About Yourself: I used to have a 30 gallon coral reef tank in Califothis but upon moving to India, coral was no longer an option. I started my first planted tank and love it. It has been just as rewarding for me as keeping coral.
Corals/Plants Kept: anubias, Rotala rotundifolia HRA, Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Mi Oya', Cryptocoryne Wendtii `Green Gecko`, Staurogyne repens, Hemianthus micranthemoides, java fern, African fern, vallisneria jungle grass, Plant, Nymphaea sp., Dwarf Lily, Alternanthera Reineckii and much more.
Tank Size: 20
Advice: Try, experiment, learn what works and practice regular water changes
Description: This picture really highlights what I would consider the focal point of the tank to be. There is a drift wood tunnel, covered in ferns, moss and a clover type plant and a sandy river bed with some rocks that disappears into a dark cave. On either side of the river bed, there are different plants that contrast in color. A dark green sword has grown big next to smaller sword and other species. On the other side, the bright red Alternanthera Reineckii has grown tall next to the bushy green Hemianthus micranthemoides. In the background, there is another stem plant that grows concentric green layered shoots out which only looks better as it climbs and fills out more.
