This is my grow out tank. It will honestly be a shame to move the stuff because it is starting to look good.

Nice to see some new posts. I enjoy looking at all the tanks.
Here's an update shot of mine.

My 56 gallon low tech angels, white clouds and cory cat tank. It was my first planted tank and was a challenge due to the height. It finally has been filling in. I killed a lot of plants till I figured out what worked in this tank. 25% water changed weekly and some leaf zone when I have it.
My 10 gallon redo, waiting for the buce, cameroon moss and fissidens to fill in.
I have pics of my 20 somewhere and will have to dig them up.

I did some more work in my 75 gallon aquarium. This is the old picture that I posted above:
Here I moved the driftwood around a bit, and then added more plants. I added java fern, windlove java fern, and 6 types of bucephandara.
Here's a corner that I really like.
I think the left side of the tank is weakest. I also feel I need a low light background plant, and I was thinking about bolbitus heudelotus (African water fern). In the next few years, I would like the short buces to carpet the two sides of the front of the tank, leaving a clear, rocky area in the front as though it is the bed of a stream. I have a lot of work to do. The main thing is waiting for a lot of this to grow out.

Here's my low tech 55 gallon. Eco-complete with root tabs and liquid CO2.
Getting a bit wild and needs a good trim. I'm thinking about ripping out some of the stem plants completely.

|PEdwards||Planted goldfish tanks are doable as long as you find plants the fish won't eat. Looks like it's going to be a pretty tank. I've always wanted to do a planted goldie tank. Perhaps someday.|

Hi, I worked on this tank for a while then I just let the plants grow for a while. It is mostly anubias because the fish do not care to eat it. The fish have eaten most everything I have planted. It as seachem onyyx, and Carib Sea Rio Grand, as well as many rocks and pieces of mopani. The fish are assorted. The ones that are orange are "foster goldfish" who will be moving on soon.
I am going to get to work on moving things around some. That grass belongs in the back.

That one kept going for about a year total before I ended up moving. With the native plants being seasonal it went through a couple different phases. I only ended up taking pictures of it for the AGA contest though so that's all I've got.
