Mrs. W's 55 gallon

Okay so it was my 55 had it set up and running when I was single.
Got married 3 years ago and moved it to the In laws "spa room" it wasn't taken care of very well. Yes my fault. So now me and the Mrs.'s have our own house and a room dedicated to fish. She's the one who suggested it be the fish room. And after one year here she's tired of the fish room only having one tank. So I have decided that she will have a planted tank. But she wants it to look nice I need to pug read my stand. still need to enclose the sides and mount the magnets to hold the front pices in place the finish ordering the stuff for the led lights

Looks like you've got quite a project still ahead of you! Your first picture reminds me of some of the first shots of my planted 55. Was this a planted tank when it was running prior? Good Luck finishing your stand! I've got a stand build in my future for a large multiple tank stand!

Nice. I've done well with that kind of medium tech tank. I've always tried to get my low tech 55 as high light as I could without adding co2.

Well waiting on parts need to send a note to a place I lived 4 years ago so that the parts don't get sent back.
