20 H First planted tank journal.

Just thought I would start a journal for my 20 gallon high. The tank has been running for approximately one year. It is the standard Marineland 20 H starter kit that had gravel and silk plants. Over time I gained an interest in planted tanks and started researching as much as I could. I read Walstad and Amano books and started slowly buying plants and tank upgrades. Here is where the tank is at now...

Tank: 20 gallon high
Light: Finnex Ray 2 18"
Substrate: Eco-complete
CO2: Pressurized
Filter: Penguin Bio-wheel 150 HOB
Heat: 100 watt
Ferts: Leaf zone, soon to start more advanced dosing

Hardscape: Mopani root

Critters: 5 various platy, 3 Dalmatian Molly, 2 mystery snails, and 10-15 RCS.

Plants: Water wisteria, E. Tenellus, S. Repens, Java Fern, a few pieces of java moss. A couple of stem plants that I think are ludwegia.

Comments and advice welcome!
