I'm looking to actually start actively caring for an corner style, triangular aquarium I inherited from a friend (about 50cm x 50cm x 70cm). Note that until now, it's basically been a box of water in an ignored corner of the house with 1 anubia on driftwood, and random java moss. Only a couple of platys and guppies which must be pretty hardy, as I rarely take any interest in them, and a few cherry shrimp. No filtration or aeration at all, and a dodgy little underpowered warm coloured LED light which means I can hardly see in the tank anyway. The substrate is just multi-coloured 10-20mm gravel. I'm at a crossroads - either get rid of the tank, or have a decent crack at setting it up and getting some enjoyment for both myself and the inhabitants. I've moved it to my office right next to my desk, so hopefully I'll get to enjoy it and give it the time/energy it deserves. I'm basically just after a nice looking tank, with bugger all maintenance/interaction (which in itself might be impossible). I'm happy to buy a better LED light so I can actually see what's in there, and can accept that a filter might be necessary, but would like to keep this as low maintenance and cost as possible. Don't really care what fish are in there, again so long as they're hardy, cheap, and don't take much work. IMHO plants make the aquarium, so I'm after advice about what species to plant where. Being stuck in a corner, I'm thinking tall plants towards the back, moving down to shorter plants towards the front. I'd really appreciate advice, including what to plant where. Once again, you guessed it, they must be hardy, and require little maintenance. Due to competing priorities, I'd be lucky to have an hour per week to spend on caring for this tank. Perhaps if I get more enjoyment out of it, I'll rearrange these priorities. I can accept that I might be wanting the impossible, and if so I'll walk away from it. Feel free to be brutally honest - I can take it! So, any advice from the ground up - substrate, plants, fish, equipment?
