I started my first planted tank earlier this year. I've had plants in tanks before, but this is the first time that it has been about the plants rather than the fish.
I've done a fair bit of reading on this site, but only just signed up, so I figured I would post what I have done so far (the pictures are a bit blurry).
It started off like this:
Then grew a bit:
I then re-shuffled things and added a bit more petrified wood:
Moved the hair grass from the corners to the middle:
and here it is as of the other day:
Its pretty full. Everything grows really fast. I trim most of the plants weekly, but I should maybe be a little more aggressive as it is very bushy in there.
I was thinking of maybe changing the wisteria for something else because it is filling up heaps of room, but the shrimp seem to like it in there so I am a little reluctant.
It has a bit of algae, but nowhere near as bad as a few weeks ago when I had a 4th light.
