since this pops up on google so often
I decided to register and see.
Set this one up about two months ago, did a quick cycle using mature media, quite content with it now although the frogbit is getting pushy now after 8 days in the tank. Already had to rehome a few crypts that exploded into more foliage than I'd expected.
Tank is 80cm wide, about 125 liters. Filtration is an eheim 2211 loaded with ceramics.

Beautiful & natural tank man! The leaf litter is a nice touch.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

Welcome to the forum
Good job with your tank. I wish mine looked that goodIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Well, I did spend about 80 hours on research for the scaping alone and another 15 or so sketching and planning and revising and sketching again.

Awesome tank. Love the bright color on the fish.
