Restarting my planted tanks

So, as some of you may know, we were sadly the victims of a nasty fire that took 2/3 of our apartment building this summer. Well, this was an electrical fire and it burnt out my lights on all the tanks. I recently relate the tanks and put all new plants in. Also restocked the fish that didn't make it. Most of them parishes from all the lack of care as we were homeless for a while and had personal issues after. So I am super excited with our newly remodeled tanks! As are the kids and hubby. Any suggestions are welcome.

this is the 30 gallon tank

Awesome! They are looking great! Glad you're getting them back into action. :) sorry to hear about the fire. :( glad everyone was okay besides the fish! The 20 gallon looks very lush already.

i have found it to be much cheaper for things like heaters and hoods on amazon.com than in the pet store! saved a lot doing it that way!

yes, the 20 gallon was doing the best without the light because it got a lot of natural sun light. so the amazon swords were still doing fairly well. the others were added later. they have been in there for about a week. just waiting on them to start growing so i can start cutting and putting in the other tanks.

Yes! I love amazon. Everything is a fraction of the price it is at pet stores. If you know wha you need and don't feel you have to see it in person first (for things like driftwood), it's great! :D

Looking good and sorry to hear about the fires.

I personally would add more plants but what you have will spread.

congrates and continue.
