  • lovfishwpassion1, thanks for your comment. Once you provide appropriate conditions and needed equipment, plants will last for a good and easily propagate. Half an hour every day seems to be enough time to keep your aquarium under control, including regular water changes as well as occasional trimming and replanting. Have no idea how much money it could cost but no doubt that your commitment and hard work are much more important than possible costs, if you wish to have planted tank.

  • wow your tank is beautiful!!!!!! I just got a 29 gallon tank and i want it to be a planted one but i have never done one before so i need some help. How much time and work does it take to have such a beautiful tank like yours? ALso how long do plants last for? And how much money would it be for a 29 gallon tank to look like this? and if you have any tips for me please share! lovfishwpassion1 avatar lovfishwpassion1

  • Hi Pete and thanks. Upper parts on the left and right side are Hemianthus and foreground in middle is mostly Glosso. So far, the growth of Hemianthus with CO2 addition is fine, as it has to be trimmed at least once a week. Have no experience how it growths w/o pressurized co2. FIKUS avatar FIKUS

  • Lovely setup, well done. One question, is the ground cover plant Hemianthus and if so does it grow ok with co2 (or not without co2), although looking at your tank it looks like it grows fine. Once again, fantastic planted tank. Pete. barny61 avatar barny61
