Greetings from Turkey. I had 3 or 4 tanks for live bearers for many years back in the day (~1985-95) when i was a teenage boy. I had to tear them down when I started college. In 2006 my father passed away, I was looking for a hobby to keep mom busy, so I got into planted tanks with a 200lt tank. 3 years later I had to tear that down because I got married and moved away.
So, after a long break of 9 years, i set-up my 80lt open-top cube 7 weeks ago. I have about ~12 different types of plants in there. ADA Amazonia substrate (normal and powder), full spectrum LED lighting, pressurized CO2 with inline atomizer. I am following EI regimen for fertilizing. I very recently got about 20 cherry shrimps, 5 amonos, 4 horned snails, 10 rasbora kubotai and 10 ember tetras.
Tank is still in progress (as all tanks are, i guess). Here is a picture from 2 weeks ago (it is in better shape at the moment)View attachment 14691
This is a gorgeous tank sir. I can only hope to one day have a setup as nice as yours. Well done!
