Talking Back from the dead with a complete restart on my 29g.

So after having a new baby who just turned two in March and loosing my fertilizers while moving in to our very 1st home. I am now ready to restart the planted aquarium hobby with my 29 gallon.Here is a picture of if after much neglect and before any changes.


I swapped the bulb for an 88k bulb, substrate, and change to another 29 gallon with the back painted black. The aquarium in the first pic just had a trash bag on the back which really brought out the water stains that got between the trash bag and the aquarium.

Tank specs as of now-
Lighting- 96 watt pc fixture with an 88k bulb @ 8hrs a day.
Substrate- Soilmaster select charcoal with light bottom dusting of peat and potash.
#5 Co2 system on a timer (Needs to be refiled).

Fertilizer will have to be re-reordered because I placed an order with Rex Griggs before checking to see if he was still active. I just filed a claimed with paypal yesterday, so I hope it doesn't take too long.

I still need a lot more plants but I am on a very tight budget right now, so they will be placed as I get/afford them.This was done this past Monday (6/4/12).

Pictures-






Picture from the next day.
