I’ve been visiting this site often for months, but haven't started a thread about my own tank. I have posted a few times seeking advice, have chipped in when I think I have something to offer, but have mostly just read and learned. The information has been invaluable, and I thank everyone here for the wealth of knowledge available here.
Let me say I consider mine a fish tank with plants, not a planted tank with fish. I absolutely love the Dutch scapes here, and marvel at how people create those underwater magical worlds. Just baffles me how they do it. Some are really artists, and I wish I had that vision (and knowhow).
I have been keeping aquariums for over 30 years, so at least as far as fish goes, I do know what has worked for me, and hopefully have something to offer there.
Now to the tank, it’s a 120G (60”Lx18”Dx26”H) Rainbow fish tank. I’ve kept low tech planted for many years, and then late last year I decided to add pressurized CO2 and get more serious about plants.
My plan is to add details about the tank over time, and describe how I got to where the tank is today.
So to start, here's a link to a video of where the tank is today, and a couple of pics of how it's progressed since I started this new phase.
