Bah's crazy journal'o'tanks 56k, new pics 10/31 new beginning.

So, I'm pretty new to the hobby, I have had betta's and small fish tanks when I was younger but nothing recently or bigger then 10 gallons heh, and I'm hooked, I have had the 56g up and running since January~ and the shrimp tank running for a few weeks now, planted for roughly a week.

20 Gallon long Shrimp house
Filter: Fluval 105 canister filter with sponge adapter. (40 dollars brand new! score, got it from a going out of business sale)
Lighting: Coralife 65w 6700k pc
Substrate: 1 bag floramax, 1/2 bag flourite
Heater 100w
Co2: Diy co2... NOW PRESSURIZED

Plants
Anubias Nana, Anubias Petite,
Crypto parva, Glosso (Because I love going insane planting this), Hygrophila corymbosa 'Kompakt', Java Moss, Tiger Lotus, Green Temple (Hygrophilia corymbosa) < I believe that's what it is the last one at least, that's what i ordered lol.

Empty:



Planted:


Left side:




Right side+ Glosso




Will post updates when everything starts growing, these are roughly a week old and glosso is starting to spread out already, and lotus's are starting to sprout stuff. 56g coming in next post

56 gallon
Filter: Fluval 305
Lighting: Coralife 2x65w 6700k
Co2: Pressurized

Fishies
4 Discus
1 lonely neon tetra (Long story)
2 yoyo loaches (The reason why growing glosso in this tank was a joke, I planted 3 different batches and he got every last one of them up)
2 kuhli loaches
2 peacock gudgeon
2 German blue rams (breeding pair will be moved into a separate tank shortly)
8 Panda catfish
3 ghost shrimp ()

I will get back to you on the plant list, I don't even remember what is in there, bought the plants from a local pet shop rather than from online so i don't have a clear list and they weren't all bought at once.

These are the oldest i have, after rescaping once~ and trimming a bunch of plants/getting rid of.

Failed glosso attempt #3, loaches are lucky they are funny

2 of the more overgrown pics before teardown, and one of my discus


Rescaped! new driftwood! new graval path my fiance did! (she's just as hooked as I am)


And Mr. T!


And this is what our dog thinks of our new hobby! Ready!

Currently I only have 2 CRS and 1 CBS in the shrimp tank but they seem to be liking it thus far. Thanks for the reply

Any advice/tips are greatly appreciated

Update: Shrimp should be here Friday, 2 dozen CRS, and 1 dozen bee shrimp.
Glosso is starting to grow/spread runners and my tiger lotus bulbs are all sprouting leaves and roots out, although I believe one may be green out of the three (I only payed for two red so a free green not complaining.)

Got a bit further on the rack today, anybody know of a good substrate for plants that is inexpensive. (for multiple tanks, can't stomach spending 30+ dollars on each bag when I'll need several)
