love anubias!
    And who said you had to keep any fish? There are always shrimp or amphibians!

    What ever did you do with it? That tank sounds cool!

    I currently have one 55 gallon, one 55 gallon hexagon, and one 46 gallon bowfront.
