Stunning tank, going to look amazing in a few months - wouldn't want to know how much that set up cost, I'm sure it wasn't cheap.

Lol cost is all relative. I used to think my FW setups were costly. Then I got a reef tank...

Thanks for the compliments.

Can't say that mine is "heavily" planted but here's my 29G

Attachment 114715

I think the hardest part of a planted tank is patiently waiting for the plants to fill out, my Java moss has been the hardest to get it to attach to anything. I have a naughty little pleco that likes to move it all over the tank every night

I'm going through the same thing. Darn Eastern American newt and SAE are uprooting my glosso left and right. Didn't help that I just chopped 80% of it hoping it would root more solidly. Just have to wait for it to fill back in. Glad my bushynose doesn't uproot it, too.

Seriously!! But I guess after a long time of planning, and of course paying, it all pays off in the end and you can enjoy the beauty of it all.
