This is going to be my first ever journal of the evolution of my 12inx12in Starfire tank. I'm trying to take pictures every week so I can get a good idea of how the plants are growing in. Keep in mind that I'm still in university, so I do fall behind on my WC schedule and/or tank cleaning schedule from time to time.
Any type of constructive criticism is welcome! I've been following this forum for ages but have never posted anything, so I felt like it's my time to contribute, at least as much as I can.
