29 gallon, and current 55 gallon

Here are two of my plant tanks. The 29 gallon was taken down a few months ago for a move, and majority of the plants were transfered to my store plant tanks.

29 gallon - retrofitted eclipse hood, roughtly 90 watts of light
- Carbo Block unit
- standard aquarium gravel
- Powerhead
- pardon the algae...this tank was underkept, and sort of grew like a jungle.

55 Gallon - 48" 260 Watt CF Aqualight
- half Eco Complete / Half Standard aquarium gravel
- Carbo Block Unit - (working to get a real co2 unit soon)
- 2 Powerheads w/quick filters

The recent addition of Riccia has gotten me excited...this tank will probably look very different in a few months. The is a display tank @ Union Aquarium in Schenectady, NY. I work there part time...i couldn't afford to buy this for myself.

Nice tanks! It's hard to believe the bottom tank's a 55 gallon. Those plants are HUGE! Also, the 29 gallon looks nice as a "jungle".

Thanks Darla, i've just aquascaped the 55 gallon by taking out the large amazon sword in the center lefthand side of the tank. I'm going to create more of a riccia lawn, and let the large driftwood and large Ozelette swords balance things out...i'm excited.
