Country: United States
Description: Moderately heavy planted tank. It has taken me a year, plus some awesome bday gifts, to get this how I want it. I have a Finnex FugeRay LED, a natural Co2 system, Activ Flora Substrate, AquaClear 50 filter, several different plants that I watch make O2. Pretty amazing!
Advice: Learn all you can, but make it what you want it to be. Shop around, get to know your local shops. They have been the most helpful when I was stumped.
Fish Kept: Bushy Nose Pleco L-144, Dwarf Puffer, Neon Tetra
Corals/Plants: I also have Cherry Shrimps galore. As for plants, there are red swords, elodia, many more that I don't know. I should have paid more attention. I bought them mostly for the looks.
Tank Size: 20 gallons
Quote: Life's tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid.
About Yourself: I love my tank and the process of making it what I want it to be. It gives me joy. I hope that you can find that joy, too.
