Silky's 90 gallon Planted Discus Tank
So, I decided to go with live plants in my 90 gallon tank after moving accross the country and setting it back up. I knew nothing about planted tanks and had no idea what I was in store for either. The one things I'm glad I did was buy a decent substrate before topping it with gravel.
I ended up buying a mixture of aquatic plants and a bunch of bog plants that I bought thinking they were true aquatic plants. After alittle research and then anger, those were removed. I read up on C02, ended up making my own DIY CO2, bought another light fixture for 2 more cheap T8 bulbs on the tank after reading 1 single T8 wasn't going to grow even the hardiest plants. Then came the fertz and liquid carbon and everything else. The tank is at about 1 watt per gallon now.
Well 2 months into it, I'm fully addicted to my tank and I've already bought a used 55 and 25 gallon that I've resealed and looking forward to setting up more planted tanks! Anyways, here's my tank over the last 2 months.
