Starting a thread for my 55 gallon dirted and soon to be planted tank! I had a good time with African cichlids but the constant fighting and aggression has made me convert to plants and community fish.

Tank: Standard 55 Gallon
Lighting: Diamond Plate 4' Fixture from HD
Substrate: MGOPM capped with Black Sand
Plants: ... coming soon
Fish: ... coming soon
CO2: Maybe a DIY

Mbuna tank before tear down:

Well the tank has been progressing and plants are growing, but I am having 1 major problem. Air bubbles in the substrate keeping bringing up dirt and making a mess. I thought I had got rid of them all, but they just keep showing up.

Check out the Cabomba plant, that's what I have in the back right of mine and what yours might be.

I have been thinking the same thing about the driftwood but it is too much work to change it now xD and the round rock is just to grow out some moss :)
Hopefully when the plants cover majority of the dw it will look better :)
