Growing up, I would watch my Dad build freshwater aquariums.

He started with a 10-gallon and worked up to a 150-gallon tank.

In 2020, I decided to build my own aquarium. So, I bought a 5-gallon Marineland Portrait.

After doing some research I came across these beautiful live planted aquariums. I knew immediately that’s what I wanted to build.

After making all the classic beginner mistakes, I’m on a mission to share my experience. And by doing so, hopefully, it makes your journey easier.
