    Hello. I'm Pan from Indonesia.

    I've been wanting an aquarium since I was in middle school but only able to afford it now after I have a job of my own. Thinking starting small and see where it got me before going big so I buy an 56l tank.

    I used about 1 to 2 cm garden compost as substrate (varied by location), capped with silica sand. I can't scape for my own life, so I just plant left and right! Currently had 11 neon tetra, 6 glowlight tetra, 3 locally caught shrimps (i think some kind of ghost shrimps) and one dwarf gourami (sunset color). And a pair of endler's-guppy hybrid and two threadfin rainbowfish (I know I'm overstocked. I'm greedy! I'm going to move the tetra on another tank yo reduce the load). Oh and gazillions of snails. And two assassin snails (which made good works cleaning snails).

    Currently had little bit hair algae (I think that what it called). Not many just some on sunset hygrophila and Java Fern leaves. Used to have problem with diatom algae but ramshorn snails took care of it. Now just some brush algae on moss and hair algae. Going to reduce the light from 8 hours to 4 hours of so.

    Ill try to upload a picture or two.

    Here is a picture of my tank. It has no fish on it because I was just finished cleaning the tank. I did 100% water change because I got rot on three anubias. Two died. One is still hanging in there, I cleaned all rotted part of it and I though I saw new root and leaves grow so I hope it survived. I also siphoned all of mulm I can see, and did some plant move and replanting.

    Overall I'm quite pleased with this tank, there are no difficult plants, most plants are either weeds or easy to care.
