I have been fish keeping for a year now, stuck with simple plants and mainly focused on my breeding skills (angelfish, blue rams, zebra danios, neon tetras, blue gouramis, platies, guppies, ghost shrimp, etc.) But I have been waiting for the chance to make a gorgeous planted tank, and i got my hands on my buddies 75 gallon tank with stand for $40 last month! That was my calling to start getting all the pieces to setup a planted tank. SO I started light, substrate, fertilizer, uv sterilizer, etc shopping like crazy. Got everything i needed and placed my order for the plants and they are arriving tomorrow from fedex one day shipping
