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.
