Pictures...finally! First planted tank EVAR


Hey all, I'm finally posting up some pictures of my first ever planted tank. I started it up on the first of the year, and it's changed soooooooo much. Low-tech at the moment. I'm waiting on the semester to end before I experiment with CO2 and EI dosing. I'm using liquid carbon and Kent plant growth booster at the moment.

Here's a current full tank shot!

I love that Jungle Val! I took one of them out of the tank the other day and it was taller than my girlfriend!

This is a fts I took a while ago.


This is a plant that I have no idea what it is! I was told by the LFS that it's sunset hygrophila, but I have my doubts. If you look at the old fts posted right before this, you can see it in the right foreground. That's what I started with.

Very nice, what size tank is that?

Also to the plant in question... Almost looks like ludwigia repens but the leafs look a little to long

Great looking tank! I'm low tech and impatiently waiting for mine to fill in. It gives me hope to see such lush low tech tanks.

I usually consider myself a patient man, but it's rough when you just wanna see everything jungle up. Liquid carbon and kent accelerator have definitely helped me out. If you look at my old FTS with the foreground plant at the right, and my new FTS with the same plant between the two swords, that's about two months difference. Not to mention half the stems from that one are planted behind my DW cause I'm waiting for them to get tall.

Careful with the liquid carbon. Inverts don't like overdoses, and some plants (vals, mostly) don't like the stuff at all.

Wow, you have a really beautiful tank. Your plants looks healthy. May I know how big is your tank and how many watts is your lighting?

The length created by the scape I would have thought it was a bookshelf tank not a 55, very nice job indeed!!
