45G -High - First Planted Aquarium

I attched some pictures of the Aquarium. I have some success and have had soome plants that never made it and some algae problems that I belive are now under control. Take a peek and let me know how I can improve my tank.

Hello and welcome to TFK

Looks good, one thing I would suggest is adding some floating plants.

I like it just the way it is

Welcome to TFK.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Tank looks great, Can't quite tell but looks like there's a few amazon swords in there in the mid ground. If so those are going to get quite large eventually, may start plotting a bit of relocation for them as they get older. The clown loach is going to get large as well and likes to have clown loach buddies around. I think generally speaking they should be in schools of 5 or more, and in larger tanks of 75 G's plus off the top of my head I don't quite recall how long they get but its 7 inches plus. May look to get him some little buddies then upgrade them to a larger down the road to keep them happy. Looks good though all in all.

That is nice. But i would get a floating plant or two. Makes quite a difference, and the fish will love it.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
