Description: 55 galon freshwater tank My tank has 2 powerheads, an undergravel filter, a Whisper 60 power filter, and a heater. My lighting is natural spectrum flourescent bulbs, not the ones that came with the tank. It makes the fish look MUCH better :)
Advice: Start your tank with ALL bottled water, especially if you live in an area with hard water. Minerals are a pain in the butt to remove, and they make your water look really cloudy.
Fish Kept: Currently in my tank I have: 1 Angel Fish 2 Bala Sharks 3 Platys 5 Neon Tetras 2 Longfin Rosy Barbs 2 Pristilla Tetras 1 Albino Tetra 1 Glass Catfish 3 Penguin Tetras 1 Congo Tetra 1 Chinese Algae Eater
Corals/Plants: None :) They're easier to keep looking nice :)
Tank Size: 55 gallons

yep put a planted backing on this and it will look awesome also some taller plants on the fare left and right. cool tank! fish avatar
my suggestion is you need a cool backgroung, and alot more plants ( live ones ) with your soft water and lighting they should do fine and your angels will love them. i have hard alkaline water, but i have malawi cichlids so i don't have to ajust my water, except for start right. but i like what you have done so far.. good luck. fish avatar
