What of my 30 gallon tank?

As many of you already know, I will soon be getting a 75G planted tank. Currently, I have most of my fish in my 30 gallon tank, with 11 baby angels in my 10G. I have been thinking that once I have my 75G set up, running, cycled, and with all the fish from the 30G transferred there, I can give my 30G a makeover too. I could get higher lighting and Eco-Complete or Seachem Fluorite for that tank too, and get it nicely planted, perhaps? If you're reading this Carol, what do you think of this?

LOL, I suppose I would do this because I LOVE to be setting up tanks; just playing with the water, decor, gravel, etc ... all give me lots of joy (for some reason! ... maybe because I've always loved water and swimming?). And a 75G will give me plenty of space to transfer my fish to if I wanted to redecorate my 30G. Besides, while the amazon swords are not dying in my 30G, they're not thriving either. The driftwood is starting to look worn out. I think my 30G will need this makeover anyway, which is a matter of time. Giving it a lighting and substrate boost can probably make it last in a good shape for a much longer period. And of course ... I'll have something fun to do! LOL ;D

For some reason, I love the look of a tank full of vallisnerias. Maybe I'll make it full of vals (plus a few of shorter plants to break the aquascape a bit)? Just plants and nothing else ... I wonder how that would look.

That sounds like fun Isabella. Maybe you could use it to experiment with differnt types of plants, then transfer them to your bigger tank once you find ones you really like, and get to thrive well. That is a good idea. Or of course you could always get more fish...HE HE HE

Kanadian, your tanks must be so beautiful I love densely planted tanks that look like a jungle too! So much fun to watch the fish enjoy the plants
