Justin's first planted tank

After a long break from the hobby I recently dove back in. Starting off small, I picked up a Fluval Spec V to try my hand at a planted tank. Its been running for about two months now and I am pretty pleased with the resluts so far. Im still using the stock light as of now, Flora Max substrate, and API CO2 booster.

Looks great. Keeping the stock light is good as it allows you to avoid excessive algae problems and also forces you to stick to slower growing low light plants. If I had to do it all over again, I would've started with a low light set-up. It helps build confidence.
