jelisoners 29 journal PIC HEAVY!!!

Ok i started this out in a multiple tank journal but decided to confine each tank in 1 journal all new additions will be pic heavy as I got a new camera and love taking pics now

I bought this tank about 8 months ago being a noob to aquariums i overstocked it and under filtered it witch in turn I lost all my ryukins/orandas i had the typical clown puke and a few plants thrown in there then after tearing the tank down I found this forum and read till my eyes hurt

heres my first few pics with the tank painted and the driftwood i had got for it (wasnt usable since it was soft wood) it was ugly anyway lol

eco complete substrate
4x 20 watt 6700 t8 ge bulbs in some cheap walmart fixtures that have no reflectors at all it looked gheto
1 hob filter and a sponge filter
heres a few pics of my first planting

Heh, I liked your first scape. And when you said, 'I didn't like this one at all!' I was like, "Omg, you are CRAZY!" But you know... I like your new scape better.

Good job!
