    Starting this thread to keep track of my progress. All suggestions and comments are surely welcome and appreciated though. Two weeks ago tank was purchased and some substrate and hardscape ordered. Last week orders received and substrate/hardscape went in. M

    Led light is on its way today once received; light goes on plants go in then move over the canister that’s been running on an established tank. Then the painful process of eliminating stock on my wishlist.

    Let's see the wish list, I can probably add a few that you'll have to scratch off. ;)

    The lady hiding behind the rock there doesn't look like any guppy I've ever seen.

    I’m terrible at this journal keeping business. So here I am two months later. Planted some Apontogeton, Wisteria, an Anubius or two and now have a ton of Crypts. 12 neons a few guppies +fry. Five neons and a DG almost out of qt.
