First attempt at a planted tank... here goes nothin
Hello everyone. I'm in the process of setting up my first planted tank, so we'll see how it goes! I just moved into my new house, but my father was very into marine aquariums so I have a bit of experience with dosing and lighting and keeping things alive in general. For right now all I have is substrate and my temporary light, as my plants are still on the way. I took these pictures last night right after I put the water in, so it still looks really cloudy, but it has since cleared up. My plants should arrive soon, and in a couple weeks I'll be ordering more along and getting some fish once the cycle is complete. This journal is as much for me as it is for yall... It'll be nice to see how far I've come, assuming everything works out.
