Dino's Aquapolis

Hey guys, after lurking around this forum for about ~7 months, I finally mustered up the courage to make a journal about my aquariums :D
Now before I get started, I must tell you that I am a total noob at planted tanks (only in low-teens). Don't hesitate to give me tips, tricks, feedback, and what not. I just got into this hobby 7 months ago (after I accidentally stumbled upon this site) and have been hooked (no pun intended) ever since.

1st tank
Size - 20 Gallons
Filter - AquaClear 30
heater - name?
CO2 - None, might try DIY yeast method
Substrate - Floramax
Parameters - (tested with some cheapo petsmart all-in-one-strips)
pH ~7.5-7.8
Nitrates ~ 0
Nitrites ~ 0

Fauna -
6 Neon Tetras
6 Porkchop Rasboras
2 Glowlight Tetras
1 Male Betta

Flora -
Rotala Indica
Java Moss
Some type of Amazon Sword
Wisteria


PICTURES!









will post info on other tank soon...

hey dino great job for your first tank! welcome to the forum.

my only comment is you may want a bigger filter if and when your plant and fishass increase.

i only say this because part of the joy i have in this hobby is getting new plants and fish! lol good luck!
