First (sort of) attempt at a planted tank. Tank is pretty bare right now, I have a shipment of a few plants on the way and will be going on a hunt for more driftwood soon ( I live in the thumb of Michigan driftwood is easy to find haha)
sorry photos are kind of crappy, uploading everything from phone right now.
Filter-Penguin bio wheel 150 hob
Lighting- 2 24" coralife t5ho fluorescent bulbs (accidentally ordered 24" fixture instead of 30" but I hung the fixture anyway so it all worked out hahaa) May add co2 in the future if I find I need it
Substrate- 15 lbs original fluorite, 20 lbs eco-complete black, some old "natural" colored gravel from previous tank and appx. 1 lb of white aquarium stones I had never gotten around to using.
Decor- driftwood I found kayaking in Fla Last year, two rocks (the "cave") from our garden I've been using in tanks for a few years now
Fauna- 11 WCMM, 7 little rummynose tetras and 1 johnny darter. The tetras are new, everyone else I've had for a about a year.
Flora- a small portion of some java moss I've had, an aponogeton bulb of some sort that has just recently come back to life and I'm not really sure what the other plant is, I got some from my sisters bf (it had taken over half of his tank hahaa) and he couldn't remember what it was. I've tried to identify it I'm thinking dwarf hygro maybe? I just have it floating around right now not sure where I want it yet.

My little aponogeton sprouting back to life Lol crappy pics
So this is just the beginning phase! I will be working on adding a lot more excitement to the tank in the near future as far as plants and hardscaping goes! Any advice/comments on planting ideas etc is totally welcome, thank you
