Default 55 gallon "Cheap Tank"

I have set up another tank.

I had a 55 gallon setup as an emersed tank but decided before moving to clean it out in set it up as a real planted tank once I moved. I had (still have) no money to put into this tank so I am letting things kind of just fall into place with this tank.

It has an aquaclear 70 for filtration, and it has a dual T8 shoplight sitting on the glass lid. There is no heater, co2, or fish. I add a bit of ferts every once in a while when I feel like it, and It gets a 20% water change a week. I am trying pool filter sand for the first time with this tank.

Since this tank is new algae such as diatoms are booming. And of course my ever so favorite bladder snails found there way into the tank as well.
