This is a tank that has been in a classroom for probably ten years. I cleaned it up about two years ago, but have only recently added more fish and planted it. The Cabomba is used for Biology practicals, we had about 15 - 16 surplus plants, so I whacked it in the tank, where it seem to be fine.

The tank is approximately 220 - 230L, is lit by a 42" High Output Tropical Arcadia strip and filtered by two Duetto DJ100 two-stage filters. There are probably 20 - 25 plants, but the only species I know is Cabomba.

The fish are two Red Platy, one Kissing Gourami, ten Neon Tetra, One Peppered Cory, two Green Cory, one African Glass Catfish (P. buffei) and two Glowlight Tetra.

This is the first real planted tank I've attempted, although I'm trying to tart up a 125L Rio tank with 3 comets intent on destroying every plant that goes in I also have a 30L Fancy and Apple snail tank at home.

How's the tank looking now? Has it matured? Is it still in the classroom, or at home now?

125 gallon planted community of white clouds, gouramis, dojo loaches and a pleco. 55 gallon angel tank that the pleco won't let me plant. 30 gallon surprise pacu, who also won't let me plant. 30 gallon hex livebearers, moderately planted.
