hi all, long time member but usually just a watcher so to speak. Finally got my 55l up and running and settled so thought i'd share it.

Back story
Having started with planted tanks some years ago with a 40lt south American tank (with a pair of Rams), i moved to a mbuna tank (my favourite of all the tanks i've had) before then moving to marine tanks for 3-4 years, tank looked stunning but i was always stressed about the next big problem (that never really materialised once it was stable), so sold up whilst it looked good.

At Christmas i got bought a 30l cube and started planting in it, realised very quickly it was not big enough so moved up to a 55l a couple of months ago (also realising it's not big enough but knowing it's a big as i'm going to get) and here am i.
