60g tall update


Figured I'd post an update on my tank as it's been a few months. No c02. Finnex ray2. No ferts. And dirted. This is a zero maintenance tank, no water changes.

This was when it was first planted 3 months ago.


Flower from my Amazon sword? Its been like that for a few day, wondering if it's gonna bloom. Or if it's even a flower?
Enjoy, feel free to ask questions on stock and such.

That only add up to 45 gallon. Are you sure it isn't 36"x 24 x 18?

Tank really looks good thanks for sharing it with us!! Love the sword plant you will find that as time goes on you will be trimming it al the time.

I think you're right, 36 sounds about right. And thanks! And sadly I'll be tearing it down in a few months cause I'm moving. Just another excuse to rebuild though.

Wow, really nice! I hope my tanks grow in like that. What is that red bushy plant-it looks like it is floating?

The amazon sword was sold to me as just a regular old amazon sword, could be something different though. I've never been much to keep up on all the crazy plant names. The name of red one that looks like its floating escapes me at the moment. But its one of my favorites. Near the base of the tank (where its rooted) its green, but near the top where its getting a lot more direct like from the ray2 it's red. Love it!
