Hey guys, just wanted to share my tank with you! I've had a nice little planted 10 gal running for almost a year now, but had been preparing to upgrade it to a 20 for a while. Finally did this weekend!
The ten was cute, sure. I had kept lots of fish before, but this was my first planted tank. The plants grew. The scape was nice. But this one is a big step up. I'm very pleased with how it turned out and am looking forward to seeing how it as it grows in a bit.

20 gal high tank
Fluval C3 filter
ancient reliable heater, unknown brand
eco-complete for substrate
marineland full spectrum T8 (at least for now, might change it later)
This is a low tech, so the plants are chosen accordingly - about six different varieties of crypt, hygro, anubias, java ferns, java moss, some miscellanous sprigs and clippings of other things.
Current fauna are ember and gold neon tetras, amano shrimp, ghost shrimp (two berried mamas right now!) and mini ramshorn snails
Planning on adding more ember tetras and probably some neon/cardinals, and a school of pygmy cories.
Let me know what you think! I'll try to get some more detailed shots up sometime this week.
