One month after setting up my first planted tank.

I've always wanted to have a planted tank, so after much research and a ton of YouTube videos this is what I have now! Still planning on adding a rock (Hence the empty space next to my drift wood) but haven't found the perfect one yet!

It's a 29g, my hubby keeps laughing at me cause I'm constantly looking at my tank lol! Its been a lot of fun!!

I'm looking into a new lighting fixture, what I have now is really not good enough. My plants seen to be doing ok so far, but I want a red plant in there and I know you need higher lighting so that's next in my to do list!

Very nice setup! Do you have any specs on the tank, ie. filtration, fish, plant list?

Sure It's a 29g with just your standard HOB penguin filter, I do weekly 25% water changes

Plants: water wisteria, staurogyne repens, bacoba, rosaefolia, saggiteria, Anubis Nana, crypt lucens, red tiger lotus and Rituals nanjenshan (which are not doing so good )

Fish: 2 ottocinclus catfish, 2 bladder snails, 1 shrimp, 6 male endlers Guppies, 5 harliquin rasboras, 1 dwarf gourami, 2 pearl gouramis male and female.

Saving up to redo my lighting going to get a glass top and some good fluorescents
🙂
