Converted one of my tanks to planted this weekend!

Super happy with the result. Switched from hangover filters to a sunsun cannister. Added fluorite and some of my overgrown plants from another tank.

That's the thing about live plants. They just look so real (grin).

Congratulations on making the change, now all you have to do is watch and wait for growth...

Fair warning, it's so hard to keep your hands out of the water the first few days/weeks after new planting.
