New plants were planted three weeks ago, so not the end.
This tank functions of storage tank for the new 120 liter tank which will start in 2 months time.

Really nice eye for composition there, something I don't have. As said before, you wouldn't realise this was only 54l! Maybe those are just reeeeally big neons...

Very nice. I agree with the others, can't believe it's only 54 litres.

Good quality photo too, thanks for sharing!

Thank you all Guys for your good comments.
I'm glad you like it.
The aquarium is from Aldi and front glass its not optiwhite.
I just change lights in cover for 2x24W

I've used Cannon 450d + Sigma 18-200 mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS
Manual camera settings. ISO400 1/50s f/8.0 50mm.
Dark room and lights coming just from front glass of tank (rest is covered by blanket).
I used stand for camera and aproximately 1m from tank.

That is absolutely deadly - I wish I had half your skill in keeping plants or your eye for a layout

Tank is amazing!! Fair Play!!as everyone has said...I can't believe it's only 54L. It all looks really healthy :)

I've tried the planted tank business and failed due to many reasons... cichlids and plants don't mix was one expensive lesson :cheer: . Bought some of the Co2 gear and some other thing but all got the better of me and it's still all in the boxes!!

any advice on a fool proof plant that will live in sand, cope with tetras, one yo-yo loach, and a skunk, and isn't demanding on light or general needs other than what would be provided for the fish??? I think I remember that not many plants like the sand :unsure: ??
