    Default My planted tank.

    I have been keeping fish since 1998. Here is my 80 gal planted low tech tank. I have a dirt substrate that my Sword plant LOVES. I have had this sword plant for 4 years now and I have never seen it this big before. I am excited to see this part of the forum

    Dirt tanks are were it is at for me. This is my first dirt tank and I LOVE IT!

    before


    This is how it was after I re-did it all.


    Here it is 5 months later.

    Beautifully done Sarah! I keep several species of loach. They like to dig in the gravel, eat plants and require strong water movement. What you've done would be impossible for me.

    Very nice. Looks like most of the orchid lovers have some interest in Aquariums.
