Low-tech 40 breeder community tank
HEY TPT USERS!
Ive had plants in some of my previous tanks but never kept a fully planted aquarium. Recently have decided I love this look and cant wait to setup my 40 breeder into an awesome community tank.
Im in the planning stages now with the beginning of the build starting mid august. Here is my current plan as far as full tank setup, planting plans, and fish stocking. Im always looking for suggestions and guidance. If you see anything you would recommend changing feel free to throw your advise in the comments.
As this build progresses I will update its status as often as I can, I will also update pictures.
You can follow this tanks progress on Instagram as well. @40bplantedmadness
