    Miced planted tank. I want to do one...I had a small 5g but it was pretty weak. Just a few plants and some guppies and danios and ghost shrimp. I think I had a Betta at one point too. I keep seeing used tanks for nothing and it gets the wheels turning, but I have to wait until we buy another house as I already have the 72g and 8g reefs to move.

    What lights do you run for that tank?

    They definitely made a big improvement from when I left before Christmas. A few of them were looking a little rough.

    Hey everyone!

    I'm still around. I'm out of town working for the summer again. The tank is still doing great! I need to do some SERIOUS trimming when I go back for 4th of July. The fish don't have much room left to swim.

    Since my last update I have added two discus, and to my surprise, are doing excellent!!

    Before I left for the summer I still had not converted them to frozen/flake food. I had them eating bloodworms every now and then but that was it. A week after I left they started eating flake food so that eased my mind. I'll put some pics up next time I head back.
