Update on 60 gal planted tank

Recommended Posts

So over the last couple of days I've been rearranging and attempting to clean my tank of algae/diatoms. So, since it's once again looking presentable, I thought I'd share a few pictures! Everything has been rearranged, a lot of pruning has taken place. Baby java fern that have grown off the adults have been dotted about the tank, plants have been cleaned to the best of my ability, nerites added, and I'm now awaiting lots of new plants that should be arriving in the next couple of days :)

Thanks, although I can't take full credit, my 70 odd year old nan was giving me an earful about what looked right and what looked wrong haha.

Hopefully get a lot of the tubes at the back hidden when the new plants arrive too :)

I just love the natural look! You have really got a good eye. You have placed those rocks so well, and planted in the right spots! GREAT JOB!



p.s. please post updates when your new plants arrive! :)

Ahh thanks! There will definitely be updates as soon as the plants are in :) I do prefer the natural look, I like using live plants, and I've always been quite lucky with them, considering I've never used co2 or fertiliser :) but I'm really excited about the plants coming this week, I'm looking to go for the heavily planted kind of tank :)

I love your tank setup. It is really beautiful. You have some really cute goldfish also. Love them all. Your tank looks really wide in that one side shot. Is it? Your fish look happy swimming about. :)

Thank you :) I think it's 100cm wide, and the depth is just under 50cm :) I tend to think it looks quite big, just because the fish are quite small haha

love it :) what is on the far left?

I really like the big rocks

I think that is the java moss, it's grown wild on a small piece of bogwood :) is that what you were referring too? The big rocks used to be in my Oscar tank, but I liked them that much that when I sold that tank they had to stay haha

Gorgeous! And your bubble wand actually WORKS LOL! :)

It does yeah haha, but no where near as well as it did when I first set it up, which is a little disappointing!
