38 gallon

Just set up this 38 gallon a couple weeks ago. The first picture is immediately after setup, the second is from today, two weeks later. This is my first attempt at a planted tank over 4 gallons. It's still a work in progress, as I can't decide on what to plant in the foreground. and what to fill some of the gaps with. It's still cycling and the only thing living besides the plants are five zebra danios. Ultimately I am going to stock it with a school of congo tetras.

What's the lighting and filtration look like? Some kind of moss would look awesome on the wood piece on the right. Also, Congo's get pretty big... I don't know what your dimensions are, but most of the one's I've seen are around 5" and they swim a lot

The tank is 36" long so it should be able to accommodate a small school. If not I will transfer them into a larger tank.
