I've had my tank about 4 months now. We moved into a new house that already had a 3 ft tank. That's what started my obsession.
I wanted a bigger tank so we went to petco and bought the 55 gallon kit. (My first mistake ). Since I'm new I didn't know anything about cycling, plants, subtract... so I bought the kit, set it up, got some fish, and they all died. I have slowly over the last 4 months done research, made mistakes and bought tons of more fish, make mistakes, then kill them again. Since my fish are surviving now, I've decided to really try for a planted aquarium. So I'm starting this journal.
My tank before I started going for a more planted setup
My new lights
A verity pack of plants
My light arrived the other day
New lights on tank
My first setup attempt, but the paint started to peal away from the pots
Tonight I went to walmart and got sea shells and glued them to some pots and a crate
My setup at the moment
Hopefully tomorrow my plants will come in and I can finish it. I still have some shells and rocks left over
