I decided, after many years, to do a small planted tank. I was fortunate to purchase a 20 gall tall, from Petco, which was moving a store to another location. This is a Medium budget build, and I'm having a blast doing it. What a Aquarium build for anyways?

Substrate is Carib-Sea, and I have Black aquarium gravel on top. I got all the Rocks, from the Rio Grande River. I boiled them for about 20 minutes, before washing them in cold water. Plants were from a "Big Box Store" and in awful condition. I did get a Fluval 45G CO2 system, and installed it. I am pumping about 1 bubble every 5 seconds. More to come!!!!

Thanks! From now on, I won't buy from that store. I will wait and get them from somewhere.....
They didn't have much of a selection, and what they did have, had dead leaves. I did buy grass as well, and it had mostly brown blades.
Here, I added sand for a river look, and punched in the grass. Added a few shells, white sand in the river bed......
