Corals/Plants Kept: Ludwigia, Java fern, dwarf hair grass, Anubis, ozelot and Amazon swords, cryptocryne. Rotalla, stagoryne repens, jungle Val, alteranthia renica, and a few others idk the name of..... Most from the little bags at petco and a few from an aquarium shop. With co2 and high lighting it really doesn't matter; if it looks cool I grab it, throw it in the tank and it grows.
Tank Size: 75
Advice: I would just go "high tech" from the beginning because sooner or later you're going to want to, and it's honestly the same effort. Keep in mind "high tech" doesn't have to be expensive either. Everything including the tank itself is from Craigslist (besides one bulb and the canister filter). I use dirt underneath a commercial bag of Home Depot pea gravel and there is not a plant I have come across yet that does not flourish...... For fact a heavily planted aquarium needs co2, and a strong light source. you don't need halides, but for a cost of only $260 including a co2 tank off cl when you'll spend the same on a t5 fixture, why not. The Reds on my ludwigia and pink on my rotalla ensure me that I'll never switch to anything else.

About Yourself: Started when I was around 11 years old with a all in one 36 litre micro tank with 6 neon tetra and a dumbo beta, have since changed tanks around 10 times and run multiple tanks, will only be showing my main tank and possibly my turtle stand (not sure if it counts but it's pretty cool) I am a carpenter by trade but have decided to roll with the times and so studying mechanical engineering.
Fish Kept: Black Angel, Marble Veil Angel, Pigeon Blood Discus, Blue Gourami, Opaline Gourami, Pearl Gourami, Glowlight Tetra, Cardinal Tetra
Corals/Plants Kept: Will do later
Tank Size: 54
Advice: Start simple, and balance your tank with live plants to maintain happier fish! Nothing is quite as rewarding as maintaining a eco system and watching it thrive with minimal input because you have chosen the right plants and the right fish to go with them.
