55 gal tank with 4 x 65 watt pc lighting. Magnum 350 canister filter. DIY CO2 with DIY reactor. Tank is one month old now. Suprised at how well the DIY co2 injector and reactor work.
Do it the right way, not the quick way.

Been keeping fish tanks for 15 years or so, this is my first attempt at a planted tank. Have had 10-125 gal tanks saltwater, reef, and fish only. This hobby never gets boring.
There is nothing more beautiful than a thriving saltwater tank, but these tanks can be expensive to set up and maintain.
Starting a new tank can be time-consuming, especially if you have to choose all of your own equipment.
Also known as oto cats, otocinclus catfish are some of the smallest aquarium fish out there and also some of the best algae eaters.
