Nice tank! I'd like to see a bit of plant height along the back or on the wood. Sorry, I'm a bit of a plant nut...I can't help myself sometimes, lol.

Very nice for a first timer!! I belong to a plant club so all my tanks are low tech jungles :cool:.

What part of the US are you in? Just in a vague kind of way, state or nearby big city? There are clubs in many places, well worth looking into :) I love my club & have liked others in different places I've lived. It's fun even if you only go once in a while.

Toronto probably has lots to fish &/or plant clubs! & lots of great shops! I love living near a big city (but not in)! You fooled me with your tank top/balcony avatar, I was guessing Florida, lol.

When it's time, maybe after your move, we can discuss possible plants. Or post up your lighting, water parameters & plant visions for your tank; maybe a new thread in the planted tank forum. We've kind of fallen off your original topic. You'll get more help that way.

I know with my low tech planted tanks and the type of plants I keep, it takes a year or better for them to be a jungle. Doing any major disruption in the tank is going to likely reset that time.

I'm a few hours away in the Buffalo area. Very few local fish stores. Even fewer with a plant selection. Most of what I have started as a pathetic petco or petsmart plant!
