Somewhat South American and the other one

I know I won't be able to maintain two separate threads so both my tanks will be here.

I'm moving at the end of this week so they should be set-up by the next.

The 55 gallon was my son's turtle tank until an accident happened so now I plan on turning it into a planted tank.

The 15 gallon was my nps reef tank which I'm switching with my Betta bowl.

The 55
Equipment
Light will be cheap full spectrum leds (might give it my saltwater t5 quad)
Sunsun canister filter with uv (don't know how well the uv works)
Paintball co2 setup soon (just need a new valve)
200w heater (soon hydor inline)


Flora
For now just low light
Ferns, crypt, moss
Dwarf lettuce

Fauna
I have white clouds now from the turtle but I think I want to switch them out for a schooling tetra of some kind (not neons/cardinals)
A decent group of marble hatchet
Pair of German rams
And some type of display fish (possibly dwarf gourami?)

15 gallon
Equipment
Light beamswork 30"
Filter will be a surface skimmer/pump off eBay
Neotherm slim 100w heater
Paintball co2

Flora
I'm thinking of doing a mini Dutch
Not set on plants yet

Fauna
Just the Betta and a few otos

Mostly moved in. I have the 15 gallon setup and collecting plants for both tanks but the 55 and 75 are still at the old house.

Moved the 55 and have it somewhat scaped. I originally was planning a South American biotope but the son wanted to keep the mollies (they will end up in the Saltwater sooner or later). I do still have White clouds from the turtle in the tank too. Bought 15 neons and think I'll get 15 more in a couple days. Waiting for java fern and a few more anubias. The 15 gallon got a rescape after taking out the plants for the 55, need to figure out what to do with it. Next getting the Saltwater moved and the fish/corals back in the tank.

That's just natural sunlight. I only have my phone for pictures.

Here's an updated picture of the 55. It now has 30 neons and 5 otos (soon a bit more).

Can't believe it's only been a month with the tanks.

One month in
