Starting my 1st planted tank
Hi everyone! I am new around here and to forums. I currently own 19 fish tanks, two of which have a little val grass and moss, and a few other plants people have thrown in on ebay orders recently. Seeing how these plants have effected the aquariums and fish, I have decided I want to start an all plant aquarium with cherry shrimp, snails and as a holding tank for baby angelfish.
My reason for cherry shrimp, snails and baby angelfish is because after a year of tring to have baby angelfish from my pair of Koi's, I tried a funny thing 3.5 weeks ago: I threw in about 8 free swimming angelfish fry into my cherry shrimp tank!! This tank has been up and running for about 8 months, has christmas moss, a couple vals pink ramshorns and ohhh I forget the name but gold dotty pond looking snails. Iv tried everything to raise angelfish eggs and fry. And low and behold they lived in this tank!!! So I want to make a larger replica but add loads of more plants.
Its kinda of an experiment, I am no expert. I just love aquariums! Im an old school fish tank hobbyist, I am just learning all the new stuff out there, I have no clue whats what, I just love aquariums. I spend a pretty penny on them and fish. So help me out with this new tank and lets see what happens!
My 60gal PLANTED TANK SO FAR:
A SPONGE FILTER, And corner filter with established bio from 10gallon shrimp tank.
AN ISLAND OF ROCKS (PIC LATER ) when i learn how lol..
And just today added pool filter sand.
Ordered a canister filter on ebay today.
No light yet, Tank infront of large bay window.
No heat yet.
So that's the start of my planted tank!
