First Planted aquarium - 90g

First post here on TFK, Hello all!

We converted our old reef tank to a freshwater planted tank last weekend. This is after 1 week and before our large order of plants we ordered offline arrives. Hopefully we get those this week and will have a fuller tank soon! In the meantime heres what our tank looks like as of today! :)

We had a problem with our large driftwood wanting to float.. hence the big rocks to hold it down.

btw - why did you change from a reef tank? i wanted to do salt water but was too scared after researching it.

Thanks all!

After we moved, the reef tank took a dive and we could never get it back to the way it was. The algae overtook it and it got to be more work than we wanted to deal with. We were going to sell it but decided to just do fresh water planted!

Right now we have some harlequin rasboras and a pair of dwarf gouramis. We want to get angelfish once the tank is established. Im assuming we may have to get rid of the gouramis or will they be okay?

We added quite a few plants and are still waiting on our sweet aquatics order to deliver! But heres our update. :)
