Photo Caption:This picture really highlights what I would consider the focal point of the tank to be. There is a drift wood tunnel, covered in ferns, moss and a clover type plant and a sandy river bed with some rocks that disappears into a dark cave. On either side of the river bed, there are different plants that contrast in color. A dark green sword has grown big next to smaller sword and other species. On the other side, the bright red Alternanthera Reineckii has grown tall next to the bushy green Hemianthus micranthemoides. In the background, there is another stem plant that grows concentric green layered shoots out which only looks better as it climbs and fills out more.
Description: I have a 20 gallon rectangular tank with a hang on the back filter, CO2 diffuser and LED light strips. There is an automatic feeder that dumps blood worms mixed with some granular food twice a day. I was trying to create a nature/jungle style of aquarium.
Advice: Try, experiment, learn what works and practice regular water changes
About Yourself: I used to have a 30 gallon coral reef tank in Califothis but upon moving to India, coral was no longer an option. I started my first planted tank and love it. It has been just as rewarding for me as keeping coral.
