The 20g has a DG, Cory's, Otto's and Glowlight Tetras.
The 55g has a Flame DG, Rubberlip Pleco, Ghost shrimp, Neon Tetras, Red-eye Tetras, Cory's and Black Kuhli Loaches.
Very nice! Low-Tech does require patience while waiting for the plants to grow Your tanks are beautiful Thanks for sharing.

How do you get one of these started? I always think these tanks look great but don't know what plants to get or how to make them grow. Or rocks or anything like that. What's some advice?
