    I originally wanted to start a shrimp tank, so I converted an old saltwater Biocube 14 into a planted tank. Long story short, I started from seeds from Amazon which were likely hygrophila polysperma. I pulled the weeds out and committed the cube to quarantine duty. Here's my 2nd attempt...

    Finally decided to take the leap and do a planted tank with the 60P. It has always been my wife's goal to make a planted tank with an anubia tree. Using our existing stock of anubias nana petite + some anubias a friend donated, we went for it. We still have a long ways to go, but its a work...
