Silky's Java fern & Crypt 55 gallon Planted Tank

This is my 3rd planted tank I've set up since I got into this...5 months ago... This tank sits on my office, all the plants in it are from clippings from my other 2 tanks. It's like my hand-me-down tank.

Angels have laid eggs again. I may try to actually raise this batch. Sometime around a week-week 1/2 the parents eat the fry. Thinking about removing the parents after the young hatch. They are laying eggs about 4-5 days after the last doomed batch is eaten.

Was gone for almost 3 months, wife is charge of tanks, came back all crypts were melted away. Took out wood, crypts slowly coming back. Tanks has become sad to look at lol. Trying to figure out what I want to do with it, including removing about half my angels who are outgrowing this tank.

I used to have fish tanks. Now I have plant tanks.
