20 Gallon Walstad Project

Here is my tank contrast from September 2018 to June 2019 for my first planted tank. Substrate is sand over organic potting soil from a local composter. Only one of those original plants is still in the tank! I have learned a lot along the way, and I love being back in aquariums.


PS, I finally realized I should go feed mode (no filters) for still photos.

Looks like you learned difference between true aquarium plants and some of the crap fish stores will try to sell beginners. Seems we all have learn that lesson in the beginning.

Looking good.
