Hey there, I have a 20 gallon planted tank and wanted to expand. Someone on Facebook a few miles away was selling a 55 gallon tank, with heater, dual outlet air pump, lights, fluval 306 canister filter, and a stand for $50! I went and picked everything up and came home to set it up. The lights that came with the tank were marineland 11 inch light bars that I read don't really cut it for planted tanks so I bought a 48 inch fluval 3.0 plant light. I didn't want to spend alotilon substrate so I bought black diamond blasting sand, washed it thoroughly and put it in. The media in the filter was pretty rough, so I bought new foams and a 50 micron pad to put on top of it all, and then I got 4 lbs of Biohome Ultimate media (also being used in my 20 gallon) . I took about a 3rd of the media from my 20 gallon and put it, along with the pre-filter sponge in one tray, and filed the other tray completely with more biohome. I will post a picture and then continue with my aquascape and plants thus far shortly.
