Hello, Planted Tank people. I’ve kept aquariums for 40 years and have learned from this forum for years, so thanks to you all. I’m a proposal writer and my husband is a musician. We have three cats, which is why my tanks have lids. I like gardening outside as well as in the aquarium. In this jungly 30-gallon cube, there are currently 30 ruby tetras and a breeding population of cherry shrimp (along with some other odds and ends). Click image for larger version

Welcome!
This tank is very beautiful!
Can you tell us more about the plants in here, whether hi tech-or low, your fertilizing regime?

Thanks for your kind words, Discusluv. On this 30-gallon cube tank, which was set up in June 2018, I run three of these LED fixtures 10 hours per day. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01...b_b_asin_title
The substrate is Fluval Stratum. I dose Aquarium Co-op’s EasyGreen, Flourish Iron, and Flourish Excel in the water column. I place Flourish tabs in the substrate every few months near the crypts and the nymphaea. This is a low-tech tank (no pressurized CO2). Lots of happy cherry shrimp live in this tank; I trade them in whenever I go to my LFS. Click image for larger version

Plants list, let’s see. The back of the tank is a wall of susswassertang that I made using black plastic canvas. The carpet is mixed Crypt parva and Eleocharis mini. Crypts in this tank include C. balansae, C. Wendtii brown, C. Tropica, C. lutea, etc. There is a Nymphaea stellata in the tank. The driftwood is planted with ‘Trident’ Java fern, Bolbitis ‘Baby Leaf,’ and a number of Bucephalandra species including ‘Mini Coin,’ ‘Red,’ ‘Wavy Green,’ and many mats of unidentified buces. Then of course there are rampant mosses that I must endlessly yank out as they attempt total world domination. 🙂 This cube tank is in a corner of our living room, so it’s designed to be viewed from two sides. Here’s a side view, about a year old. Click image for larger version
