Default First planted tank

Well I have decided to try my first planted tank and wanted to start with a 10 that I made in to a aio tank . I got a maxi jet dc return pump for it and made the baffel wall so far.

That's a neat modification! A 20 gallon long tank would be another one that could do well modified that way. I like built-in filters because it greatly reduces the possibility of siphoning most of water out and onto the floor.

Would a admin be able to move this over to the tank Journals ? Would like to make a journal about this tank just to ask questions and stuff all in one spot
