Great tank!! Thats the exact road I want to go down. I'll have to shop around for a big log like that. No local shop around beside Petco and they dont have much selection.

Nebbie Here and Need some help

Interested in running a basic planted tank with some fish. Would like to stay away from CO2 if possible

Heres what I have:
- 30 gal Tank
- Fluval 405 Canister Filter
- Heater, lights and ect...


What I would like:
- Plants that can survive with out CO2 injection
- Black substrate (would consider others)
- Rocks
- wood
- Fish that wont eat the plants

Not sure where to start as in best substrate (rock, soil?), plant and fish combination. I want colorfull...As in black base, bright green plants (full looking) and a few colorful fish to make it pop and fish that wont eat or dig up the plants

If you need more info or links to other tanks I have seen to see what I am looking to end up with please let me know.

7. Like the tree
