Dylan's 55g Planted Aquarium
Hey everyone! After having great success with my 10g (see HERE) I've decided to turn my 55g into a planted tank! The stocking isn't exactly the best so please don't give me too much hate for it (if it's not broken, don't fix it). My stocking is as follows:
1 Silver Dollar
1 Male Convict Cichlid
3 Female Guppies
7 Australian Rainbows
1 Syndontis Catfish (not exactly sure on which type it is for sure)
But I've decided that once my Convict Fry in my 29g get big enough to sell, I'm going to move my Rainbows, Guppies, and Silver Dollar over to the 29g so they don't stress the Angels out too much. I'd like to get a big school of Corys along with my Angelfish because I absolutely LOVE Corys!
Well, now that you know a little about my tank, let's get started with some pictures because I mean, who doesn't want to see the pictures right?
Here's the tank with fake plants and driftwood (except 2 pieces of real driftwood):
When I was out looking for driftwood yesterday, I managed to find a sweet piece:
Here's all the plants acclimating in the 55g:
Here's the new T5 lighting I'm getting for Christmas (mom said to plug it in and see if it worked before Christmas morning LOL):
