70 Gallon Low Light Community Tank Journal

I had this tank set up in a 75 gallon for a long time, but I could never get it to look right and my plants were not doing well, so I switched everything over into my 70 gallon tall and things have been doing great.

Substrate: Miracle Grow organic potting soil and Pea Gravel

Lighting: 2 WPG

Plants: Various Swords, Java Fern, and Anubias, Jungle Vals, and floating Moneywort

Fish: Turquoise Rainbows, Boesmani Rainbows, Dwarf Praecox Rainbows, Cories (CW-21), Bolivian Rams, Hongsloi, Festivum, SAE's, BN Pleco, Albino BN Pleco, King Tiger Pleco, & Pelvicachromis Taeniatus.

Ferts: Flourish and Flourish Iron (dose weekly)



Anyways, let me know what you think. I am open to feedback!

It has water, fish, plants I love it.
My 55g soil sub is only a couple of months old and still settling in with a flourite cap and no dosing to date. Did you add new soil when you changed tanks? Looks really good!

Thanks I didn't have soil when I had it in the 75 gallon. I decided to try it out, and when I moved everything it was the perfect opportunity for me to add it in. So far, I am loving it though!
