4ft planted rainbow tank

Not fully planted as yet, but getting there. DIY substrate has clay in it so scuse the cloudiness, it will settle down once the filter works on it a bit

Very nice

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

Thanks guys

All the plants have multiplied from one original lot i bought. I just keep trimming the originals and adding them to other tanks
All of these originated from the 2.6ft planted i have

I redid the tank, the rainbows tool a liking to the sunset hygro and decimated the leaves....sods lol

Still a ways to go before it clears. The substrate has quite a bit of clay content, which naturally i stirred up while redoing the tank
