Nice 10g! Plants look really healthy.
My plants arent growing very fast. Oh I forgot to order them. This is going to be my planted sea horse tank in the coming months. Sorry its the best I had.
Does anyone know about using ceramic strawberrie potters in tanks? I saw someone with a pirhana tank that had a huge broken pot in it.
Also, I will be showing the progress of my 40g planted hexagon tank in the near future here.
The tanks in this thread are amazing! I think I enjoy plants more than fish sometimes..:-/. This is my first planted tank that has been going for about 8 months now. I have a DIY CO2 injector but up until now my plants have struggled for survival because I have only had a 40w fluorescent light on a 55g aquarium. Most of the plants I tried to put in didn't even survive. The ones in these pictures have grown slowly and are not as green as I would like them to be. I just bought a 216w HO T5 light off of ebay so hopefully that will spark some life into them. Now that I have a better light I want to add many more types of plants.
If I have any success at all it might be one of the cheapest established aquariums ever. I got the 55g aquarium like new, the stand and they standard light for $75 from the news paper. In fact, even after I get my T5 light, everything in this picture, filter heater and all, I put together for under $250. I think that pretty good.
My new tank
If you want to see some of the best freshwater planted tanks I only need to mention my sensei's name Takashi Amano
While Amano's tank are some of the most impressive in world, this is a show your tank thread. Please show your tank.
Here is mine
Hey guys I'm new here. I have a picture of my first planted tank. it's a 29gal standard tank. I used the 2L coke bottle Co2 method with pretty good success.
Wow. Looking great everyone. My planted tank was my first tank ever. I think it would be doing alot better if I had Co2 running and better lights, but I am still happy with its looks. These pictures are from 2 months ago so it has filled out a decent amount since.
I feel like its not up to par with pretty much all of these other tanks, but considering I have only been in the fresh or salt water hobby for not even two years yet I think I have made lots of progress and am proud of it.
