Photo #14 - Fresh Water Flounder, 1 Of Three

previous
125 gallons planted tank (mostly live plants and fish) - a grown up picture of my tank, things getting to a point where they are just doing what they want with out much encouragement from me, other than regular feedings, co2, r/o water changes with added nutrients and supplements to keep trace elements in the tank for the plants and the fish. using peat moss in my canister filter along with a peat nylon bag buried in the back so it can't be seen, as an additive for the plants as well as a ph controller. hope you enjoy the newer look as much as i do, i can't wait for the micro grass carpet to finish growing across the front of the tank, once it does i am going to have to start moving plants to the 55 gallon and get that setup as all live plants with more discus and a large school of cardinal tetra along with about thirty or forty ghost shrimp.

About Yourself: I have switched from african and south american cichlids, to more docile fish, yes i know discus are cichlids, lol well i am more than just dabbling these days in planted aquariums, lol anything worth doing is worth doing right and with your foot to the floor so to speak, patience is key but don't be afraid once you have a properly cycled tank to add as many plants as you can properly sustain.
