Redone my 125

Hey guys, here's my newly redone 125. It's a low tech, still in the works tank. I've had this tank for 3 years or so now and have never been happy with it.

Went through my discus phase and my pool filter sand. The discus were great and I've still got 2 good sized ones, but as much as we're gone, they're too much work.

So I've redone with black diamond blasting sand, and added more lights. Since adding 2 extra lights, my plants are looking to be doing much better.

My Java fern and Amazon swords are doing terrible though. I'm dosing thrive as well as root tabs. I'll be getting a GLA Pressurized c02 system during Christmas more than likely, so hopefully that will help.

Still not 100% happy with the tank, but here's the before with pfs and current with black diamond! Click image for larger version
