Thank you. I am not using CO2, these are all Low Tech plants. I am using white aquarium gravel. Been using Seachem Root Tabs, Excel Flourish Liquid Fert & Coralife 2x 65 Lights.

I'm so jealous. I wish I could just clap my hands and have an established, beautiful planted tank like yours.

haha! Thanks... It's actually quite easy. Like I said, I am not into the CO2 thing, so I've went with all Low-Tech plants and some Fertilizers. Only few months ago, my first fish were two Bettas in a Separated 10gal Tank and now....... LOL

Thank you for the comment Much appreciated

Great looking tanks and photos. What type of camera are you using? I've tried photographing mine with my rebel but I must not be using the right settings any advice on how to take photos like yours?
ex: shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance? any of that if you know?

Looks great. Any shrimp or "lobsters"? There are so many shrimp for freshwater now. I saw a dwarf ghost lobster (white small crayfish) the other day.

Hehe.. I'd be lying to say I took the photos. My wife is a professional photographer so I have no clue of what she did.. All I know is she uses a Canon SLR with special lenses.

I am planning on putting some Shrimps in my 60 gal Tank soon, once it matures a lil' more.
I do have Bamboo Shrimps (x3) in my 20 gal at the moment. I've had them for about a year.

Could you post a list of the plants you're using? I'm getting ready to setup a 55 gallon planted tank, but I'm still looking for plant ideas. Budget constraints aren't really allowing for a CO2 setup at the moment.

I really have no clue what most of the plants are called. I just got them at Big Al's in the low light planters section.
I know I have some "Cardimine lyrata " and they are doing absolutely awesome, and my "Elatine americana " are growing out of control (About 1"/day), and some "Bolbitis heudelotii" .
Those are about the only plants I know of. The rest are just randoms.
