    Hello everyone, my name is Van. I love fish since I was a child. To me, watching fishes swim is the most amazing time. I used to keep tetras, betta fish, gold fish, flowerhorn fish, and koi fish in my native country, Viet Nam. I was impressed by the beauty of aquatic plants since I first saw them in planted aquariums. There is no reason not to own such a beautiful planted aquarium, so I finally got a old 30 gallon tank to endure my dream. I have no experience with planted tank at all. I read and read a lot about it but that seems not enough for me. Thus, it's my pleasure to learn new things from people in this forum. :)
    Thanks.

    This is certainly the correct place to learn.

    What type of Aquascape are you interested in having?

    A 30yld tank I hope that is a typo mistake, do you mean 3yld.

    I meant a used 30 gallon tank. I am waiting for my plant package which was ordered online, so my tank is still empty.:LOL:
    I like aquascape that has driftwood and rocks. I have two pieces of driftwood and some tiny lava rocks, but still considering about their arrangements. I'll post it in another topic.
    Thank you.

    Van that's about 114 lt empty at least 1-15% will be hard scape materials

    Do a bit of Aquascaping research on that size tank first.

    If its a second hand tank give it a good testing outdoors just in case it has a leak.

    Thank you greenfinger 2.:)

    Keight,
    The seller told me it's not leak. After that I read things to do when you buy a used tank. I didn't test or look at it seriously. The seller was pretty nice, though.

    If I was selling a second hand tank I would be more than very nice.

    Many years ago I took a new 45lt tank back to the maker as it leaked, he tested it it leaked and he threw it in the waste bin not worth repairing, he gave me a new tank that he tested first.
