My very first aquarium

Hi everyone,

this aquarium has been running for 2 years and few months now(got it in Jan 2010). I finally decided to start my journal,about time right,lol.
it's nothing fancy, looks more like jungle. i replanted it few times over the time, i know it looks noobish even after the two years i had it, i just like it that way. i have learned a lot from it though, especially about the plants and their needs, i have been growing low to mid light plants. had trouble when i was using that aqueon 15w light that came with the kit, last year i finally got better light and it helped a lot and recently i have started using fertilizers and that's even better. and i have to thank this forum(YOU GUYS) for a lots of ideas!!!i also have a 10g tank, which is housing swordtail fry and some plants as well(i'll make another journal about it too later on).i want to go bigger so im currently looking for a larger tank - i'd love to have more fish and plants(it's addicting as all of you know ). i guess that's all i have to say for now. i'll be glad for any comments....
