Here is my 5 gallon Fluval Chi. This is my first post and I have been browsing for about a month but I just registered. I'm really having fun and I can't wait to get my Finnex Fugeray Planted+ clip light and a different filter. The stock lighting is abysmal and a third of the LEDs work half the time. I just added the cherry barbs and I am giving the pleco to a friend soon. I also have a male betta. The plants are Anubias Nana, Java Fern, and an Amazon Sword (not sure what kind). I attached the plants to the driftwood with super glue. Just a dab. I dose liquid ferts and CO2 liquid.

I am just getting back into the hobby after a long time. When I was last into it CF lights were just hitting the market and I set up a 6g Eclipse tank with a retrofitted CF light from ahsupply.com and I had DIY CO2 and my plants grew great.

I'm looking forward to participating in the forum and learning as much as possible!

I am replacing the filter and light unit for a small HOB filter and a Finnex Fugeray Planted+ clip light. The lighting now is awful. My sword was doing okay for almost a year but it started melting last week and I'm not sure if it will come back or not. I'm hoping with the liquid ferts, liquid CO2, and a Flourish Root Tab under it it will survive until I get the light. I'll probably move the cherry barbs and add a few once I get my 10g set up. I'm hoping my friend will take the Pleco soon. I have a lot to learn but I am really having fun with it!

Wow! Your tanks are amazing! I love how you utilized the vertical space in your tank. I was thinking of getting another piece of driftwood placed vertically to use the space. I'm not quite sure yet really. Do you have CO2 on that Chi?
