Pictures of first planted tank-55g
Picked up the plants today for my tank. I ended up getting 3 Swords, 2 Java Ferns, 2 Anubias although it was potted as one, 1 Contortionist Val and a clump of Riccia. I also got maybe 5 or so small shrimp with the Riccia. Other inhabitants right now are a dozen or so MTS. Tomorrow I am getting 8 Platies for it. It's a little bare right now but I hope the plants do well and fill it in. I might add a plant here or there later on depending on how it grows. I'll post up more pictures in here as it goes on.
I really like your driftwood. My kind of platies are you getting?
I believe Red Platies. My aunt is giving me some of hers since they have bred pretty well. Final planned stocking is
Cherry Barb- 8
BN Pleco- 1
Turquoise Rainbow- 8
Peppered Cory- 3
Its lookin good. What kinda swords are those? Just asking cause some will get kinda big and you might wanna move the away from the glass just a little to give them room to grow.
The two on the right side I probably would just a little. The one on the left would probably be alright. Now just is just my thinking and probably would be fine like they are. Just thinking they would look a little better if they were moved just a little bit.
Here is an updated picture. I just added the rocks to it and rearranged the plants a little bit. Think it looks pretty good.
yes it really does look good,just pop that plant back in though lol
Great looking tank!:thumbsup:
