Description: There are some awesome tanks on this site. You folks inspired me to heavily plant my aqaurium. I'm fairly new to the hobby with a 28-gallon, Top Fin Bow Front aquarium that is 25-inches wide, 18-and-three-quarters-inches tall and 12-inches deep. I've got a Hagen CO2 system and a flourite and gravel substrate. I do 20-percent water changes twice a week and routine maintenance, cleaning and pruning once a week.
Advice: Start out with a good substrate to avoid a cloudy, messy addition later on. Then get as many different kinds of plants as you can.
Fish Kept: Zebra Danios, Neon Tetras, Tiger Barbs and Swordtails.
Corals/Plants: Echindodourus Subalatus; Egeria Densa; Eleocharis Acicularis; Java Fern; Echinodorus Red Rubin; Nymphea Stellata; Marisilea Quadrifolia; Ludwigia Repens; Moneywort; Myriophyllum Aquaticum (Green); Rotala sp. Nanjenshan; Anubius Barteri Var Angustifolia; Hemianthus Micrathemodes and a couple of others.
Tank Size: 28 gallons
Quote: First, do no harm.
About Yourself: I used to have a great aquarium similar to this (not nearly as heavily planted as this one, but a few live plants) some 20 years ago. Gave it away in a move and regretted it. Finally got a new one and love it. I don't even turn on the TV in the evenings any more.
