Submitted By: Michael on
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.

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
