First Planted Tank, Three Month Reflection

Hi Plantedtank world,

Rather than write an introduction post I thought I would begin by telling the tale of my first planted tank, and the joys and woes that have befell me over the course of my first three and a half months.

My idea with this post, hopefully series of posts, is to show where I am now and then go back to the start and describe the road I traveled to arrive where I am now. I've made just about every beginner mistake possible and have learned heaps along the way. I hope to share my lessons, mistakes and triumphs with you all, and in turn, get some pointers, input and help form the community here.

About the concept and the tank: I've always loved aquariums but due to occupation and live circumstances hadn't been able to get one until this fall. I bit the bullet and bought a six gallon fluval edge. I've since changed just about everything to do with the tank and have ended up with the attached photos. In my next post, I'll be talking about my first weeks with the tank and the glory and error that comes with a first planted tank.
