I am new to the fish-keeping hobby in general and just started my first ever aquarium/planted tank after tons of research and 2 am YouTube binges
. I went with a 20-gallon long which I feel like is a good size for a beginner. My friend got me into the hobby after months of me following his tank's progression and I've got to say - I'm really excited to be picking up this hobby.
Below are a few pictures of my tank's progression thus far. I'd love any feedback/recommendations as I move forward. Thank you all in advance and I feel very fortunate to be a part of this community
Day 1: Initial Set-Up (Seachem Flourite substrate with black gravel on top)
Day 7: Added Lighting
Day 8: Tank starting to clear up
Day 10: Added Purigen
Day 12: Propagated plants
Day 14: Added DIY CO2
Day 20: Tank cleared up very nicely
Day 30 - Current: Added Tetras and some red background plants (Currently 2 male guppies, 1 paradise betta, 3 catfish, 15 tetras)
My friend gave me some of the plants in the tank. I only know that the ones in the foreground are s.repens. Would anyone be able to help me identify the others? Much thanks!!
