What surprised you when you set up your first planted tank? Perhaps something that wasn't mentioned when you did your research.

For me, I was surprised by how easily my tank could get covered in Aquasoil dust

Oh gee...I bought a "set-up" from one of the few vendors online in the '90's without getting much instruction. I was alarmed at how fast the plants grew out of the aquarium when I first tried my mini CO2 generator (the one with the yeast and sugar mixture in it) and couldn't figure out why the fish were racing around at the water line.
