Frist 55gal Back in the day [56k]

I thought this might be fun to share.
This was my first planted tank ever, back in '01-'03 it was my learning tank for a long time.
Started with 2x80W NO, DIY CO2
Later 4x80W NO, pressurized CO2 minimal ferts
Boreing gravel with substrate ferts.
HOB filters

Some of the images are on a tight timeline, weeks/month apart, some are 6months apart. I can't remember exactly but I came across this today and thought it might be fun.
A lot of learning went along with this tank, it has since been retired for a long time now since I have set up my last show tanks high-tech with better lighting and real ferts.

Sorry for poor res but photobucket really limits that. And I didnt want to UL 11photos just for this thread
