Photo Caption:This pic was taken when I first set the tank up over a month ago and I don't have any recent pics of the whole tank with the fish in it.
This is my first live plant tank. It's a long 20g with 3 tiger barbs (used to be 5 but two died, going to get more), 6 albino cory's, and 1 false julli cory (going to get more)
I have a whisper 40 filter and 100 watt heater and a 20 watt flora glo light strip.
For plants I have amazon swords, anarchris (bad spelling), and vallernias (bad spelling) but the vallernias aren't surviving to well.
Description: This is my 55g fish tank, its 4'x13"x1' 9" and has 3 inches of natural colored gravel in it with several artifical plants in it. The filter I use is a Marineland Penquin bio-wheel 350 power filter and I use a 200 watt marineland heater.
Advice: Don't believe what pet stores tell you and always ask on a fish forum on about how to set up your first tank and don't over stock or put incompatible fish together in the same tank.

About Yourself: I'm 15 years old and this all started as a science project in the 7th grade (2 to 3 years ago) with a 10g and 4 black widow tetras to observe how many times they open and close their mouth in a minute but after the project was over I was hooked on fish, then a few months later I got a long 20g tank then a 55g tank
