    Hello all,
    thid my first planted aquarium attempt.
    Its taken a month before i posted a picture as after a decent start in thr beginning i have had f problems with algae. Thr tank has started to settle down and after a black out algae has reduced. Will post an update further on down the line.
    If you pick up any thing and have advice please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    How are you liking live plants in your tank? Pros and cons?

    Thanks for the likes
    Keeping live plants are great. I enjoy the natural look. And the fish seem to behave more true to their nature. So far the only con is the price of the set up, but that is only because I'm already wanting to do another build . Maybe those things that could be considered cons , like the maintenance etc. i really enjoy and i see the challenge as a continuous growing curve. Other than that all else is a pro. There is great joy when you see your plants start to color up or when your ottos show spawning behavior, and the exiting anticipation when your shrimp have eggs.

    Very, very nice @Sputterfuss

    You are so right... when you do things with a passion for them, there are really no cons...
