My wife got me a 5 gallon fish tank last Christmas. I’ve wanted to set up a planted tank – an aquarium ecosystem balanced by plants. In a planted tank, the vegetation naturally filter water by using bio waste as fertilizer, and typically contain critters like shrimp and snails to keep algae from taking over. This idea was heavily inspired by Youtube videos from Michael Langerman and Foo the Flowerhorn.
