My daughters 1st 20 gal freshwater Planted

Look at my 1st go at a freshwater planted aquarium. I have 6 black neon tetras. Set up Friday Aug 5. Started with only plants and driftwood and a piece of filter pad to add some bacteria from mom's tank before adding fish 2 days later.

Great job Jenn!!

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

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Here's an update!

Added quite a few plants to it, and they all seem to be doing well. The gouramis seem to be very happy along with the tetras. She also added a few Malaysian Trumpet snails to aerate the substrate.

The female gourami is a little blurry, but she would not sit still :)

Beautiful!! Wow. Love the sand and how you've placed wood and plants. Black background is great with set up.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard
