Been a while since I posted my tanks in this thread, so here's how my tanks are looking these days:
All tanks are low tech, low light, almost no maintenance. I rely on root tabs and critter waste to fertilize my plants.

40g water sprite goldfish tank with aquaponics on diy in-tank sump.

Thought I'd drop by with an update! I have torn down my 20 gallon (yes, it was 20 gallons, not 29, I'd been lied to) and upgraded to a 55 gallon. Yay!
T5 bulb on 4hr, off 6hr, on 2hr, off 12hr
Eheim 2217 canister filter
Ammonia - 0
Nitrites - 0
Nitrates - <10
pH - 7.2
Hardness - 150
Alkalinity - 120
Temperature - 79F
Anubias nana, anubias petite, anubias congensis
Green gecko crypts
Jungle val (it's still a baby)
Some giant duckweed I'm trying to get to grow
Substrate is about one third medium grade gravel and the rest is pool filter sand
11 adult fancy guppies
1 Candy cane platy
In QT (waiting to put them in display tank):
2 Candy cane platys
8 Red phantom tetras
I would like to add a shoal of cories as well, probably peppered. Would they be okay in here? That's one reason I wanted to include sand in this setup.

My 20g Low Tech Tank!
Have been very inspired by all the beautiful tanks posted on this forum, and wanted to post my first serious 20 gallon tall tank:
Tank:20 gallon tall
Light: Coralife T5 Dual Light (two 6700K bulbs)
Substrate: Mixture of sand and small pebbles
(Can't identify the two tall plants behind the wood and to the right side of the tank. Easy, fast growing plant - if anyone can ID that would be great!)
5 zebra danios
1 albino bristlenose pleco
1 rainbow shark
2 albino cory cats
1 julii cory cat
Flourish Excel every day
Iron and Flourish Comprehensive every other day
Nitrogen and potassium every other day
Flourish root tabs
So far, it seems like everything is going well. I had an issue with hair algae, but cutting back on the lighting have helped a lot. Plan on getting more anubias soon to fill the left corner and maybe another tall plant for the back.
