Okay, to be honest it's not planted.....and it's not scaped. BUT I will be doing both of these once I finish building the stand that I got with it. Until then I will start with the beginning of my story.
So, it all started one day a long long time ago. I found that I like caring for fish and I saw how pretty some setups can be. In high school my parents bought me a 30 gal with stand and a HOB filter. Now I didn't know a pleco from a cory or nitrates from anything, and so as you can assume it didn't go well. I bought neons that didn't last 3 days and gouramis that would last a couple months, but I never really got the hang of it. So I kind of let the tank go and it became overridden with GSA and other horrible things.
Now fast forward a couple years and now I'm in college and found a couple websites that taught me the basics of a planted tank and how to care for it. Armed with my new found knowledge I decided to take a swipe at having and maintaining a planted aquarium. It went well. So well in fact that I started looking at larger tanks in order to have more fish and a prettier aquascape. I bought Filters (XP3, Eheim 2026),A tank (90G) with stand, and substrate (ADA Aquasoil, Eco Complete). All of these items were from craigslist and bought for cents on the dollar literally.
Now this brings me to today. I'm working on finishing the stand (it was only a frame) and once I do that I can begin to scape the tank and add fish. I just recently bought some UG from a person on another website and will put that in once I get it.
So here are some photos.
