Recently joined BCA...here's my first attempt at a planted tank that has been running for 3 weeks. Love to hear any feedback or comments.

20140321_193322.jpg

20G Starphire tank 24"x12"x14"
24" Finnex Fugeray Planted
ADA Amazonia soil
Manzanita stump
Eheim Ecco Pro 2234 Canister Filter
Aquatop heater

Just bought a Deluxe AQUATEK CO2 Regulator with Integrated Solenoid and 5lb tank. Also waiting for lily pipes and inflow stainless steel mesh guard to come in. Will try to post new pictures once everything is set up. Currently deciding on a school of fish that goes well with CRS and looking for a nice stone/rock that I've left room on the right side.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice rider, that's a great little setup you have there. Some great plant species as well, it looks like you have visited a member or two. My suggestion is not add a rock and fill it in with more plants, that stump is already quite large.

How are you enjoying the finnex planted plus? I have been considering that light for awhile but still looking for something to convince me completely. Nice tank by the way!

Looks nice! Make sure your water is above the heaters minimum waterline or else it could melt!

Thank you for all the comments.

Randy...you guessed right...got the awesome plant package from Reckon and was also able to share his plant knowledge.

Battmanh...light is awesome and initially I thought my plants would start to brown or melt because it's sitting pretty low but haven't seen any signs. Also compared a picture and in 3 weeks see good plant growth and only started to fert a week ago.

Reckon...thanks again for the plants. I'm also looking for stargrass and star moss...do you or know anyone who has any?

Should be able to set up my co2 in the next couple days...can't wait to see how the plants grow with it.
