55 Gallon Planted Aquarium

I recently got back in the hobby and I have 42 gallon Hexagon aquarium I moved to my girlfriends house and a couple other fish tanks. I'm going to planning to install a 55 Gallon Planted Aquarium in Art Gallery. I have a vision of Amazon River inside the aquarium. I would like to use a peat based substrate or a mixture to replicate the Rio Negro and do about 3 inches deep layer of substrate. I would like to use leave litter,twigs, various pieces of driftwood, but keep a nice open room for fish to swim. I guess what I'm going for is the Rio Negro Tank I want this to look like something out the Amazon. I plan on for fish using Angelfish and Cardinal Tetra. If anyone can point me in the direction of some resources I would really apperciate it. I plan on filming the build and making a Tank Journal.


42 gallon hex journal coming soon
