30L 1st Tank

This is the first tank I have ever done I've had a lot of inspiration from y'alls tanks. I want a pretty heavily planted tank but I'm trying to start small until I learn a little.

This pic was taken on 7-1-12. More to come later as I get more time.

Nice start. I love driftwood and natural looking substrate. What kind of plants do you have.

It's Water Sprite, Amazon Sword, Rotala Indica, and Spritalis Crypt. There is some Java Moss in there as well but I didn't attach it right. There have been more changes since I took out the Indica, it melted just as soon as I put it in there.

I'm going to add more recent pics tomorrow but I've really enjoyed the tank thus far. Trial and error is a common theme here, I guess I have a lot more failures to look forward to.

I removed Indica and planted Cabomba, Ludwigia Repens, Varigated Bacopa, and small Anubius Nana tied to small piece of driftwood. Cabomba grows like crazy but Ludwigia has a weird curl in it. If anyone has any tips on why all the stems have the same weird curl it would be a great help. Sorry for any spelling mistakes.:icon_redf
