What Patience Can Do

1503 9
Here's my 29G tank after 3 months of setting up! Would you believe that almost all these plants started out with just 5 stems each I got for free? Patience is a virtue that a broke college student needs to enjoy this hobby :laugh2: No CO2, just light, water changes, and 2 year old aquasoil from when my bank account still had a comma :laugh2:

Next up, riccia the size of a dime that got caught when I bought some fish haha!

Bump:

Nicely done. Patience is often something that's in short supply with planted tanks. That's my favorite part is growing enough plants to fill a whole tank off of a single purchase. I bought five dollars worth of Wisteria a year ago and now my 55 gallon is chock-full of it.


Oh I've taken the shirt off to keep the sleeves dry, but never had the urge to change water in the buff - I reserve that for quality time, a shower, or a dip in the hot tub,
By "quality time" you mean frying bacon, right?

I mean, water changes is quality time! hehe.

I got curious with the CO2 so I set up the simple the baking soda/citric acid combo but forgot about changing the bps before going to work. Came home with every single fish gasping for air... :( Maybe I'll stick with just being a true low tech tank haha! (huge airstone was placed after 5 minutes of getting home and fish are starting to relax! phew...). Guess that's what I get for trying to speed things up after making a thread about what patience can do :p

Patience is definitely is quite a gift for those with a busy lifestyle! Heck, maybe I'll turn this into a tank journal!
