55gallon (1st) planted tank [was:Hi! (56K Warning!) *Fixed*]


Hi All,

I'm new to this forum. I'm hoping to learn a lot from the planted tank Masters.
Anyway this is my 1st official hello and my 1st try to post pictures from my 1st planted tank.
This tank was setup 2 months ago & planted two days ago.

Enjoy!
(Thanks hubbahubbahehe, for sharing these Hygro, Parrot Feather, etc.)

Last update:
I tried to direct link to images on other hosts, but failed.
I will give link to a pbase gallery instead.

You can see them here:
Pics

Reason to change title:
2nd planted tank coming soon!

Looking good, you've got a nice start there. Keep this updated, I can't wait to see how it looks after it has filled in a bit.

Wow, I get my first props on the forum! Thank you for the "thanks." May your tank be blessed for years to come!

By the way, awesome job on the diy hood. You didn't tell me you were a handy man!

Ooh craps!
Looks like my host doesn't like how I direct-linking to the images!
Sorry about that... I'll fix it tonight.

Any idea where I can store this pics and direct-link to them freely?
