My 75 and 25 low tech dirted tanks

This is my first planted tank journal, I have had my 25 setup for about 8 months and has been dirted for 4 months I had eco complete before that and didn't seem to do the job.

My 75 was a birthday present from my mom. I didn't believe I would be getting another tank after the 25, but I convinced her. I got the tank in late august, and has been up and running for 3 weeks.

Plants for 25:
- Crypt wendtii green gecko
- Anubias nana
- Dwarf sag
- Ludwigia repens
- Limnopholia Sessofloria
- Amazon Sword
- Water wisteria
- Star grass
- Rotala rotundifolia

Plants for 75:
- Star grass
- Water wisteria
- Rotala rotundifolia
- Amazon sword
- Ludwiga Repens x arcuta
- Hygrophilia tiger
- Crypt wendtii bronze

Fish for 25:
- 8 Bloodfin tetras
- 10 Black neon tetras
- 8 pygmy corys
- 4 amano shrimp
Will be adding one German blue ram pretty soon.

Fish for 75:
- 10 pristella tetras
- 2 shwartzi corys (others died after shipment)

Will be getting 20 rummynose tetras, 5 more pristellas, 2 silver pearsclae angles, 4 german blue rams, either 6 more shwartzi corys or 12 panda corys.

Equipment for 25:
- Aquaclear 50 with purigen
- 100w heater
- Coralife T5 28w light fixture with 2 7500k bulbs

Equipment for 75:
- Rena xp3 canister filter
- Home depot shoplight 64 watt with two 7500k bulbs
