Hi!

Hello!

I'm not new to fishkeeping but it's been a VERY long time since I've had a tank. I'm currently struggling big time with a fishless cycle on my 65gal freshwater tank so I thought I'd join a community and learn

I look forward to getting to know everyone!

No just my profession, but nothing like drinking beer and watching fish in man/fish cave after a long night at work.

You'll get there, will probably get MTS like the rest of us.
Multi tank syndrome, I got back into the hobby a year ago.
Now I have 3 tanks and want another!

Love your tank! What plants did you put in it? I'm trying to decide what to get for mine. Need something low tech and easy that I can plant in the gravel.

Welcome to the community!!!

Crypts - many varieties and colorations, are mostly great starter plants and are not too picky other than the possible dreaded Crypt melt where the old leaves die and new ones grow. I honestly have had little to no issue with it in the last 5 years.

Okay then you can look into floating plants, moss, just wouldn't be able to do stem plants unless you get pots with subscrate in it

I dont consider my aquascaping "good" haha i just threw in the plants by sticking with the background, mid-ground & foreground concept, not knowing how they would grow out. Unfortunately i lost alot of plants due to ponds... 😡
