Introduction

Wanted to get back into the hobby. Love my aquarium so far. It needs work in the design department. I will be getting driftwood and more rocks soon. Tank is empty on one side with floating Java Fern waiting to be tied to some driftwood.

Noticed my water getting a little cloudy, that bluish-gray, so I decided to do a water test.

Inspiration & Goals

Trying to tank my time on this aquarium. Al other tanks I have had have thrived, but I rushed into them. I'm taking my time and doing things right this time. I am trying to have a well maintained planted tank, using DIY root tabs with Osmocote Plus and gel capsules.
