Tank is really clearing up from all the cloudiness that the substrate created (even after a thorough rinse) i put a sponge over one of my filter intakes to help clear it up faster.

Also im seeing growth already :D


AND I added all my fish back into the tank, it was refilled with the water from the original tank and using the same mature filter media. So it was ready for fish :D


Stocked with
5 white angelfish
20 Neon Tetra
1 Cardinal Tetra (he was the only one left at the store.. i felt bad.. so i grabbed him and he hangs out with all the neons just fine ;D)
7 Zebra Danio
1 Leopard Danio (again.. only one left at the store.. lol)
3 Julii Cory
3 Bronze Cory

Looks amazing :) I'm about to start a 29 gallon planted and I'm still trying to figure out where to start *nervous laugh*
What substrate did you use?

Thank you :D

It is my first planted tank, so i figured go big or go home lol

But I bought all of my supplies online.

Substrate - Aquariumplants.com (they make their own and its a GREAT deal instead of the other brand name stuff)
Plants - drsfostersmith.com (aquariumplants.com is great too i just found the right plants i wanted in stock at dr foster and smith so i used them)
Lighting - Aquatraders.com (AMAZING prices on T5 High Output lighting fixtures and others)

Dwarf hairgrass, it is the easiest to grow as a carpet from my research. I like it very much so far :)
