Default Nature Aspired 40Breeder

Hi first off my name is Marcin and its time to post the progress of my tank. Ive been mostly reading very little posting and this site/forum has been the biggest help. Ive been fishkeeping for few years but fell in love with aquascaping about 2years ago. I started of with 20 long, then i got this 40 breeder. I went with mts and dsm for about 3 weeks. Im gonna post some pics from beginning since the tank is already 3 months old.
This is how it started





I will post more pics and details tomorrow since its very late but i wanted to start the journal. Goodnight

Really COOL scape!

Your plants have filled in great!

I really LOVE the 40B size tank! Great depth, front to back, along with good width, and just high enough to get a good scape going, but not to tall to need super strong lights! Add to the fact you can get them for $40 at Petco's $1 per gallon sale, and it is a WIN-WIN!

GREAT job so far, and can't wait to here all about it!

Thank you for kind words. @ bleeker, I think it looks better in person im only using point and shoot camera but that's the case for most tanks. Cameras have troubles catching all the details people put in their tanks
