I finally got my 55gal tank planted and added fish shortly after. Just wanted to share and say thanks for all the great advice during this process!

Wow, your tank doesn't look REAL. Too clean.... I curious to see how all the plants fill out the tank a few weeks from now.

  • What type of filtration are you using for the tank?
  • 4 angelfish
  • 2 blue gouramis
  • gold dojo loach?

Thanks MSG for the comments.....I do want the "clean" look for now....the plants will fill-in and still give the look I want....

I am using a Odyssea CFS 500 Canister Filter as I another one running in my 30gal....I have had great luck with these (despite some reviews)...I am using the AquaTop D2HT 300 Watt Digital Aquarium Heater which I really like, great performance so far!! I am using liquid ferts for now and hopefully by year's end might invest in pressurized CO2 system. I have 5 angels, 5 gouramis (1 blue and 4 red)..and the loaches which I really enjoy!

Next week I will double the population and then watch them grow..

Just want to chime in...

5 Angels in a 55 is pretty much max for the tank. I would not add anymore fish if I were you. Yes, they are small now, but they grow to be the size of your hand (with fingers extended).

Other than that, the tank looks really clean... can't wait to see how the plants fill in

Nice looking tank, has a very "modern" look to it, almost reminds me of a zen garden. You should get a little pagoda for your Dojo haha.
