I started this tank in January and I used this forum for a lot of my research and planning, so I thought I would post up a Journal for my return to planted tanks. I'll be moving houses in August, so I wanted to start up a small tank that would be easily transported. I don't have a whole lot of time to dedicate to maintenance on the tank, so the idea was to keep easier, slower-growing plants. Ive always loved the island style aquascapes, so thats what I went for.
