Description:Switched my 55 gallon community tank to a low tech/low light live (mostly) planted tank. All plants are real except tall green ones in the back. Plants include java fern (2 varieties) and moss, anubias (2 varieties), water lily, aponogeton and water onion.

About Yourself:Just an old hippie who loves the peace and tranquility of fish tanks. Currently, I have nine running, ranging from five to sixty gallons in a small apartment affectionately known as "The Hobbit Hole".
Description:So I'm new to planted aquariums, got this aquarium on the cheap, and went for it. I kept fish when I was younger, but I'm just now getting back into the hobby. the first pic was a couple weeks ago, and the second was a couple days ago. The hornwort and moneywart are doing great, but the anubias looks like kinda weak. I did fertilizer with osmocote root tabs, but beyond that, pretty unsure what to do the liven it up. Suggestions?
