We started our planted tank journey a few weeks ago, so I thought this might be a good time to get our journal started!
Oct 9-13, 2016
We purchased a 40 breeder and used pine stand from our LFS. Then ordered basic test kits, filtration, light, and other basics from amazon. Two driftwood pieces were purchased from another LFS.
Oct 13, 2016
Everything arrived today so we decided to get the hard scape done and put water in the tank. One piece of drift wood still floats (the other is attached to slate).

We have been dosing stability, so today we bought our first plants and fish. We plan to only plant the left side of the tank for now, until the other piece of drift wood sinks. We have anubius Nana narrow leaf and foxtail (I think). Current fish are 8 harlequin rasbora.

Added 24 neon tetras today!

We boiled the driftwood a few days ago and finally got it to sink, so today we added more plants. Crypt Wendtii, amazon sword, and crypt ludea.
