First Planted Tank 55g


I have had fish for a while, then I found the true beauty of aquatic plants on this site.
I bought this tank and stand used on craigslist, got some of the scratches out and filled it with substrate and water. So I got some plants at the petsore, some swords and some flourish

Then I added co2 and raised my light


I just took out all the fake stuff and added some ludwigia

Your Planted Tank

Hello Evan...

Your tank is beautiful! Very well done. I'm a real fan of 55 Gs. I have several. My tanks are very unconventional. I'm mostly into experimenting with plants and liquid ferts to see what grows in low light. Attached in a pic I took a few weeks ago of one of my "crazy" tanks.

Above all, have fun!
