55 Gallon Grassy Tank

I've had this tank up for over a year but about 6 months ago rescaped with a few sprigs of sag it's low tech no co2 no ferts

Tank: 55g
Filter: Eheim Ecco Pro 2234 & Sunsun 303
Lighting: 1 single plant 6500k florescent bulb
Substrate: River pebbles and Sand
Hardscape: Driftwood Pieces
Sag... and not sure what else lol
1 Gold Angelfish
1 Gold Gourami
1 Blue Gourami (the fish that got me started over 2 years ago)
2 Platinum Gourami
1 Opaline Gourami
1 Pearl Gourami
3 BN Pleco 2"
5 Clown Loaches
1 HiFin Pleco

Overstocked but the loaches are still small and I have a 125g coming in the next 6 months or so.

I like it!, it looks very natural. Also I like the fact that the majority of your fish have kick stands

I used to have fish tanks. Now I have plant tanks.

Lol yea I really like the natural look, and all the fish but the pleco's, are very personable and come to see us when we walk up to the tank, most of them take food from my hands.

it does look natural.

great loach pic too.

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.
