Well it has been more than a few years since my last true run in the planted tank world, but I'm back at it. My 29 was really flourishing, even more than anything I posted here, until we bought a house and following the move, it just never really got the attention it deserved. So tear down ensued and once I got back to having time after dealing with new home stuff, I set up my 105 Oceanic and got discus again, then came the 40B for Tanganyika shellies, and a 58 Oceanic with mixed Tangankians. Last tank I have done was my 29 nano reef, which with lots of corals is quite satisfying, and my prior experience in planted tanks was quite applicable. Anyhow, on to the now.
I am still looking into which way I want to take everything(High/Low Tech), as well as some equipment so please leave your feedback! Generally I am leaning to the Low/Mid lighting to minimize needing to babysit the tank, plus I have always had a soft spot for Crypts, Anubias and Fissidens.
