15 gallon - the beginnings!

Hello! I am new to the board and am very excited about my newest plant tank. It is not my first, but will most certainly be my best! This one is replacing a 7 gallon bowfront...




From the top...


And my riccia fluitans and microsword that is chillin in a quarantine tank until I get water in the main tank.


More to come on Saturday!

Thanks, Wasserpest!
I finally was able to get the old seven gallon switched over to the new 15 gallon today, and I am totally please with how it turned out! I can't wait for the plants to really take off...




^The mats are riccia fluitans, if you're wondering.

Very colorful tank! You will have a great aquarium when it grows in! Good job!
