1st attempt at a planted tank


After doing saltwater for a while, I could not afford it, so I converted to the planted tank scene. I set this little 5.5 on a whim, with no theme in mind at all, but so far I do really enjoy it. Just figured I would get a little more involved with the forum by putting my first tank on.

Planning on doing a 2.5 rcs tank as well as a larger tank (30 gallons) in the near future

I like the driftwood, it's a solid start! Looking forward to updates.

Do you plan on adding more plants? I think some moss on that wood would look nice.

Yes I am planning on adding more to it as I have more time/knowledge of planted tanks. Hoping to get a piece of driftwood for my bigger tank as soon as it's set up, going to try the same style hopefully, just less cluttered

Any ideas of what plants? Anubias, ferns, mosses are easy to grow plants.
