First of all, amazing set up. I am very envious. I just have two questions for you regarding stocking. What is the taller plant growing in the rear left part of the top tank and what is it that the cory is laying on? It does not look like peacock moss so I had to ask. And last question, do you have CO2 running in every tank?

The taller spikier plant in the left is Pogostemon erectus and the plant the albino longfin cory is sitting on is Fissiden Fonatunus.

Both of you have beautiful tanks!

Amazingly beautiful tanks. Love the fish room as well. I don't want to get into the whole CO2 thing but man, it is tempting after seeing your plants doing so very well.

Wanna come work on my tank? ha h

Awesome thank you. Would you have a lighting recommendation for a 20 gallon planted? Currently, I have a single full spectrum fluorescent tube that is seemingly not sufficient.

Big Al's Pets has Zoo Med Aquasun T5-HO Fluorescent Hood - 2 x 24 W - 24"for only 54.99 which is a great deal. I use zoo meds on most my tanks and comes with the option to run one or two bulbs. This would give you enough light to grow anything. I would recommend a 6500k or 6800k and a 5000k bulb. Substrate is really important as well, I prefer eco complete because it last forever and gets better in time if you are using tap water since it already has minerals in it and eco complete has a high CEC which means it holds nutrients. ADA soil you can get fast growth but in time it becomes dirt and loses it punch. I dont even have to dose ferts in my tank. If I had RO water I would need to dose ferts.

It's been almost a YEAR since we've seen that pretty fishroom of yours!
I need updates!!! I'm going through Knuggs withdraws!
