Hello everyone my name is Hector. I used to be big into the aquarium world. I have a 65 gallon tank I am looking to get started up again. I am very interested in making it a planted tank this time.

The last time I had the tank running everything just randomly died on me overnight. It had been running perfectly for about a year and I just gave up on it. I only had a couple basic fish in it. I think it was like 2 guppies and like 2 platies.

Currently the tank is about 1/4 full of old water and it still has like 4 plants that have not died! I am planning on putting them in a 5 galling bucket with some of the substrate they are in and water and then starting the tank all over again. Hopefully I can get a pretty sweet looking planted tank going by the end of this year
