Post your tank evolution!

I was going through some old pics and came up with a fun post! I want everyone to show off their favorite tank from its beginning to what it is now Please add the dates if possible. It is amazing for me to see how people have improved on their aquascaping skills.

I'll start with my planted 55g community tank which started out as a 29g tank.

December 2012 - 29g


March 2013


April 2013


June 10th 2013


July 21st 2013


July 27th 2013

Cool idea! I have been thinking about doing the same thing as well. My pics are on different devices (pc, ext hard drive, phone). I need to upload them onto Imgur and post them here.

I got the led lights that are for growing plants...and all the plants in there are low lighting I have java fern windelov and java fern and java moss and a stem of cambomba...and if I ever switch out my gravel I will probably add a few different plants...and once my anubia nana is nice and big which is in my ten gallon I will cut a piece off of that and put it in there
