Karce87's first 55g - Branches of life


A long time lurker here. This forum has helped me a lot so I decided to share some of the picture of one of my tanks. This is my first 55g.

Lights: 2x 54W T5HO for 9 hours
Pressurized Co2 with inline diffuser, on and off with the light
Air pump on for 12 hours after Co2 turns off
Substrate: Eco complete and aquarium sand
Filter: Eheim 2213


Here is a FTS of the tank


A shot of the left side of the tank


Ottos hanging out on the tree. I love these guys. So cute and playful.


A shot at the HC


Any comment is welcome.

Is the tree all Anubias or does it also have moss? That should be pretty interesting as it grows out.

That is just a piece of DW that I got randomly from a seller. It happens to have so many branches so I looked into how to resemble a real tree. I was considering xmas moss and fissiden but I wanted something that would not cover the foreground from light as well because I had an HC carpet. SO I picked anubias petite
