Mr Aqua shallow aquarium.

Hi everyone.

So I had a 12g Mr aqua tank I was using as a frag tank then decomissioned.

It sat for a few months collecting dust.
I went to the doctor earlier this week and got good news so I decided to celebrate by starting my first planted tank since the fish store was conveniently down the street.

This is actually my 2nd freshwater tank since i had a tiny tank with some moss balls and a crayfish before ,but my first all out planted tank.I started with a reef tank but now I felt like its time for a 2nd less demanding aquarium but equally beautiful scenery.

Ill post the details down below,but first a few pictures for you guys.

Looks nice. Could I recommend some bushy plants along the back wall, like echinodorus compacta?

What an awesome tank! I love the wood exposed out of the surface of the water.

I would add 3 more khuli loaches. They are most comfortable in groups, and you'll get a lot more enjoyment out of them.
