Hey folks just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. Name's Mike from Philadelphia. I stopped in to get some information about setting up some plants in my tank. My daughter recently asked to spruce up the 55g we've had in our living room for the last 10+ years. Unfortunately the tank had been left to it's own devices for a while and looks a bit less than desirable! We've got some work to do. The tank sat for a while with some driftwood and some Java Moss in it under some T5HOs with the only inhabitant being a Syndontis Eupterus that my daughter affectionately named "Flounder". In the last week we've added a dozen or so guppies, a betta, and 3 nerite snails to help combat the algae problem. I've since upgraded my lights to a Fluval 3.0 and have my whites set at 50%, pink at 25%, and blue at around 5% right now to let some plants acclimate. I've added some dwarf hair grass, baby tears, anacharis, cambomba, and moneywort. When I get things scaped up how I want, i'll definitely be taking some photos. I'm not using CO2 at the moment but I'm open to it. Right now, as long as my daughter's happy, I'm happy.
