morning people,

i have not had a tropical tank since moving from my discus tank over to my current reef tank, i had a spare 45cm cube tank so decided to do a planted tank in the corner of my kitchen, it’s viewable from 2 sides which made it tricky, but i’m happy with how it came out, there’s a few things i would do differently if i had my time again, but opinions welcome, it’s now 6 days old and looking well, except from the fury wood which i’m hoping will clear up soon. A huge growth from the sessiloflora, literally doubled in size, here’s a few pics and specs

i am currently doing a 30% water change every other day, no co2 for now, we will see how it goes

Looking great!

Any idea on stocking when tank is matured?
not too sure, most likely a small shoal of tetras with some shrimp and snails, ideally as low maintenance as possible as i have enough on my plate with the marine tank
