55g Low Maintenence Tank Starter

Well, I figured its probably time to start journaling the begginings of my 55 gallon tank and get the timeline and going. Ive been out of the aquarium hobby scene for many years and just started back up new again with my first venture into planted tanks.

Setup as of 4/13/11

The Equipment:

55 gallon tank
Rena Smartheater 200w
Rena Xp3 Canister filter
Jaggedfury's Option 3 paintball Co2 System on GLA's atomic Co2 diffuser
48 inch T5HO 4x54w (216w total power)
Black Sand as substrate


Java Moss (Microsorum pteropus)
Java Fern (Taxiphyllum barbieri)
