Trying to get back into planted tanks!

Hey everyone!

Been away from planted tanks or any tanks for that matter for quite some time.

Trying to get back into it now, and I have no idea which plants are what anymore!

Time to learn everything all over again.

Here's a photo of what my tank used to look like.

Welcome to AA! It looks like you used to have a pretty nice setup. If you need to learn some info over again, just ask any questions that you have in the planted tank section of the freshwater portion of this forum. There are many talented planted tank enthusiasts on here!

Back Into Planted Tanks

Hello sai...

Ease back into things by getting the dark green aquatic plants. These will require no more than a couple of florescent lamps and a shop light fixture.

I got my finnex planted plus led on Amazon. The red LEDs are supposed to be good for plants. I don't use co2 and still get pearling. About 8 hrs a day seems to work best for my tank.
