    Currently I have a 5g and a 20g

    My five gallon has a 10w compact fluorescent in it, small fluval submersible filter, sand substrate, a piece of african root wood with java moss on it. A piece of lava rock. and the following other plants

    -Micro Sword
    -Chain Sword (not sure the propper name)
    -Moss Ball
    -Dwarf Cardinal Plant
    -Anubias Nana
    -Some type of crypt

    I also have breeding red cherry shrimp, 5 ember tetras, and 1 oto (every friend I get for him dies)

    Here is how the tank look when I started it:


    Here is how it looks now days!




    Everything looks a little fuller now days thought but I still have that basic lay out. And the tiny shrimp running around add to it also :)

    Recent pic of 5g



    Now my 20g I am just starting

    Substrate: Sand
    Lighting: 38w 7100k compact flourescent
    Heater: 100w
    Filter: Tetra 20

    I don't have any big plans for this tank yet. I want to keep something interesting in it that I don't see everyday (work at a pet store) but I have no idea yet. I might pick up a few long fin zebra danios just to keep it cycling while I pick out my plants I want.

    I know I definitely want this to be a somewhat heavy planted tank, and I also know that this is going to take me awhile to do. I might double up my lighting in the future though annnd I might look into a CO2 system.

    As of when I woke up this morning my sand has finally fully settled so here is a picture of it now.

    Here is a picture of it from my bed, didn't feel like getting up.


    I need to get a background for it also...

    great lookin little tank samantha, if thats the kind of work you do your 20 will be great... one thing tho you may want to get a bigger filter for that 20 like maybe a whisper 40-60
    The only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes.
    RIP Roscoe. We will meet again Bug.

    Well I'm planning on having it heavily planted so I don't need that strong of filtration. plus I don't plan on stocking it with too many fish.
